Montreal Impact meet New York City FC at Stade Saputo on Saturday afternoon in the MLS.
A debut goal off the bench for the Impact from Panamanian attacker Omar Browne late in the game secured them a 1-0 win on home-turf against Chicago Fire last weekend.
It was a second straight win for the Impact following an excellent 3-0 win on the road at New England Revolution prior to beating Chicago. All the goals in the win over the Revolution came late in the game too.
NYCFC come into the match on a five-game undefeated streak following a 1-1 draw at home to Orlando City last weekend. It was a game that NYCFC dominated in terms of both possession and shots taken, but an equalizing goal from Brazilian striker Heber early in the second half was all they had to show for their endeavours.
