Montreal Impact meet Philadelphia Union at Stade Saputo in MLS action on Saturday evening.
This could be a good time for the Union, the current Eastern Conference leaders, to be taking on mid-table Impact, with Montreal having lost their last four MLS games. Last weekend Impact went down to a 2-1 loss on the road at Columbus Crew.
After falling behind early on, defender Zakaria Diallo had drawn Montreal level in 1st half stoppage-time, only for the Crew to take the lead again almost immediately after the interval. Any hopes of rallying a second time were largely undone when Diallo’s fellow French defender, Bacary Sagna, was red carded 10-minutes into the second period.
The U recovered from a heavy 4-0 loss on the road to Real Salt Lake a fortnight ago, with a 2-0 win at home to Chicago Fire last time out, with goals from Mexican Marco Fabian and teenage midfielder Anthony Fontana, who scored within a few minutes of coming off the bench to replace his fellow goalscorer.

Looking at our MLS predictions for this game, the home field advantage for the Impact can’t be discounted, but their dip in form has to be a concern.
