Tip Reasoning

Columbus Crew are much in need of three points this weekend as Sunday’s hosts sit second from bottom in the Eastern Conference table after picking up eighteen points from twenty-two matches. Visitors Montreal Impact have twelve more points on the board with the same amount of games played as Columbus Crew, which is enough to see the Canadians occupying fifth place in the table. However, both teams are in the midst of winless runs and confidence levels in both camps are bound to be low.

Columbus Crew were away at Chicago Fire on Thursday where they trailed at the break by a goal to nil. Early in the second half Columbus Crew’s top scorer Zardes equalised but the hosts restored their one-goal advantage shortly after the hour mark. Time looked to have run out for the visitors as the game entered the final minute but one last attack saw Williams score and rescue a point for Columbus Crew.

Montreal Impact haven’t played since last weekend when they entertained fellow Canadians Toronto, where a tight and tense first half ended goalless. Montreal Impact controlled the majority of the possession during the ninety minutes but just after the hour mark their guests took the lead against the run of play. The hosts pushed forward in search of an equaliser their play deserved but instead, Toronto scored again in stoppage time to wrap up a 2-0 victory.

The recent head to head record between these two sides and the performances of both clubs over the last six weeks suggests that both teams will score on Sunday, and we’re backing Columbus Crew to end their torrid winless run. Four of the last seven meetings between these two clubs have seen both teams score and Columbus Crew have won three of the pair’s last five encounters. Columbus Crew have not kept a single clean sheet in their last seven matches in all competitions, while their guests haven’t kept a clean sheet in any of their last nine matches in league and cup. Both teams scored in five of Montreal Impact’s last six matches, which is why we’re backing a 2-1 win for Columbus Crew this weekend.

Zardes continues to lead the way for Columbus Crew with six goals in the MLS so far this season, while Algerian midfielder Taïder has netted seven league goals for Montreal Impact. We’re confident that both teams will score on Sunday and have predicted a final scoreline of 2-1 to Columbus Crew. The hosts aren’t the form favourites heading into Sunday’s match but they do have a good recent record against their guests and have the home support behind them. Both teams have been conceding goals on a regular basis and we can’t see either side keeping a clean sheet on Sunday.
