Market: Both teams score
Chance: 7/10 @ 888sport
Two teams who find themselves enjoying a real purple patch, Montreal will welcome Nashville at the Saputo stadium in the early hours of Sunday morning.
Starting with the hosts, while Montreal would have been disappointed to have left August with two consecutive draws, Wilfried Nancy’s side have continued to impress many across America this season. Sitting in pole position to secure a spot in the Final Series this year, the Quebec-based team was last seen putting on another eye-catching show. Rushing to a 3-1 win over Toronto at home, the Blacks have lost just one of their last six MLS games, a run that dates back to August 1. Looking to widen their margin in the top seven this weekend, Montreal should also be strengthened by their continued success at the Saputo stadium. Including that stunning 5-4 win over Cincinnati on July 18, Sunday’s hosts have picked up 16 points in just their last six MLS games in front of their supporters.
As for the visitors, while many thought Nashville could face a tough home turf test last weekend against New York, the Yellows established another indicator. Putting on a wild show as they made their way to a 3-1 win at Nissan Stadium, Gary Smith’s team appears to have made their way to another spot in the Final Series. Collecting 10 points in just their last four MLS games, a run that is also highlighted by an action-packed 5-2 win over DC United, they have truly recovered from last month’s 2-1 defeat at Inter Milan. You love me. Now, in a remarkable run of form that has seen them miss out on just one of their last 14 consecutive races, a run that dates back to June 19, don’t be surprised to see the opportunities quickly build up here.
Bet: Both teams will score in Montreal against Nashville 7/10 for Sunday’s MLS match @ 888sport
