New England Revolution vs. Montreal Odds
Revolution to Keep the Top Spot in East
The Revs hit the wall for one moment, winning just one point three games during late June and early July. However, Bruce Arena’s guys have responded to the adversities swiftly, posting two victories in a row, both on the road, against United in Atlanta, 0-1 and against Inter in Miami, 0-5.
These two matches have shown just a glimpse of the Revs’ potential, and even though the rivals weren’t top teams, that won’t diminish New England’s success.
This unit likes to play open and offensive football, scoring goals and conceding on the other hand as well, and only one in the last seven matches has seen under 2.5 hits. Five during that stretch were with both teams to score.
Revs are still without their starting goalkeeper, Matt Turner, who is away with the US national team. The same is with Tajon Buchanan. Luis Caicedo is injured.
Montreal Wants to Start Another Defeatless Streak
The Canadian team played six matches in which they haven’t lost but had to lay down their weapons before NYC on the road, 1-0. It was a narrow defeat, which could have been avoided, but, simply, Montreal’s luck ran out in this case.
In three matches during that invincible streak, Montreal managed to keep its net intact. Overall, four of their five games away from home saw just one team netting, and all those five events ended with under 2.5 goals. The record in these matches is mediocre, two wins and losses with one draw.
Kamal Miller and Samuel Piette are with the Canadian national team at the Gold Cup, while Romell Quioto stayed there with Honduras. Goalie Clement Diop injured his leg, Ballou Tabla and Kiki Struna are out due to respective injuries.
New England Revolution vs. Montreal Head to Head Games
The Revolution hosted Montreal in November 2020 and won that clash 2-1. They have four straight wins over this team, and three of them cane with both teams scoring.
