Saturday at Stade Saputo, as MON host Phili in the Major League Soccer.

It’s a clash of sixth vs fourteenth, as MON host Phili at Stade Saputo.

Montréal go into this fixture with 28 points secured

MON have suffered at the hands of Philadelphia Union and Cincinnati in their previous two matches, with two successive draws. They go into this game with the hope of taking all three points.

With two draws in two meetings, MON need to develop a strategy for getting over the line in games. With sixth, they currently sit 28 points in the League having won seven meetings, drawn seven matches, and lost seven games.

Phili will have to defy the odds when they travel to MON, if they are to get anything out of the game. With MON having won five matches, drawn three meetings, and lost one game this season at home, this is a huge ask.

A win in this fixture would take Montréal’s points to 31 in the League.

Toronto FC have so far accrued 15 points in this season of the Major League Soccer

Whilst Phili need a positive result from this fixture, they cannot afford to throw caution to the wind. Another successive defeat for Phili after losing against Inter Miami and Atlanta United would represent a worrying sign of where they are just now.

Phili need to get out of the losing habit, with 10 recorded in the last 16 games. They currently sit in fourteenth place, with a total of 15 points having won three meetings, drawn six meetings, and lost 12 games.

Phili’s away record is remarkable and poses a significant threat to MON. In the 12 games they’ve played on the road this season, they have so far won two fixtures, drawn one game, and lost nine matches.

A victory for Toronto FC would put them on 18 points.

When these two sides meet, a draw is never usually the expected outcome. In the past 30 matches, Phili have won 15 victories and MON 11 wins. Their most recent encounter in this competition was April 2021 and the score line ended up with a 4-2 away win for Montréal.
