Montreal Impact to return to winning ways against Real Salt Lake

Montreal Impact head into this Wednesday night encounter against Real Salt Lake on the back of just 1 win out of their last 5 matches overall in the MLS.

It was a 2-1 win away at New York Red Bulls, but they’ll also be looking forward to a return to their Stade Saputo in Quebec for this upcoming clash.

Since beating Red Bulls, Montreal have stumbled to back-to-back defeats on their travels at Cincinnati 2-1 and Los Angeles 4-2 while also gaining a point in a 0-0 draw at home with New England Revolution last time out on home turf.

Montreal Impact sit in 4th place in the Eastern Conference although they’ve played 11 of their 15 matches so far this season away from home. The hosts will therefore be grateful for a return to home turf here, especially as they look to close the gap on Eastern Conference leaders, DC United, who are just 4 points ahead of them prior to this Wednesday night’s action.

Montreal have registered wins over Columbus Crew and Chicago Fire so far this season and although they subsequently lost to New York City, they’ll be looking to take advantage of an inconsistent Real Salt Lake outfit here.

Onto Real Salt Lake, and the visitors currently occupy 6th place on the Western Conference ladder, winning 4 of their 6 wins to date this term at their Rio Tinto Stadium in Utah, where they’ve won 4 of their 6 matches played on home turf to date.

It’s true that Real Salt Lake have won their last 3 matches on the trot in the MLS but only 1 of these were recorded on their travels which was a 3-2 win at Colorado Rapids - and with just 2 wins from their 7 away matches to date, the visitors are by no means guaranteed of all three points in Canada on Wednesday night.

Wins at Cincinnati and Colorado Rapids have been offset, and then some, by defeats at DC United 5-0, Los Angeles 2-1, Seattle Sounders 1-0 and LA Galaxy 2-1.

In addition, Real Salt Lake have kept just 2 clean sheets from their last 15 away matches. They’ve lost each of their 3 previous visits to Montreal Impact 3-1, 4-1 and 3-2 respectively.

Montreal Impact have held the upper hand in previous encounters and look set to continue this trend on Wednesday night.
