Orlando City – Montreal Impact Preview
- Orlando City SC are searching for back-to-back wins against Montreal Impact for the first time since 2016, having lost five of the previous seven H2Hs (W1, D1). They established themselves as one of the surprise packages of the group stage, as they collected 7+ league points from a three-match period for just the second time since May 2018.
- The ‘Lions’ are yet to concede a HT deficit at any venue this season, with one lead and four 0-0 results. Their season record of W2, D2, L1 is outstanding given that they have opened the scoring just once from their five fixtures.
- Montreal have trailed at the break once this season, but have established just one HT lead despite opening the scoring in two of their last four MLS matches. Furthermore, the team to score first has gone on to win all three of Montreal’s MLS is Back fixtures by a one-goal margin.
- The Impact will be pleased to have scored 2+ goals in three of their five matches this season, despite averaging just three shots on goal per game. However, a defence that has managed just one clean sheet from their last 11 MLS games in the USA is unlikely to prevent both teams scoring.
- Players to watch: Orlando’s Chris Mueller will be looking to become one of, if not the first player, to record his team’s opening goal on four occasions in 2020.
- Saphir Taïder has returned to scoring form for Montreal with goals in back-to-back matches, most recently opening the scoring.
- Stat attack: The winner has also led at HT in each of the last four H2Hs.
- All but one of Orlando’s MLS fixtures this season saw at least four cards awarded.
- Montreal have collected the fewest cards of the game just once this MLS season.
