Team News

Columbus
Montreal
  • Josh Williams is a doubt for the game against the Montreal Impact as he strives to overcome a groin strain, with Federico Higuain also struggling to return to full fitness.
  • Hector Jimenez is also expected to be sidelined for the Columbus Crew.
  • Sanna Nyassi remains sidelined for the Montreal Impact with a serious ankle injury, with Adrian Lopez also expected to be ruled out against the Columbus Crew.

Prediction

  • After drawing five games in a row the Columbus Crew finally snapped the run, but with two successive defeats. Losses to the New York Red Bulls and Sporting Kansas City have left the Crew slipping down the Conference table, as Federico Higuain's niggling injury leaves them short of their best player.
  • The Montreal Impact have failed to build on their 3-0 win over the Houston Dynamo and have since suffered two defeats in succession. The signing of striker Jack McInerney has done little to spark their ailing frontline into life. Can they find a win against a relatively weak Crew side?
  • This one is hard to call, with both teams coming into the game in poor form. It could be case of who isn't the worst on the day.
