Montreal impact win

Montreal Impact were extremely disappointed to lose two points against Nashville – even if it was an away match. Despite taking a two goal lead, Montreal threw away points and had to settle for a draw. The result also exposes the strength of the team going forward after once again getting 1.5+ goals. Columbus Crew are aiming for the first win of the campaign, but Montreal has had success against Columbus Crew when playing at home. Montreal have five wins in the last six home games against the Crew.

Total goals over 2.5

Columbus Crew have struggled in away matches against Montreal with three clean sheets in the last four visits. Yet, the start of the new season has witnessed goals from both clubs in plenty. The Crew are still waiting for the first goal of the MLS 2021 season.

Mason Toye to score anytime

Toye has had a brilliant start to the MLS 2021 season after opening the scoring for Montreal in both their MLS matches so far. After failing to score a goal in the seven appearances last season, the 22-year-old has had a brilliant start to the current season. Despite not being a prolific scorer, he is on course to continuing his good form.

Montreal Impact vs Columbus Crew: Team News and Match Preview

Montreal Impact

Montreal Impact would be very disappointed with losing two points against Nashville, as the team appeared to be in a comfortable space after the second goal from Brault-Guillard. Yet, Montreal were simply outplayed by Nashville in the second half. The confidence built up by the emphatic win over Toronto in the opening game might have taken a dip after the points against Nashville. Despite sitting at the top of the Eastern Conference, Wilfried Nancy’s team have to do without Luis Binks and Ballou Tabla.

Columbus Crew

Columbus Crew missed a great opportunity to start the season with a win. The midweek match against Monterrey in the CONCACAF Champions League also produced more disappointment for the team. The away record of Columbus Crew is not great. In such a scenario, Caleb Porter will be happy to come out with points rather than defeats. The possibility of Jonathan Mensah and Derrick Etienne taking part is doubtful.
