Football Predictions

CF Montreal welcomes Atlanta United to Saputo Stadium for an MLS clash in the Eastern Conference on Sunday as they look to bounce back from their last outing defeat against New York City.

Montreal’s six-game winning streak on home soil without conceding a goal came to an end when they lost 1-0 against New York City FC last Sunday. They find themselves down in ninth place in the current standings after 20 matches, six points behind Sunday’s opponents Atlanta in seventh who have played a game more.

Aside from last weekend’s defeat, Montreal have fared much better on home soil so far this season, accumulating 21 of their 26 MLS points at Saputo Stadium. They have also conceded the fewest home goals (four) of any team across either Conference division so far this season.

After suffering a heavy 4-0 loss away against New York Red Bulls at the end of June, Atlanta bounced back in their first game of July with a 2-0 home victory against Philadelphia Union last Sunday. Sitting in seventh place with 32 points from 21 matches, Gonzalo Pineda’s men are only eight points behind last season’s total of 40 points with 14 games still to play, and victory on Sunday could see them climb to as high as fourth spot in the Eastern Conference if other results go their way.

H2H/Stats

Montreal are unbeaten in their last four home meetings with Atlanta and have won their last two by a 2-1 scoreline, with a late strike from Joaquin Torres securing maximum points in their most recent encounter in April last year.

Team News

The home side will be without Samuel Piette (groin) and Romell Quioto (hamstring) while Zachary Brault-Guillard and Aaron Herrera are still away on international duty with Canada and Guatemala respectively at the CONCACAF Gold Cup. Mathieu Choiniere is doubtful after missing the last match with an ankle issue and Lassi Lappalainen will also need assessing ahead of kickoff after sitting out of the last three games with an abdominal problem.

As for Atlanta, Franco Ibarra is suspended due to an accumulation of yellow cards. Giorgos Giakoumakis was forced off after half-an-hour in the win over Philadelphia with a hamstring injury and the Greek striker is unlikely to be involved on Sunday. They will also have to cope without USA defender Miles Robinson as he still away on international duty at the CONCACAF Gold Cup, while Trinidad & Tobago’s Ajani Fortune and Haiti’s Derrick Etienne have been eliminated from the competition, but the duo are not expected to be involved in Pineda’s squad this weekend.

Probable Line Ups

CF Montreal XI: Sirois; Waterman, Camacho, Corbo; Rea, Wanyama, Saliba, Lassiter; Duke; Ibrahim, Offor

Atlanta United XI: Guzan; Lennon, Abram, Purata, Gutman; Rossetto, Sejdic; Wolff, Almada, Wiley; Berry

Verdict

Atlanta will be in a buoyant mood following last weekend’s win but they face a Montreal side who have been formidable at home and are angling to bounce back from their last weekend’s loss.
