Two sides looking to secure a play-off finish this season, Montreal Impact will host Real Salt Lake in the early hours of Thursday morning.
Starting with the hosts, while Montreal may still have their sights set on securing a play-off finish in the Eastern Conference this year, they are enduring a worrying run of form. In their opening 15 MLS matches this campaign, they have recorded six wins, three draws and six defeats, scoring 17 and conceding 23 in return. While they may sit four points adrift of league leaders DC United, The Impact do hold the second worst defensive record in the division.

It is also worth noting that Thursday’s hosts have also recorded just a single clean sheet in their last five outings.
As for the visitors, despite their sluggish start to the new MLS campaign, Real Salt Lake have begun to show some real signs of improvement. In their 13 matches this season, they have recorded six wins, one draw and six defeats, scoring 20 and conceding 21 in return. With a points tally of 19, they currently sit sixth in the Western Conference and hold a three-point buffer from slipping out of the play-off positions. As for their recent run of results, Real Salt have won their last three matches on the bounce, scoring two or more goals in each of those victories. Thursday’s visitors have also won two of their previous three matches on the road, scoring three goals in both of those victories.
