MLS: CF Montreal tries to sign for a second straight win, against the Red Bulls


CF Montreal is trying to build on its momentum on Saturday afternoon on the road against the New York Red Bulls.

It is currently tied 1-1 after Rudi Camacho scored in the 71st minute with a masterful header.

After signing their first win of the season last week, not without a major effort, Wilfried Nancy’s men have a fine challenge against New York, second in the East.

CFM’s last defeat dates back to March 12, when they lost 4-1 to New York City FC. Since then, Nancy’s team has drawn two matches (including one in the Champions League) and won a duel.

CF Montreal’s defense will have to show better than it has since the start of the season, having already conceded 14 goals in five MLS games.

After depriving Nancy of several important items last week, she can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. He will be able to count on Romell Quioto, who has left the COVID-19 protocol, and it looks like Sunusi Ibrahim is on the cusp of returning to the game, although his presence is questionable against the Red Bulls.

Since Impact/CF Montreal arrived at the MLS in 2012, the Red Bulls have won 11 of their 12 home games against FC Montreal. In league history, no team has had a better success rate (91.7%) against the same team on its field, with a minimum of eight games.

New York are looking for their first home win of the season, as they are limited to a 0-1-1 in two games in front of their home fans.

This will be Montreal’s last game on hostile territory before returning to Saputo Stadium next Saturday against the White Caps.
