CF Montreal continued their poor form in their last game and they are now on a 6-match winless streak. With just a few games left this season and with DC United closing in on the 9th position, CF Montreal will be hoping they can snatch a win here to save them from dropping off the Playoff spot. They are with 37 points, same as DC United and they face Houston Dynamo.
Houston are also not in their best form and they are coming off a goalless draw with FC Dallas in their last game. A win for Houston Dynamo in this match would also mean a lot as they need 3 points to avoid falling off the 5th spot.Grab Your Signup Bonus
CF Montreal have been a standard team for most parts of the season until now and their dream of ending in a playoff position is about to get ruined by a string of poor performances from the team. They are currently in 9th spot with 37 points in the eastern conference with DC United and Chicago Fire occupying 10th and 11th spot with the same point. That is Why this clash is very crucial for Montreal's survival.

Analysis and Predictions
The pressure is building and both teams can't afford to let this slip. I don't expect either side to sit back and play safe as they both need a win. Attacking style might also be what makes them vulnerable at the back as they are both in poor form. But I don't see any side edging out the other despite the bookmakers indicating a difference between both clubs.
