CF Montreal lock horns with the New England Revolution in the Saputo Stadium. Both teams have maintained a nice form that places them in the top side of the table. Both teams have not tasted defeat in as many as 5 league games. CF Montreal are pressing a claim for the Eastern Conference top spot, with league leaders Philadelphia, leading them by 5 points, but having played a game more. The New England Revolution, on the other hand, are 6th, but are under threat from 7th place Orlando, who are just one point away.
The win is quite important for both teams, but whether both teams will take the risk of going all out for the win or playing safe to maintain their perfect record, is not known.
