CF Montreal have enjoyed quite a stable form this season until the fell to a 2-1 defeat to Nashville in their last match. A whopping 3 wins in their last 4 games, these guys are oozing form. At home they have 3 straight wins in their last 3 games. The last time they saw a defeat on home soil was against Philadelphia after two second half goals from Alejandro Bedoya and Daniel Gazdag in the second half. Montreal have 23 goals already in the MLS, however they've also conceded 21 goals which raises questions for their defensive unit.
Real Salt Lake
Salt lake sits at 12th place with 19 points in total. Last time out, they came from behind to defeat Austin in the 2nd half who had a man sent out for a reckless challenge. Away from home, they are ghosts with 2 loses and 3 draws in their last 5 games. The last defeat was 2-0 at Nashville and before that a 6-0 thumping at New York City FC. In their last away match they were clearly blown out of the water on stats after they managed just 6 shots (2 on target) and 46% of the possession.
Head to Head
These two have met 8 times in total. Montreal won 4 of those encounters, Salt Lake got 2, and 2 ended in a stalemate. The last match ended in a 2-1 victory for Montreal, although there was nothing much to separate both teams on stats. But who knows? That match was far back as 2019.
