DC United can continue their good run in Friday's clash with Montreal, live on SS3.
DC United v Montreal Impact – Friday 00:35, Sky Sports 3
DC pipped Montreal to 4th place in the Eastern Conference as both these sides lost their final regular season games. As a result, DC have home advantage here as they play for the chance to meet the New York Red Bulls in the Conference semi-finals.
DC won four of their final five games and lost just two of their last 15 to secure their playoff spot. Indeed, they won six of nine unbeaten home games to end the season and lost just four times at the D.C. United Stadium all campaign.
Montreal, conversely, lost half of their final 12 games and won just four of 17 on the road all season, though they did draw seven times, including 1-1 at DC back in July. However, their form worsened markedly after that and as a result we’re backing DC to win and continue their good run.
