New York Red Bulls v Montreal Impact - Sunday 00:00, Sky Sports 3
While the Red Bulls are up in 2nd and well-placed to make it through safely to the playoffs, Montreal’s position down in 5th is a little less secure, though they do have a game in hand on Philadelphia in 4th.
The Red Bulls are on a 12 match unbeaten streak, though they have drawn seven of those as they’ve struggled somewhat at the back, with just two clean sheets in their last 10. However, they’ve won nine of 11 unbeaten games at home with seven clean sheets and six wins by more than one goal, while they led at the break in seven of these.
Indeed, Montreal were beaten 3-1 at the Red Bull Arena just over a month ago and we can’t see them reversing that form here as they’ve since lost to the likes of Chicago and Orlando, both of whom look unlikely to make the playoffs.
Since Impact have trailed at the break in six of their last seven, we’re backing the Red Bulls to be ahead at half-time and full-time.
