Montreal team news and form: No one blaming CF Montreal

Montreal lost the match against in-form Herons at Saputo Stadium via a 2-3 score. You can’t blame the players for losing this match, as the visitors had Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez on their side. Sure, Messi was kept quiet but the Uruguayan goalscorer did his thing and helped Inter Miami get vital three points.

Predicted lineup: Sirois (GK), Campbell, Waterman, Alvarez, Teixeira, Piette, Choiniere, Lassiter, Duke, Vilsaint & Toye

Columbus Crew team news and form: Disappointing loss for MLS champs

Coach Wilfried Nancy was not happy after last week’s match against Cincinnati. His boys should’ve won this game if you are to look at the statistics. Columbus Crew had twice as many shots at target and 55.0% possession, but in the end, they lost 1-2 to coach Noonan’s players. However, we are sure that Cucho Hernandez and his colleagues will get up from this knock to prove our Montreal vs Columbus Crew predictions correct.

Predicted lineup: Schulte (GK), Moreira, Camacho, Amundsen, Matan, Nagbe, Morris, Zawadzki, Russell-Rowe, Rossi & Hernandez

Player to watch: Cucho Hernandez

Diego Rossi with the assist, Cucho with the goal. How many times have we seen this happen in 2024? Cucho Hernandez and Diego Rossi formed an incredible duo in Columbus Crew’s attack, so we have high hopes that our Montreal vs Columbus Crew predictions will succeed.

Hernandez scoring for fun

Cucho Hernandez has four goals so far, and while that may not sound like plenty, we have to mention he was the second-best finisher in MLS last season.
