The home team couldn’t get a single point in the last five head-to-heads against Montreal.

Toronto team news and form: Suspension issues for Herdman

As we mentioned earlier in our Toronto vs Montreal predictions, coach Herdman won’t be able to count on iconic Italian player Federico Bernardeschi in this match. The former Juventus star earned himself a red card a few days ago and will, sadly, miss the match against Montreal.

Predicted lineup: Gavran (GK), Gomis, Mabika, Rosted, Longstaff, Spicer, Coello, Thompson, Petretta, Kerr & Insigne

Montreal team news and form: Stats lie sometimes

Montreal may have lost their home game against 2023 MLS champions Columbus Crew, but Yankov and his teammates certainly didn’t perform as poorly as the 1-3 win for Nancy’s boys suggests. They had about the same number of goalscoring opportunities and almost the same amount of possession.

Predicted lineup: Sirois (GK), Corbo, Waterman, Sosa, Teixeira, Zouhir, Wanyama, Lessiter, Choiniere, Yankov & Ibrahim

Player to watch: Lorenzo Insigne

After spending the better part of the season injured, Lorenzo Insigne made a return for Toronto two weeks ago. He was featured in the last two matches for the Canucks, but in both of them, he was on the bench.

Lorenzo to start scoring soon

If our Toronto vs Montreal predictions succeed, it would be because CF Montreal’s boss has found a way to stop Insigne. The Italian has two goals this season, and while that doesn’t sound like much, he is still one of the most prolific soccer players in MLS and he is bound to start scoring again.
