The games are coming quickly for the Impact which, after losing to the Philadelphia Union on Sunday, must already face the New England Revolution late in the afternoon on Wednesday.
The Montreal eleven will try to turn things around by putting an end to a two-game losing streak, in which he allowed seven goals and scored only two.
But things are not going much better for New England, who are no doubt hoping to catch up with the Bleu-blanc-noir since only one point separates them in the Eastern Conference standings, the Impact (16 points) occupying the sixth place and the “Revs” (15 points), the seventh.
The Bruce Arena team have won only one victory in their last five meetings and they are struggling at home since they have not yet won at home (0-4-1).
We tell you right away, do not expect an explosion of goals from one side or the other since the “Revs” have a discreet attack (10 goals), but are also stingy in defense with only 11 goals. granted.
If the Revolution is shy offensively, the Impact risks being too since Romell Quioto, who has scored a third of the team's 18 goals, will be absent.
He will serve his suspension match following the red card he received for a silly gesture against the Union on Sunday.
“We lost Romell, he's a guy who passes and takes depth, we'll see how we're going to be without him,” said Thierry Henry.
At least Henry will recover two other cardboard players during the last meetings in Emanuel Maciel and Rudy Camacho.
The Impact driver certainly hopes that his team will not receive a red card in a fourth game in a row, which tends to cut the wings.
“It's a game-changer when you play 10 and that's what cut us off in some situations. ”
Henry can hardly explain this indiscipline of his men, especially in the case of Camacho and Quioto, who received reds for a gesture of frustration.
“I've rarely seen a team lose control while leading, usually it's losing. ”
