MLS Preview: Montreal Impact - FC Dallas

Jared Wickerham

Two teams who led their conferences earlier this season are now desperate for wins to end runs of poor form.

Montreal Impact (4-4-2): Perkins; Camara, Nesta, Ferrari, Brovsky; Romero, Bernier, Arnaud, Mapp; Di Vaio, Paponi.


OUT: Nelson Rivas (L knee surgery), Maximiliamo Rodriguez (foot injury)
FC Dallas (4-4-2): Fernandez; Loyd, Keel, Hedges, Benitez; Jackson, Michel, Jacobson, Watson; Hassli, Cooper.


OUT: Ugo Ihemelu (concussion) - IR, Peter Luccin (torn R ACL) - IR

George John (L hamstring strain), Walker Zimmerman (R hamstring strain)
  • Despite leading Major League Soccer's Eastern Conference for much of the season, Montreal has hit a four-game winless streak and slipped behind Sporting Kansas City.
  • Dallas is in a similar boat. After setting the pace for MLS in the early weeks, the Hopps have failed to win in their last seven games.
  • This is Dallas' first-ever visit to Montreal and Stade Saputo.
  • In the only previous meeting between Dallas and Montreal, on April 14, 2012, the Texan side took a 2-1 win at home.
  • Due to yellow card accumulation, Dallas forward Fabian Castillo is suspended for this match.
