MLS Preview: Montreal Impact - New York Red Bulls

The Impact's encouraging start to life in Major League Soccer will be put to the test by the form side in the Eastern Conference.

By Keith Hickey

Montreal Impact (4-4-2): Ricketts; Camara, Ferrari, Rivas, Brovsky; Mapp, Warner, Martins, Neagle; Arnaud, Corradi.


OUT: DF Zarek Valentin (R calf contusion); DF Josh Gardner (L hamstring tendinitis); FW Evan James (nose fracture)

DOUBTFUL: MF Justin Mapp (R calf strain)
New York Red Bulls (4-4-2): Meara; Barklage, Pearce, Ruthven, Miller; Ballouchy, McCarty, Marquez, Lindpere; Richards, Cooper.


OUT: FW Thierry Henry (R hamstring strain); DF Wilman Conde (L groin strain); DF Stephen Keel (back strain); MF Teemu Tainio (R knee sprain); FW Jose Angulo (R knee sprain)

QUESTIONABLE: DF Jan Gunnar Solli (L quadriceps injury)
  • New York has coped well with the loss of Thierry Henry to injury. The Red Bulls have gone 3-0-0, scoring five goals, in the striker's absence.
  • This will be the second meeting between these clubs this season. The first time, New York ran out 5-2 winners on the back of a Thierry Henry hat trick.
  • Despite being the new kids on the block, the Impact are riding a four-game undefeated streak. Montreal's last loss in MLS was to a late FC Dallas fightback on April 14.
  • New York is the team to beat in the East right now. The Red Bulls have won their last four games, outscoring their opponents 6-2.
  • Despite its commendable league form, Montreal went out of the Canadian Championship, losing 2-0 on aggregate to Toronto FC.
