- This is the first-ever meeting between these two teams. However, there is already a strong link, as Impact coach Jesse Marsch is a former captain of Chivas USA.
- These teams have identical records: 15 points from 14 games. For Montreal that means eighth place in the East. The Goats are sixth in the West.
- Chivas USA has only won in the Home Depot Center once this season. On Saturday it lost 3-0 to Real Salt Lake, ending a four-game unbeaten streak. It was the sixth time this season the Goats have been shut out.
- On the same day Montreal opened Saputo Stadium with an impressive 4-1 win over the Seattle Sounders with Patrice Bernier assisting three.
