MLS Preview: Montreal Impact - Houston Dynamo

MLS Preview: Montreal Impact - Houston Dynamo

Patrick McDermott

East-leading Montreal welcomes Houston, a team that could put itself in a contender's position with a win in Quebec.

  PROBABLE LINEUPS
Montreal Impact (4-2-3-1): Perkins; Camara, Nesta, Ferrari, Iapchino; Warner, Bernier; Mapp, Martins, Nyassi; Di Vaio.

INJURY REPORT

OUT: Nelson Rivas (L knee surgery), Maxim Tissot (toe fracture), Davy Arnaud (concussion-like symptoms)
 
Houston Dynamo (4-4-2): Hall; Sarkodie, Clark, Boswell, Ashe; Moffatt, Creavalle, Camargo, Driver; Barnes, Bruin.

INJURY REPORT

OUT: Anthony Arena (R ankle sprain), Calen Carr (L knee)

  DID YOU KNOW?
  • Montreal currently sits in first place in the Eastern Conference with the most points (26) despite having played the fewest matches (13).
  • Houston is fourth in the East, with 22 points from 14 games. A win would see the Dynamo in third, moving ahead of Philadelphia, while winning and scoring four or more goals would catapault them into second place.
  • Montreal hitman Marco Di Vaio leads Major League Soccer in shots on goal (23) and is second in goals scored, with nine.
  • Houston will be missing two of its most impoartant players as they face off in World Cup qualifying. Oscar Boniek Garcia is with Honduras on Tuesday night, and Brad Davis is with the U.S. squad.
  • These teams split their three meetings last year. Montreal won at home 4-2 before the Dynamo took a 3-0 result in Houston. The final meeting, at BBVA Compass stadium, finished 1-1.
