MLS Preview: Montreal Impact - Sporting Kansas City

MLS Preview: Montreal Impact - Sporting Kansas City

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

The last time Montreal squared off against Kansas City, the result was a 4-0 thrashing by Sporting. The Impact will hope to exact some revenge at home on Saturday.

Payback will be on the minds of the Montreal Impact when they play host to Sporting Kansas City at Stade Saputo on Saturday afternoon.

Last month, the Impact were pummeled 4-0 by SKC at Sporting Park thanks to a brace by Dominic Dwyer, a rare goal by defender Aurelien Collin and an own goal by Montreal's Calum Mallace. It all added up to a miserable day for the Quebec side, which will now look to exact a measure of revenge on home turf.

Unfortunately for the Impact, recent form will not be on their side. They're fresh off a humiliating midweek loss to NASL side FC Edmonton in the Canadian Championship, and Montreal hasn't fared much better in the league.

With just one win in eight MLS matches, Montreal currently sits tied with the Chicago Fire for last place in the Eastern Conference. At the other end of the table, Sporting tops the conference and has four wins from the past six matches.

With a win and some other favorable results, Kansas City could take full control of the East. While SKC leads the conference because of tiebreakers, it's one of four teams on 14 points. The other clubs -- Houston, New England, and New York -- have all played more games than Sporting, so a positive result Saturday for Peter Vermes' squad could give it an early stranglehold in the conference title race.
