MLS Preview: New York Red Bulls - Montreal Impact

Rob Tringali/New York Red Bulls

  DID YOU KNOW?
  • This will be the third meeting between these two sides this season. Montreal won 1-0 at Stade Saputo on March 23, while New York took the spoils with a 2-1 victory at Red Bull Arena on May 8.
  • Impact striker Marco Di Vaio is a one-man statistics machine. The Italy veteran leads Major League Soccer in goals (11), shots (64), and shots on goal (34).
  • New York striker Thierry Henry was named to the MLS All-Star Fan XI. Di Vaio is also in the All-Star squad, thanks to a new mechanism involving the number of goals scored using his virtual self on FIFA 13.
  • Montreal has been flagged for offside 65 times this season, the most in MLS.
  • Despite lofty positions at first in the East (Montreal) and third (New York), each of these teams can lay claim to just one win from their last five.
