Montreal will play hosts to Atlanta United in Canada this weekend with the the Five Stripes sitting inside the playoff spots right now with the home outfit sitting outside of the top eight after a topsy-turvy run of form in recent weeks.
Montreal struggled tremendously when the MLS started back in February and would win just one game in the first 10. After a 1-0 loss to New York City, they now sit in ninth with them defeating second-placed Eastern Conference side, Nashville, around three weeks ago. The club also drew 0-0 with Charlotte in this period and now sit behind Atlanta by six points who sit seventh.
The Five Stripes have dropped down from fifth to seventh in the past few weeks with them now losing five times and winning eight games after a fantastic 2-0 victory against Philadelphia Union in the last outing. The club did, however, lose 4-0 to New York Red Bulls two weeks back and they have also drawn with Los Angeles FC and New York City in the past month after also beating D.C. United.
Georgios Giakoumakis to score is boosted up to 5/2 in this game - Giakoumakis is Atlanta's top goal scorer (10) and the joint third highest MLS scorer this season.
Montreal have beaten Atlanta 2-1 twice in the last three head-to-head matches between these two sides and Montreal to win 2-1 once again is at 10/1. 2+ shots on target each team in each half is also boosted to 11/2 in this match with Georgios Giakoumakis to score first and Either Atlanta Utd 2-1 or Atlanta Utd 3-1 up at 40/1.
Atlanta is priced at 9/5 just to win and Montreal is at 13/10 to bag all three points too in what is the toughest game to call in MLS this weekend according to the odds.
