Montreal have been really uninspired in recent weeks and have lost four in a row without even scoring. They will now look to get back on track when they will play host to Houston on Saturday. Houston saw their undefeated streak come to an end on Wednesday, when they suffered a loss on the road against Real Salt Lake.
Montreal (3-10-0) have had severe problems in scoring lately, as they have now failed to score in each of their last four, losing all matches in the process. They actually create a lot of scoring chances, but they lack the firepower up front in order to convert those chances to goals. Montreal are now sitting at the 10th spot of the Eastern Conference with 9 points, having lost ten of their thirteen matches so far. They haven’t had much luck at home either (2-3-0), where they have only kept a single clean sheet.
Houston (5-4-3) saw their undefeated streak come to an end on Wednesday when they were hosted by Real Salt Lake. They have now failed to keep a clean sheet in each of their last eleven matches, as they have actually kept just one in the premiere against Vancouver. Houston are now sitting 6th spot of the Western Conference with 18 points, having scored 27 goals against 20 conceded. They haven’t been anything special on the road so far (1-2-3), but there have been goals from both sides and at least Over 2.5 Goals in all their away matches so far.
