Montreal Impact have struggled to get results in the MLS in recent weeks and eventually missed the playoff train. They will now play their final match of the season at home, where they will host the NY Red Bulls on Sunday. The Red Bulls have been solid lately and will now look for another win.
The NY Red Bulls (14-13-6) are coming into this match after a goal-less draw at home against DC United, in a match where they were better than their opponents. They are now undefeated in their last three (2-0-1), keeping three clean sheets in the process. The Red Bulls are 5th in the Eastern Conference with 48 points, one behind DC United, one ahead of Toronto and three ahead of New England. They have not done bad on the road so far (5-8-3) but have won just two of their last five (2-3-0).
Montreal Impact (11-17-5) lost every bit of playoff hope in their last match, where they split the points in a 1-1 draw at home against Atlanta United. That means that they are without a win in their last four MLS matches (0-3-1) but did capture the Canadian Championship in-between. Montreal are now 9th in the Eastern Conference with 38 points, scoring 44 goals and conceding 60 so far. They have not been anything special at home either (7-6-3), winning just one of their last five (1-2-2).
