Also, MON keep finding ways to win, having secured 12 victories in their last 20 meetings is astonishing this season. They currently stand second in the League, with 52 points for a total of 0 wins, 0 losses and 0 draws.
MON have won seven fixtures, drawn two games, and lost five meetings of their 14 League matches at home this season.
A victory for Montréal would put them on 55 points.
Columbus Crew’s campaign so far has seen them accrue 40 points this season
With the memory of their last match, doubtless on their minds, a (0-0) draw against Chicago Fire, Columbus will be keen to improve on that result in this game.
Also, a draw statistic of nine in 15 meetings is not all bad, but unfortunately will not bring the success Caleb Porter’s men wishes for ultimately. With 40 points, they currently sit sixth in the League. The breakdown for the team’s record is 0 wins, 0 losses and 0 draws.
Columbus’ away record is remarkable and poses a significant threat to MON. In the 13 games they’ve played on the road this season, they have so far won three matches, drawn eight meetings, and lost two games.
Columbus Crew will have 43 points if they manage to secure a victory.
