Montreal vs Inter Miami verdict
Montreal and Inter Miami face a short turnaround from midweek cup wins that saw the hosts reach the final of the Canadian Championship and the visitors the quarter-finals of the US Open Cup. Montreal's 2-0 win over Forge was their fifth consecutive home win with a clean sheet. After back-to-back road defeats against FC Cincinnati and New York Red Bulls, they'll be looking forward to home comforts. Phil Neville's Inter Miami were second best against rivals Orlando City and crumbled late in the game last week, losing 3-1 at home. They have now lost consecutive matches. The concern for Inter here is that they have historically struggled on their travels and are a very streaky team. They have already had winning streaks of two and four and a losing streak of six. The David Beckham-owned franchise have lost five of their last six road games, failing to score in four of them. As potent as they have been at home, Josef Martinez has failed to net on his travels and Luis Campana has scored in just one of six. Our numbers suggest this will be a very tight game, with no guarantee that both or even either team will score, but Inter do look error-prone. We're backing Montreal to pick up another home win and clean sheet by the narrowest of margins.
