Montreal have won both previous home encounters with Inter Miami and can continue that trend at Stade Saputo this weekend.
The Impact are in fine form, picking up 10 points from the last 12 available following Wednesday’s dramatic 2-1 victory at Columbus.
We’re going with 2.2 for Wilfried Nancy’s side to win and over 2.5 goals again as our first CF Montreal vs Inter Miami prediction.
CF Montreal Odds
Montreal are third in the Eastern Conference, 10 points and five places above Miami, after finishing strongly to edge out the Crew.
Le CFMTL fell behind in the 14th minute when Lucas Zelarayan’s deflected shot deceived Sebastian Breza and settled in the bottom corner.
Breza then did well to save a close-range effort from Cucho Hernandez before the Colombian striker fired a thunderous shot against the post.
At the other end, Kei Kamara missed a couple of decent chances but made amends by leaping high above the defenders and powerfully heading in a corner on 88 minutes.
Montreal weren’t happy just to salvage a point, though, and Kamara had another header saved before Joel Waterman did well to control a floated ball into the box and slot in a stoppage-time decider.
After a match which was interrupted by thunderstorms, Nancy paid tribute to recently departed assistant Jason Di Tullio.
“I was emotional after this win because we represented him,” declared the head coach.
“Whether we are at home or away, this is how we play. We have values that are in that spirit and that’s what we demonstrated.”
The Impact have now conceded in five of their last six victories, though, so CF Montreal vs Inter Miami odds.
Inter Miami Odds
Miami are just outside the play-off places after following up a 4-4 home draw with Cincinnati by winning 1-0 at San Jose in midweek.
The Herons went ahead early on at Avaya Stadium when Jean Mota struck a sweet left-foot half-volley from the edge of the area into the top corner.
Inter were well on top as Leonardo Campana and Gonzalo Higuain had shots saved before an Ariel Lassiter effort was headed off the line.
A late Emerson Rodriguez goal was ruled out for offside but Miami had done enough to secure a deserved success.
However, that triumph was marred by injuries to star strikers Campana and Higuain, who have scored 15 of this season’s 27 goals.
Head coach Phil Neville said: “We’ve invested in the squad and we’ve got plenty of players that can come in, that are ready to play, that want to play, that now have the opportunity to play.”
Inter’s overall away record is poor, though, and this will be a tough test at the end of a week which has involved so much travelling.
Let’s add 4.6 for a home win by exactly two goals to our CF Montreal vs Inter Miami betting tips.
