TRT Vs MI Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Toronto and Montreal Impact take on each other for the second time running in the Eastern Conference today
Familiar with each other after having locked heads only last week, when Toronto and Montreal Impact clash heads once again in the Eastern Conference today, we are set to be immersed in a closely contested affair. This fixture between the two sides promises to be competed on the same lines as the foregone skirmish, one which alluded towards the narrative of a humdinger being peddled out for today’s matchup.
That gruelling encounter between the two transpired in exactly the manner many had touted it would. The Conference leaders were made to sweat it out but the 1-0 win at the end of the day was a fair result one which paid testament to why Toronto find themselves occupying top spot.
With three wins on the spin, Toronto find themselves as the only club in the Eastern Conference of MLS 2020-21 to remain unbeaten. Their consistency and flawless brand of football sees them hold a one point lead in the pinnacles of the points tally, one the club will be ardently trying to protect today.
Where they are going from strength to strength, Montreal Impact have completely lost steam. The side’s foregone defeat was its third in five matches, results which have seen the side plummet all the way down to 7th spot.
On a downtick, this clash is a foregone conclusion for Montreal Impact. They are up against a ruthless juggernaut, a side who they are bound to fall to a second defeat against in the space of a week.

TRT Vs MI Dream11 Picks
Clement Diop was the only reason Montreal Impact were able to keep their opponents at bay the last time these two sides took on each other. With save after save, his resillinace reverberated across the side’s defence to raise the level of the defensive display peddled out by the side on the day.
Their cleansheet the last time these two went locking heads saw Toronto make it four cleansheets on the spin. This is a side which is currently the most exquisite side defensively in the conference, a side refusing to give any kind of leeway to its oppositions.
Their compact and sound brand of defending to bring to fruition those cleansheets made it prudent of us to opt for a three man defensive ambit from the club. It sees us subject ourselves to the pick of Auro, Chris Mavinga and Justin Morrow for the upcoming showdown.
Where the defence has overhauled itself across the course of the last two weeks, the attack has been at its tantalising best since the onset of the season for the conference leaders. With 14 goals to their name, Toronto have scored the second highest goals in the Eastern Conference to make massive headway and find themselves in top spot.
It’s a resplendent contingent, one which has been spearheaded by two goal man Pablo Piatti to see him become the first pick from the club. Two assist man Jonathan Osorio links up with him with the two moving in tandem to make for an intoxicating brew for the side.
Where they have been the custodians of attack, Michael Bradley has bolstered the side’s defence with his bevy of tackles and blocks in the middle of the midfield. Montreal Impact sees us opt for Saphir Taider with his two assists coming owing to his ability to keep the ball moving quickly in the midfield.
While traversing past a defence which has kept four cleansheets is going to be a daunting task for Montreal Impact, as long as they have this partnership at their disposal, the club can pile on the goals today. Top scorer Maximiliano Urruti and Romell Quioto have hit five goals in between them, two names who make for a succulent attacking duo.
Elsewhere, with the two goals and two assists, Alejandro Pozuelo was always going to be an instant pick for us from the table toppers.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Having played a hand in four goals for his club, Alejandro will captain our side while Piatti is the vice-captain.
