VAN vs MI Dream11 : Montreal Impact look to revitalise their season ahead of the final run into the conference encounters
Chasing a spot in the top 7 of the Eastern Conference for what has been an eternity now, for Montreal Impact there couldn’t have been a better encounter to infuse fresh life into their season than today’s clash. The inter-zonal contest sees them face off against bottom placed Western Conference side, Vancouver Whitecaps, an opposition they’ll be quietly confident of defeating today.
Currently on 34 points in the eastern Conference, although Montreal Whitecaps know they’ll be unable to breach the top 7 with a win today given their dwindling goal difference, the side will be able to move level on points with seventh place. It’s a colossal prize for a club whose inconsistency and floundering form has kept it from making massive strides in Major League Soccer, know they’ll look to attain with a pristine showing today.
The side head into today’s clash currently winless in four matches, three of which has ended in defeats while the side were able to salvage the one draw. Elsewhere Vancouver Whitecaps have suffered an ever more horrid time in the league, sitting in the dearth of the Western Conference with just 6 wins, becoming one of the first side to have their season come to an early end.
What will give the side heart though ahead of today’s encounter will be the fact that two of those wins have come in their previous four clashes, momentum the side will be looking to build on when they take on Montreal Impact today. It’s a clash which might be inconsequential for them from the larger point of things but one which could help them showcase their skill set, something we have only been offered glimpses of till now.
Despite falling in their quest of making massive strides with the side unable the snap out of their current impasse, for Montreal Impact, today’s encounter is just the one the side would have been yearning for. They are up against a club who have been trounced 13 times, conceding 48 goals with just 28 in reply and given the consequences for Montreal Impact from this one, expect their attacking facet to pile on the goals in this one.

VAN vs MI Dream11 Goal-Keeper
With their being a necessary need for us to select four players from Vancouver Whitecaps, we have decided to indulge in their goal-keeper as one with the player bound to be one of the highest points amasser for his side today. With 98 saves to his name, Maxime Crepeau is placed third in the ranks of the highest saves, a player who has waged a lone battle despite having a paper thin defence infront of him.
VAN vs MI Dream11 Defenders
If Vancouver Whitecaps have conceded 48 goals, Montreal Impact have been worse, letting slip in a horrendous 52 goals. With the 100 goals slipped in, in between them, these two sides bespeak two shambolic defensive units. It’s a narrative which saw us veer towards selecting only the bare minimum of three requisite defenders in our backline, opting solely for names who’ll contribute to the side’s attacking bits of attempts as well in today’s clash.
We have picked out Vancouver Whitecaps’ CB Derek Cornelius while from the Impacts we have gone in with their leftback, Daniel Lovtiz and Jukka Raitala.
VAN vs MI Dream11 Midfielders
With the 9 goals to his name, Montreal Impact have had to thank Saphir Taider for a majority of their sublime attacking sojourns, seeing us bring in the player instantly into our Dream 11 side. He’s accompanied by both the attacking wide players in the form of Ballou Tabla and Lassi Lappalainen with us envisaging the side mustering up a slew of goals and leaving the opposition in disarray today.
Sameul Piette comes in as well from the side as we spare no expense in choosing viable goal scoring options from the side for this one.
VAN vs MI Dream11 Strikers
Time for us to finally compensate our side with the attacking picks from Vancouver Whitecaps with their attacking duo of Yordy Reyna and Fredy Montero being brought into our Dream 11 outfit. Although the club have managed to score just 28 goals, they are up against a side who are a howler at the back, an opposition these two could easily snare goals against.
Maximiliano Urruti from the opposition wraps up our side for today’s clash.
