Defences are going to put up some solid walls as Kansas cross the border into Canada tonight, says Tobias Gourlay
"Kansas have notched three clean sheets in five away games, but are not prolific themselves"
Montreal Impact v Kansas City
In Finland yesterday, TPS 2 IFK Mariehamn 0 gave us a winning start to our short week.
Today, we're hoping at least one of Montreal Impact and Kansas City will be short on goals as they meet in Canada. Remi Garde's hosts have won their last two MLS games at Saputo Stadium, keeping a clean sheet each time. But those games were against bottom-half outfits. Second-placed Kansas will raise a bigger challenge - to that newly solidified defence and to an attack that had failed to score in either of the two matches before those wins.
Peter Vermes' Kansas are W3-D3-L1 on the road this term. Last time out, they drew 0-0 at Portland. That was a third clean sheet in five games, but they are not prolific themselves away from home, scoring just three times across their last four. With at least one team failing to score in 5/7 Impact home games and 4/5 Kansas away games, we're saying 'No' to Both Teams to Score? at a plump price.
