With only five games to play in the regular season, the Montreal Impact (12-14-3) will continue to fight for a playoff spot as it visits the Chicago Fire (14-8-5) on Saturday, at 8:30pm (ET), at Toyota Park in Bridgeview Illinois. The game will be broadcast live on TVA sports and is available on illico web, illico mobile and MLS Live.
The Impact currently sits in 7th spot with 39 points, three points only from a playoff spot. Chicago is second in the Eastern conference with 47 points. The Fire is 5-1 in its last six games, and has won its last five games at home, with a record of 9-2-2 overall at Toyota Park.
This will be the second and final matchup of the season between these two clubs. The Impact played the Fire way back on March 27 in its home opener at Olympic Stadium. Impact captain Davy Arnaud scored the club’s first ever goal in MLS, while Dominic Oduro equalized for the Fire.
Nyassi set to return to starting lineup
No one has made an impact off the bench for Montreal this season quite like Sanna Nyassi. This Saturday, though, for the first time in two months, he will likely get the chance to make one right from the start.
Intensity remains high
Decreasing the tempo during a two-week break? Not a chance, according to Montreal Impact head coach Jesse Marsch.
