The Impact is undefeated in its last three games (2-0-1), including a 0-0 draw with the Union in Philadelphia last weekend. In that draw on the road, goalkeeper Troy Perkins earned his eighth shutout of the season.
Perkins is quietly having another solid season. He’s tied for second in MLS with 12 wins and third with 83 saves.
Striker Marco Di Vaio still leads the league in scoring with 15 goals, one more than Camilo from Vancouver and Mike Magee from Chicago.
Midfielder and DP Hernán Bernardello, who will miss four to six weeks with a sprained left ankle, and defender Adrian Lopez, who suffered a knee injury in training midweek, will not be available.
Impact head coach Marco Schällibaum returns to the bench after serving a two game suspension following an incident during his team’s 2-1 over D.C. United at Stade Saputo on August 3.
