New York Red Bulls v. Montreal Impact – Preview – MLS Week 2

Where: Montreal’s Olympic Stadium – note the nickname of this place is ‘The Big O”

When: Saturday March 12th at 4pm EST

What: RBNY Canadian revenge tour after last week’s disappointing loss to Toronto + Montreal’s quest to beat RBNY for the first time in 6 matches

Who (to watch): 

Ignacio “Nacho” Piatti: Mr Piatti had himself a game last week against Vancouver. 2 goals, 1 assist and he managed to nip Higuain’s bike for Goal of the Week. You can get a good idea of what the RBNY defense will be in for with Ignacio watching the below video. The Nacho Man is direct, quick, and an intelligent passer with a striker’s instinct in the box.

Dominic Oduro: another graduate from the Kei Kamara school of hair design. Oduro has the need for speed. He’ll run fast, flick the ball by you, then run even faster.

Felipe/Dax/Lloyd: the New York Red Bull midfield has the quality to take this game over and make this a no contest. Lloyd has goals in him and will be looking to make up for a couple misses in Week 1.

Gideon Baah: all eyes on Baah once again. First week it was the Atomic Ant, this time around it will be the Nacho Man fresh off a Week 1 Goal of the Week honor.

Bradley Wright-Phillips: one half of the Brothers Phillips turns 31 on game day. Big plate of poutine on tap for a birthday goal

Keys To The Game:

  • if you’re RBNY keep yourself away from Cafe Cleopatra’s
