MLS Preview: CF Montreal Impact (11-8-3) at Columbus Crew SC (7-5-9)

Including playoffs, the Crew have won 10 of their 14 home matches against CF Montréal (D2 L2). The Crew’s 71.4%-win rate at home against Montreal is their second best at home against an opponent they’ve hosted 10 or more times in MLS (.750 vs. RSL – P12 W9 D1 L2).

The Crew are unbeaten in nine straight matches (W4 D5), the longest active streak in the league, following a scoreless draw against New England on July 23.

CF Montréal has won five of its last eight away matches (D1 L2), including a 2-1 victory at D.C. United in its last road match on July 23 after going winless in its first three on the road this season (D1 L2). The five away wins are the most in a single regular season in the club’s MLS history.

Lucas Zelarayán has been involved in seven of the Crew’s last eight MLS goals (1 goal, 6 assists), including each of the last four. Since he joined the Crew in 2020, the team has a record of W20 D5 L4 in matches in which he Zelarayán contributes to at least one goal.

CF Montréal held NYCFC to two shots in the scoreless draw between the sides on Saturday, just the fifth time Montreal has allowed two or fewer shots in a match in its MLS history. Neither shot hit the target, marking the fifth time Montreal has held an opponent without a shot on target.
