Montreal and Nashville square off at the Saputo Stadium on Saturday.

Major League Soccer returns with a fresh set of fixtures, as CF Montreal and Nashville square off at the Saputo Stadium on Saturday (May 25). While the Boys in Gold appear to have hit their stride in recent weeks, the hosts head into the weekend on a run of three defeats.

Montreal suffered a quarterfinal exit from the Canadian Championship on Wednesday, as they fell to a shock 2-1 loss to Canadian Premier League side Forge FC at home.

Laurent Courtois’ men have lost four games on the spin and are winless in eight games across competitions since a 2-1 victory over FC Cincinnati on April 14. With 12 points from 13 games, Montreal are 13th in the Eastern Conference, three points and two places below Nashville.

The visitors were denied consecutive wins for the first time this season last time out, as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Atlanta United at Geodis Park. With that result, Rumbani Munthali’s men have gone unbeaten in four home games, winning two, since a 2-1 loss to Philadelphia Union in April.
