Montreal Impact are set to face DC United in their next MLS fixture at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex tomorrow.

A hat-trick from Ayo Akinola and a goal from Richie Laryea sealed the deal for Toronto FC. Saphir Taider scored two penalties and Romell Quioto found the net once for Montreal Impact.
DC United, on the other hand, drew against New England Revolution. Adam Buksa's goal for the New England Revolution was cancelled out by a Federico Higuain strike for DC United.

Montreal Impact vs DC United Prediction
Both teams occupy the bottom-half of Group B. Thierry Henry's Montreal Impact are yet to register a win, having lost both their games so far. Former Barcelona forward Bojan is expected to feature and much will be expected of him after a quiet start to his MLS career.
DC United manager Ben Olsen, on the other hand, looks set to start Ola Kamara. The Norwegian was a substitute against the New England Revolution but could be named in the starting XI this time around.
Kamara enjoyed a fruitful spell with LA Galaxy before moving to China. Now back in the MLS, the forward looks set to lead the line for his team.
Prediction: Montreal Impact 1:1 DC United
