New England Revolution will host Montreal Impact in an MLS Eastern Conference matchup on Wednesday. The hosts have won just one of their last five games and are coming off a goalless draw against NYCFC as they take on Thierry Henry's men at the Gillette Stadium.
Montreal Impact, on the other hand, started off on a high note against Philadelphia Union on Sunday. Romell Quioto scored in the fifth minute of the game before getting sent off 10 minutes later for elbowing Mark McKenzie in the face, causing Impact to play the rest of the game with 10 men.
After that, there was no stopping Philadelphia Union and they scored four goals to seal a comfortable victory and keep within arm's length of Eastern Conference leaders Columbus Crew.
New England Revolution weren't without their chances in their goalless draw against NYCFC but opposition goalkeeper Sean Johnson, who is in quite remarkable form, made sure the net wasn't rustled. New England Revolution can move to sixth place ahead of their opposition Montreal Impact with a win on Wedneday.
