VAN vs MI Dream11 Prediction | Major League Soccer | Montreal Impact vs Vancouver Whitecaps, Fantasy Team News

VAN vs MI Dream11 Match Preview, Team News, Lineups

It could very well be 3rd straight year where Vancouver Whitecaps’ season ends without the post-season.

For the Whitecaps are sitting outside the playoffs heading into their next game. A huge 13 points separate them from FC Dallas in 7th, considering only six regular-season games remaining, it’s only a matter of time before even the mathematical possibility gets out of sight.

For Montreal Impact, the season still holds significance. The playoffs are very much within their reach. But they have to win games, to remain relevant, and to qualify for the post-season.


Match Details:

The Major League Soccer match will be played between Montreal Impact and Vancouver Whitecaps at Saputo Stadium, in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The ground has a capacity of 20,801.
The game will start at 05:30 AM (IST), on Thursday, August 29.

Montreal Impact Team News:

  • The hosts will be without four first-team players for the clash against Vancouver Whitecaps.
  • Victor Cabrera (arm injury), Daniel Kinumbe (knee injury), Ignacio Piatti (adductor injury) and Anthony Jackson-Hamel (knee injury) will all miss the game.

Possible INs and OUTs of this game:

  • Considering the defensive issues at the back, head-coach Wílmer Cabrera could once against go with Bacary Sagna in the heart of the defense with Jukka Raitala partnering him.
  • Canadian defensive midfielder Samuel Piette is nearing a return and could make his comeback here against Vancouver Whitecaps. The 24-year-old has missed the last five games due to an injury. If he starts, the likeliest player to make way is Ken Krolicki.

Montreal Impact Probable XI:

Bush (GK), Lovitz, Raitala, Sagna, Brault-Guillard, Taider, Piette, Lappalainen, Tabla, Bojan, Urruti

Possible ins or outs of this game:

  • Maxime Crepeau is set to face his old club Montreal Impact in this game.

Likely to score:

  • For Montreal Impact: Saphir Taider, Orji Okwonkwo, Bojan Krkic
  • For Vancouver Whitecaps: Yordy Reyna, Fredy Montero

Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:

Bojan Krkić: Another attempt of him to revive his career. It’s still a mystery what happened to the guy who was once hailed as a young prodigy who could emulate Lionel Messi at Barcelona.

Still, a great talent, and a match-winner on his day.

In MLS this season:

  • Games: 03
  • Goals: 01

Saphir Taider: Leading the goal scoring charts for the team, and that too from the midfield, tells a great deal about the incredible season he is having with the Impact. Unmissable.

  • Minutes: 2188
  • Goals: 09
  • Assists: 05
  • Shots: 57

Fredy Montero: His consistency level doesn’t mirror with Vancouver’s struggles this season. He should be in your Dream11 team, no matter what combination you go with here.

In MLS this season:

  • Games: 26
  • Games started: 21
  • Minutes: 1903
  • Goals: 06

Yordy Reyna: Though the season has been somewhat decent at the personal level, it’s an open secret as well that the 25-year-old has failed to recapture his form of the last season. Regardless, the Peruvian is still one of the team’s best creative player and will be worth considering for the game.
