Montreal is coming off of a 1-0 loss to Nashville, the second seed in the Eastern Conference. This is a tough part of the schedule for Montreal, as it faced fifth-seed Philadelphia a few weeks back.
Meanwhile, Orlando City is coming off of a disappointing 3-0 loss to Atlanta United. That was the first regular-season loss for the club since July 25, breaking a string of seven consecutive matches to end in a win or draw.
Orlando has scored 33 goals this season and allowed 29. That plus-four goal differential is tied for seventh-best in MLS. Montreal isn't far behind, with a plus-two goal differential.
Despite the difference in the team's records, these teams are fairly even. Montreal has allowed one fewer goal on the season than Orlando City, while Orlando has been slightly better offensively.
Keep an eye on Orlando City midfielder Luís Carlos Almeida da Cunha, who is 10th in the MLS in goals scored. While he hasn't scored a goal since Aug. 7, he's seen an uptick in usage over the past two matches, taking two shots in each game.
