Game 1 of Preseason: Montreal Impact vs Sporting Kansas City - Preview , LiveStream

At 3PM EST, the Montreal Impact kick off its preseason festivities against Sporting Kansas City. Watch the game here .

PreSeason is used for different purposes for different teams. Even under a new head coach, most of the players have played and practiced together. The core of the team is pre-established but the tactical aspect is still important with a new coach that will implement the club's vision.

Impact head coach Marco Schällibaum is clear about a tactical focus with confidence on the players at his disposition

The intensity will definitely increase a level as it will be the first game of camp," "We have worked hard for the last three weeks, so we are hoping to have a good showing. We will be focusing on the tactical side of the game as we have the type of players for that system.

With 1 trialist, 1 player on loan and a few younger players, a few points to look at as we watch the game

1) If a convincing performance is delivered , will Hassoun Camara play in front of the defence the whole season?

2) Can Valentin and Iapichino bring that speed on the sides? With and Without the Ball?

3) Will the chemistry of the previous season kick-off where it left off?

Pascal Milano , of La Presse, shares a potential lineup thatwe will most probably see today.

Possible Starting XI

Troy Perkins ; Zarek Valentin - Alessandro Nesta - Matteo Ferrari - Dennis Iapichino ; Hassoun Camara ; Patrice Bernier - Felipe Martins - Sanna Nyassi - Davy Arnaud ; Marco Di Vaio
