After a dissapointing 2-2 tie at San Jose, the Montreal Impact come to Harrison NJ to face the New York Red Bulls for a chance to claim or lose the Eastern Conference crown, early in May. With three games on hand over the Red Bulls, the Montreal Impact does not have the pressure to absolutely win.
But the winning mentality instilled by the coaching staff will be key to taking at least 1 point back home. Its yet another reshuffled lineup with the absences of Davy Arnaud and Alessandro Nesta as both did not make the trip to NYC. It will also be the first time that Les Bleus de Montreal will potentially face Thierry Henry, Tim Cahill and Jamison Olave at the same time.
