Why CF Montréal Must Beat Toronto FC This Week in MLS Play

A must win!!!

MLS: CF Montreal at Toronto FC Dan Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports

A must win game this Satuday in MLS for CF Montréal! As they reel from two straight defeats, winning this one vs a bitter rival and one who in the last matchup, crushed them 4-0, the boys have to be extra juiced for this one!

Two reasons the team needs this win are first, a return to good play. MTL can and should win vs this side as the three DP’s that are rumored to join will not play yet. So, getting a nice and maybe even one sided victory could d wonders for MTL as Toronto will load up after with Lorenzo Insigne, Bernardeschi and Belotti. Only Insigne is confirmed, so should they add those other two, MTL will need to show they can hang.

Second, is to maintain pace with the top teams in the East. Even with a win the highest MTL can go is stay right where they are in fourth. A win would out them just a point back of top three. Rivalries cause tense games and this being a must win raises the stakes as MTL look to place high enough to host a game in the Playoffs.

It’s why this game is important. Especially without Djordje as he still is not 100%. MTL has to come out with energy and be ready to win at nearly all costs.

We’ll see if they can respond.
