Major League Soccer 2012 Preview: Montreal Impact vs Toronto FC Predictions

Di Vaio set to make debut for Impact. Catch real time updates on your favorite Major League Soccer 2012 Match.

The Montreal Impact will host Toronto FC on Wednesday for the second time this season, but that does not mean that the match will take place under similar circumstances.

Montreal earned a 2-1 win over Toronto at the Olympic Stadium on April 7, but the two sides will square off at the Stade Saputo this time around after the Impact's new stadium opened a week-and-a-half ago.

The Impact have been on fire in their new home, defeating Seattle Sounders FC and the Houston Dynamo by a combined score of 8-3.

Montreal Impact Preview

Montreal's offense seemingly firing on all cylinders, it's a wonder why head coach Jesse Marsch would want to change anything. But when he has the chance to insert a seasoned veteran with loads of international experience into the starting XI to make his MLS debut, the choice is essentially already made.

Italian striker Marco Di Vaio signed with the Impact earlier this season as the club's first-ever Designated Player and he will make his debut in Wednesday's clash with rival Toronto FC.

"It will be emotional for me. For my first game, I hope to play well within the group," Di Vaio told the club's official website. "I've watched the team's last few games, and I feel comfortable with the system. My goal is to do everything I can to help my team win on Wednesday. I've been working really hard these past few weeks to be ready for this match."

Di Vaio has earned a glowing review from his coach despite joining the team just a few weeks ago.

"He's moved himself along fitness wise and he has gotten sharper since he's been here," said Marsch. "I think he will fit in right away with the group on the field.

"Soccer-wise, he is really smart. He's got a great eye around the goal for scoring or setting guys up. Having him here has been good in every way. He gives us a real threat around the goal and a better sense of savvy because of his quality."

Going up against Toronto is the ideal match for Di Vaio to break into the league.

Toronto FC Preview

Toronto operates with the most porous defense in the league, conceding an MLS- high 28 goals through 13 games. In its last two matches, TFC threw away two- goal leads to be denied maximum points in a 3-3 draw with Houston and a 2-2 draw with the New England Revolution.

The poor play from the back has Toronto head coach Paul Mariner calling for more leadership, especially from more experienced players like Richard Eckersley and Ashtone Morgan.

"Richard has played some games in England, so I guess he's got to start to become a leader now," Mariner said. "Ashtone's a Canadian international, he's got to start to become a leader now. Sometimes I think they're a little bit reticent."

Mariner doesn't place all of the blame on the backline though, saying that Toronto needs to defend better as a unit.

Montreal Impact vs Toronto FC Predictions: Montreal 2-0

Montreal Impact has done well on home field with 2 successive wins recently. On the other hand, Toronto FC is bottom of the table in east coast with their limited strength. What's worse. the team has won nothing on home field so far. So Montreal Impact shall excel on home field.

Copa Santander Libertadores 2012 Preview: Boca Juniors vs Corinthians Predictions

The Copa Libertadores finals begin this week with Boca Juniors and Corinthians trying to make history. Catch real time updates on your favorite Major League Soccer 2012 Match.

Boca Juniors Preview

Boca Juniors want to win its seventh title to tie Argentina rival Independiente as the most successful team in Latin America's most important club competition. Corinthians, meanwhile, is out to win its first major international trophy and prove it can be a powerhouse outside of Brazil too.

Boca Juniors enters the final with an experienced team that has been improving as the tournament progresses. Corinthians is coming in backed by one of the competition's top campaigns, which culminated with the elimination of defending champion Santos in the semifinals.

The first match of the two-legged series begins Wednesday in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The return leg is July 4 in Sao Paulo.

The seventh title for Boca Juniors would tie it with Independiente and add to its recent dominance in Latin American soccer.

Independiente's last triumph in the Copa Libertadores happened nearly 30 years ago, in 1984. Boca Juniors, meanwhile, will be trying to win its fifth title in the last 12 years, and the first since 2007. The Argentine giants also won the competition in 2000, '01 and '03.

Boca Juniors will be playing the first leg at its La Bombonera stadium, where it has won its last five matches in this year's Copa Libertadores. The stadium is touted as one of the toughest to play for opponents, with loud fans that usually include former Boca players Carlos Tevez and Diego Maradona.

“The Bombonera (factor) is real, it exists,” Corinthians coach Tite said. “You need to be mature to play there. We need to have the mental strength to do it.”

The only time Boca Juniors didn't win at home this year was when it played Brazil's Fluminense in the group stage, losing 2-1. It then defeated Fluminense 2-0 in Rio de Janeiro, and later eliminated it from the competition in the quarterfinals 2-1 on aggregate.

Boca Juniors was in contention to win the Clausura tournament in Argentina this weekend, but lost its final match on Sunday and finished third after coach Julio Cesar Falcioni used mostly second-stringers because of the Copa Libertadores finals.

Corinthians Preview

Brazilian champion Corinthians also didn't play its top players over the weekend, but it still defeated rival Palmeiras for its first win in the Brazilian league after six rounds, a result that allowed it to leave last-place in the 20-team standings.

Corinthians is Brazil's second most popular club, behind Flamengo, and has five national titles. But it has never had much success internationally. It won the inaugural FIFA Club World Cup in 2000 but after it was invited as the host team.

It got through to the finals this year with a 2-1 aggregate win over Santos, touted as the best team in Brazil thanks to young stars Neymar and Paulo Henrique Ganso. Corinthians won the first leg in Santos then held on to a 1-1 draw at home to reach its first final in the Copa Libertadores, the only significant competition it has never won.

Boca Juniors vs Corinthians Predictions: Corinthians 1-0 Over Boca

Corinthians will be playing their first 1st final at Libertadores. They show a very regular team, with a lot of teamwork and they're still unbeaten. They had good results away in all matches from playoffs and I don't believe it will be diferent this time.Corinthian’s have paid their dues and now,I believe this is the Corinthian’s time to shine.

Euro Cup 2012 Highlights: Balotelli Shows Who’s Boss Italy Shocks Germany

Italian fans gloated about their 2-1 win against Germany in the Euro 2012 semi-final on Thursday, saying they hoped it would help Prime Minister Mario Monti who is locked in a standoff with German Chancellor Angela Merkel over the euro zone's future.

"This shows Germany who's in charge," said Andrea Arces, 20, a student from southern Italy who joined thousands of Italian fans celebrating and waving flags in Rome's Piazza del Popolo.

"Italy is a strong country and this is how we fight back."

Two stunning first half-goals by forward Mario Balotelli steered Italy to victory over favourites Germany and into the final of the European soccer championship where they will meet Spain on Sunday in Kiev.

Supporters in Rome's squares and parks lit coloured flares, chanted in unison and shouted "Grazie Balotelli" after the final whistle blew, and car horns were beeping well into the night.

Monti also faces a showdown with Germany at a two-day European Union summit in Brussels and has promised to press hard for emergency action to lower soaring Italian borrowing costs, a proposal that Merkel has rebuffed so far.

As they grapple with the effects of a German-led European austerity drive that has led to higher taxes, pension reform and spending cuts in the euro zone's third largest economy, Italians have become increasingly embittered.

While Germany's economy has powered ahead of its peers, Italy's has fallen deep into recession in 2012 as rising unemployment and stagnant wage growth fuels a slump in domestic demand.

But the Azzurri's victory over Germany, who were missing their "lucky charm" Merkel in the crowd of the Warsaw stadium, has at least given Italians one thing to smile about.

"This game shows that Italy is good at something," said 19 -year-old student Martina Capo, who was draped in an Italian flag. "There are many things that are positive about Italy and this is one of them," she said.

Others feared the match might reinforce Germany's cool stance towards Italy's proposals.

"They're never going to give us any euro bonds after that," said 44-year-old Paolo Brusca, who watched the game in a park in Rome with his father.

Euro Cup 2012 Highlights: Spain Makes A Statement 4-0 Victory Over Italy

Spain took a few minutes at the end of its breathtaking Euro 2012 triumph to prove it is human, after spending the previous 90 showing why, in soccer terms at least, it is anything but.

A 4-0 victory over Italy on Sunday clinched an unprecedented third straight major tournament success for the majestic Spanish, many of whom brought their young children onto the field at the final whistle to celebrate with them. It was a touching gesture and spawned lovely scenes of childlike exuberance, with the kids hugging and playing excitedly with their delighted fathers.

Fernando Torres enjoys Spain's celebration with his kids Nora and Leo. (Getty Images)Yet for the previous couple of hours, those smiling adult faces in red uniforms had shown sporting ruthlessness of the highest order to silence a growing band of critics with a display of soccer magnificence.

All the accusations of boring play were washed away at the Olympic Stadium in Kiev as Italy, having shown so much spirit and resilience in reaching the final, were simply picked apart with a thousand cuts.

Just as it had all tournament long, Spain controlled the ball, dominated midfield and strung together pass after pass. This time, though, the old attacking intent was in place again after seemingly disappearing during the early part of the tournament.

David Silva got the first goal after only 14 minutes. His header came at the end of an outstanding move that saw Cesc Fabregas cut the ball back from the touchline for a goal of technical excellence. From that point on, it was all one-way traffic.

Spain's second goal was perhaps even better. Left back Jordi Alba charged nearly the full length of the field to collect a pinpoint pass and deliver a cool-headed finish.

When an injury to Italy’s Thiago Motta forced him from the field – after his side had already used all three allocated substitutes – Spain was able to run riot even more. Late replacements Fernando Torres and Juan Mata both got on the scoresheet to cap off a spectacular display and send the discussions of "greatest team ever" into overdrive.

Comparing teams from different generations is always a fool's errand, but this Spain side fully deserves its place at the very forefront of the conversation. It is incredible to think that its success at Euro 2008 ended a drought of 46 years since the nation’s previous major success. Now it has a pair of Euro titles with a World Cup sandwiched in between.

International soccer has never been more deep or diverse, but Spain makes the opposition look second-rate, seemingly at will. In 10 straight knockout games in tournaments, the Spanish have not conceded a single goal and yielded just one in its six matches at Euro 2012.

And to think that people had started to doubt them. Going into the competition, it was felt that the supposed rift between the rival players of Real Madrid and Barcelona would be destructive. Speculation also focused on Spain's dwindling motivation after so much former glory.

Not so. Silva, Manchester City's star playmaker, was the only player not from Madrid or Barca to start the final for Spain. Moreover, this was as seamless a blend of teamwork as you could ever wish to see.

Some key members of the team, such as goalkeeper Iker Casillas and midfield general Xavi, are not getting any younger, and a few fresh legs might be needed for the World Cup in 2014. But this is not a team that is weakening with age or one that is even close to the end of its road. No, it is one that has figured out the blueprint for winning on the biggest stages of all and is enjoying putting it in place.

The 1-0 wins over Germany in the Euro 2008 and the Netherlands at the World Cup were wars of attrition – fierce battles that had to be survived not seized. Sunday's victory, instead, was a festival – a celebration of a truly great team and a dynasty that shows no sign of ending.

They are currently 5th in the Major League Soccer and we are expecting them to score 1.50 goals in this game. Their current ELO rating is 1497.4 compared to 1590.3 10 matches ago. They are 4-4 over/under 2.5 goals away and 4-6 in their last 10 away games.

Overall history (H2H) is showing 1-0-0 to Montreal Impact since 2012 and 1-0-0 the past 3 years.

Montreal Impact vs Sporting KC Predictions: Montreal over Kansas 2-1

In their last meeting on May 5,2012 Kansas suffered a 2-0 loss at home to the impact. I see this being the same type of outcome with the Impact taking this. Montreal will be well rested and also I expect them to take control on the offense.

Major League Soccer 2012 Preview: San Jose Earthquakes vs Portland Timbers Predictions

Western Conference Strongmen San Jose Earthquakes meet the Portland Timbers at the Jeld-Wen Field on July 3. Catch real time updates on your favorite Major League Soccer 2012 Match.

San Jose Earthquakes Preview

SJ is currently on the top of the Western Conference list with eleven wins, three loses and three draws tallying a total of 36 points, four points ahead of Western second placers, Real Salt Lake. Winning the previous three matches in a row including a 4-3 victory against the Los Angeles Galaxy, the Earthquakes are on fire and are gearing up for their next up-coming match against Portland who are currently placed at number 8 in the Western Conference. The Earthquakes’ game against Los Angeles is now considered one of the greatest in the history of the MLS. MLS Golden Boot leader Chris Wondolowski, whose back heel goal gave the Quakes the lead during that game is one of the team’s driving players.

However, the impending threat of fatigue which can result in injuries for the players is looming. The Timbers, although faced with a tough task, might just be able to bank on this probability.

Portland Timbers Preview

Ranked at number 8 within the Western Conference and having 20 lesser points than the San Jose Earthquakes who, by the way, are currently the number 1 team in the West, Portland (W-4,L-7,T-4) definitely has a tough challenge to take on this Tuesday when they go against the San Jose Earthquakes(W-11,L-3,T-3). One advantage however falls to the Timbers’ side, the game will be played at the Jeld-Wen Field, Portland’s home turf.

The Timbers were absolutely annihilated by the Colorado Rapids during their match last June 30th but that was on the road. Home turf might be an advantage for Portland and they need to identify and exploit SJ’s weaknesses on this coming match.

"If we don't get points in this game, we're in a really bad spot," Timbers’ goalkeeper Troy Perkins said. "We've got to keep pushing and keep pressing."

San Jose Earthquakes vs Portland Timbers Predictions: 3-0

The Earthquakes have a powerful attack as was proven during their last match against the Galaxy. Unless the Portland Timbers adjust their defenses and strengthen their offense, the team does not stand a chance against the red-hot Earthquakes, home turf or not.

Betting Tips San Jose Earthquakes vs Portland Timbers: Earthquakes wins by 1.39%

Major League Soccer 2012 Preview: Houston Dynamo vs Chicago Fire Predictions

The Dynamos meet Fire at Houston’s BBVA Compass Stadium on July 3. Catch real time updates on your favorite Major League Soccer 2012 Match.

Houston Dynamo Preview

After a 2-1 victory against the Philadelphia Union on the 30th of June, Houston Dynamo is back for another match-up, this time against the Chicago Fire. The last match that the Dynamos had against Chicago was in April 15 of 2012 where the game ended in a draw of 1-1. Currently, Houston ranks at number five in the Eastern Conference with 6 wins 5 loses and 5 draws with a total of 23 points. Oddly enough they rank just below Chicago Fire who has two more winning games ahead of Union but with the same amount of defeats. The venue will be Houston’s home turf and the team has not lost a game at home this season.

Houston, with a probable 4-4-2 line-up however, needs to strengthen their attack against Chicago’s strong defense. Chicago has 4 more points ahead of Houston and has won three games in a row. Plus Chicago’s unpredictability as a team will definitely make it hard for the Dynamo.

Chicago Fire Preview

Chicago Fire has been untouchable for the previous three games in a row including one with the Eastern Conference top team, New York Red Bulls where they easily achieved a 3-1 victory. During their last match-up, Chicagomanaged a 1-0 road victory at Sporting Kansas City on last Friday when Marco Pappa grabbed the game's only goal, and Sean Johnson made several outstanding saves to hold the lead.

Chicago needs to maintain their defense against Houston and tone up their attack. Things are looking more favourable on Chicago’s side but both teams seem to be at equal considering their five previous matches head to head with other each team has one win and three draws.

Houston Dynamo vs Chicago Fire Predictions: Draw 1-1

As mentioned above, both teams have met five times in the past Chicago has won once, Houston once, and the rest are draws. This keeps both teams at equal pace. Although Chicago is one rank higher, only four points and two games are the differential. This match-up seems even in the eyes of many.

Betting Tips Houston Dynamo vs Chicago Fire: Houston wins by 1.46%

Major League Soccer 2012 Preview: Montreal Impact vs Columbus Crew Predictions

A lot has changed since the Andy Gruenebaum and the Crew shutout the Montreal Impact in Columbus back on March 24, but the team will carry the confidence from that victory into this weekend's match in Montreal.

"We can't really take much (from March 24) It's a totally different team," the Crew 'keeper explained. "We have a little confidence. They're struggling, they're going to come out flying at home. They're a dangerous team. Our back is going to be against the wall a little bit."

"We've got to do the things we did well during that match," midfielder Eddie Gaven added. "We came out strong and had a very good start to that game. We played really good defense and didn't give up any goals, which is always big. It's going to be very important on the road to keep things tight in the back. Hopefully we can build off some of the things we did well (on March 24) and do the same thing (in Montreal)."

Montreal Impact vs Columbus Crew Predictions: 1-1 Draw

If it weren’t for the injuries of Columbus I would have it 2-1 for the Crew. But, with the combination of injuries and the poor play of Montreal this goes down as a tie.

Major League Soccer 2012 Preview: Houston Dynamo vs Washington DC United Predictions

As the Houston Dynamo look to kick off their second-half push, the club is looking to strike a long sought-after balance between attack and defense.

Throughout the first half of the season, the Dynamo have been strong in either defense or attack, but have struggled to put together complete performances on a consistent basis. Houston have pitched six shutouts in 2012, but have scored just three goals in those matches. Conversely, in games where Houston have scored two or more goals, the club has a record of 2-2-3, giving up 16 goals in the process. A recent shift in formation has translated into back-to-back clean sheets for the Dynamo, who are on a shutout streak that currently stands at 223 minutes. Now the goal is to build on the offensive side of the ball to complement their renewed defensive form.

“We know we’re not exactly lighting the scoreboard up, but we were unbeaten last week [0-0 tie at Sporting] and that’s a positive,” Houston head coach Dominic Kinnear

Previews Match Houston Dynamo vs Washington DC United

Houston Dynamo vs Washington DC United Predictions: 2-1 United over Houston

San Jose is simply the most dominant offensive team in Major League Soccer.Their 36 goals in 19 matches equals out to 1.89 per match which is the best in the league. Another factor is that in over fifty percent of their matches, they have scored multiple goals and only twice this season have they been held without scoring a goal, and perhaps the most impressive thing is their +16 goal differential over the last 30 minutes of matches where they have scored 22 goals and allowed just 6.

Colorado Rapids vs FC Dallas Predictions: Colorado Rapids win 1-0

This prediction is in all its essence, very tentative. Looking at the circumstances from different angles, both teams have shown an equal build-up in strength. What else should bottom teams do? They can’t stay where they currently are and expect to move forward, for one, Dallas is trying hard to avoid its first five game losing streak. But Dallas has demonstrated an improvement in its defences and putting de Guzman in the roster might add to their power of attack. But records all point to the Rapids as the favourite and it’s really hard to avoid numbers and follow one’s personal observation. Numbers have shown that Colorado has maintained their consistency better than Dallas.

Colorado Rapids vs FC Dallas Betting Odds and Tips:

Colorado Rapids Fire: 1.86 - 1.53 - 65.03%
