Take a look at Montréal’s full roster here.

Team Form

Montréal finished its 2022 regular-season campaign in Fort Lauderdale and took down the Heron’s 3-1 with a goal and an assist from young American, Djordje Mihailovic. The win capped off an impressive run of form as they made a push for the top spot in the East by winning eight of their last 10 games. Despite their win on Decision Day, they fell just two points short of that top spot to Philadelphia Union.

Head-to-Head

Orlando City kicked off the season with a comfortable 2-0 win over CF Montréal following goals from Alexandre Pato, his first for the Club, and Benji Michel. Fortunes would be switched in the reverse fixture in Montréal as the hosts won 4-1 with two goals late in the match.

Rasmussen University Fact

The Orlando-Montréal matchup over the years has created some barnburners on both sides of the ball. With an average of 3.2 goals per game and a fairly even split of results since 2015 this game is bound to be an exciting one.
