Micheal Azira

Just before falling to New York City FC, Micheal Azira’s Montreal Impact had won two games on the trot – defeating Chicago Fire and New England Revolution in the Major Soccer League.

On Wednesday, they return to the fray seeking to revive their winning trend when they visit the New York Red Bulls.

The Impact travel after recently claiming their first away league win to-nil since June 2018.

New York Red Bulls (NYRB) as well have the chance to make it three successive MLS home wins, but their last two victories here have been hard-fought ones, with NYRB winning one half to-nil but failing to win the other in each.

Azira’s chances of starting are high after playing out nearly all games of his side this season.

After action mid-week, Azira and colleagues will leave New York to fly to Ohio to play FC Cincinnati on Saturday.
