Following their win against Western Conference leaders Real Salt Lake, CF Montreal are preparing for a crucial clash against the New York Red Bulls on Wednesday at the Stade Saputo. Coach Laurent Courtois can count on important reinforcements such as Matías Cóccaro, Lassi Lappalainen, Mahala Opoku and Mason Toye, all of whom returned from injuries in the last match. This recovery of attacking players was key to the victory over Salt Lake, and the team is looking to maintain its unbeaten run, which has now lasted four games.

The head-to-head record between Montreal and NYRB favors the Canadian team when playing at home. With a record of 6-1-1 at the Stade Saputo against the New Yorkers, Montreal go into the game with renewed confidence. Striker Sunusi Ibrahim leads the team in goals this season, with five, and is one goal away from becoming one of the top ten scorers in the club's history.

NYRB, under German coach Sandro Schwarz, are third in the Eastern Conference, with an impressive defensive record of just 0.83 goals conceded per game. Goalkeeper Ryan Meara has been a key player, recording his second clean sheet of the season in a goalless draw against Nashville SC. With 19 shutouts in his NYRB career, Meara is one of the team's defensive pillars.

Although Montreal have allowed 35 goals this season, the most in the Eastern Conference, their unbeaten streak and the return of key players suggest an even contest against one of the league's best defenses. Aiming to consolidate their position in the table, Montreal must maintain the focus and determination shown in recent matches to overcome the challenge posed by the Red Bulls.
