Sorare MLS football preview: Philadelphia Union vs Montreal

Philadelphia Union will be looking to continue their fine recent run of form as they look to close the gap on runaway leaders FC Cincinnati in the Easter Conference of MLS.

Zolos have won three on the bounce to rise up to third in the league and have won six in seven all told as they look to claw back the nine-point advantage Cincinnati have already opened up, and come up against Montreal who have been inconsistent so far and lie down in 10th place.

The game will be part of Gameweek 377 Sorare Football, and 101 Great Goals has broken down the key statistical takeaways ahead of the game.

Three Philadelphia Union Sorare gems to watch

Julian Carranza

Philadelphia’s main striker has netted four times in the last five games, and is a man in top form. The game against Charlotte was not quite as successful but with seven goals and two assists to his name already this season he is well on course to at least match last season’s total of 20 goal involvements (14 goals and six assists) and if he can do that, then he will be well worth having in your side.

Jack Elliott

English defender Elliott has been another who has benefited from Philadelphia’s fine run of form. The centre-back has an L5 of 63 following very consistent scores of 40, 68, 65, 71 and 71 with one assist to his name along with three clean sheets. With a home game against 10th-placed Montreal to come, they will fancy their chances of extending that run.

Three Montreal Sorare gems to watch

Chinonso Offor

Though not normally considered a goalscorer, Offor has responded to the opportunity to lead the line for Montreal this season with the best form of his career. Having netted three goals in total in the last three seasons with Chicago Fire and Zulte Waregem of Belgium, Offor has already matched that and doubled his career tally. He has made 11 starts so far this season so is firmly established as the leading man in attack, and with two goals in his last five is also a man in form but an L5 of 47 means he will go under the radar.

George Campbell

Campbell’s entrance into the Montreal side was delayed at the start of the campaign after a lengthy ankle injury, but his presence is being felt already after a recent run of starts. It took him a while to get going but scores of 79, 68 and 64 in his L5 average of 57 suggest he is right up to speed now and an important part of the Montreal back line. He has actually been their best player in the last five games and with those matches seeing an upturn in their results, could be a good player to back.

Ariel Lassiter

The winger-cum-full-back enjoyed his best game of the season during the week in the 2-2 draw with DC United, where he contributed a goal and an assist to claim an overall score of 88. It backed up his previous high score of 77 to show that he is a man in form. He has already played more games than he did for Inter Miami last season and improved on his attacking returns.
