Unbeaten in their last three games without conceding a goal, the Montreal Impact hope to continue their early-season road success when meeting a Philadelphia Union squad seeking a fourth win in their last five games.

The Impact were 2-2-2 away from home before a 1-0 win over the Columbus Crew in their 2019 Stade Saputo opener. Harry Novillo, starting in place of the injured Ignacio Piatti, scored his first MLS goal.

The Union had their three-match winning streak snapped in Carson, Calif., on Saturday night with Zlatan Ibrahimovic scoring a first-half brace to lead the LA Galaxy to a 2-0 victory.
