FC Cincinnati return to Nippert Stadium with a new (interim) coach in hopes of snapping a five-game losing streak when they host the Montreal Impact Saturday afternoon.

FC Cincinnati (2-7-2) dropped a 1-0 decision to 10-man San Jose Saturday night, the fifth straight game they failed to score and the seventh in a row they didn't win. After, Alan Koch was relieved of his duties, replaced by Yoann Damet on an interim basis.

The Impact (6-4-2) come to Cincinnati off a huge midweek victory, their first ever in 10 tries at Red Bull Arena, rallying to defeat the New York Red Bulls, 2-1, Wednesday night. Maxi Urruti followed Zakaria Diallo's equalizer with the winner from the penalty spot.
