Chivas USA continue their road trip, and their busy week, with a match against the Montreal Impact this afternoon (4 pm PT, MLS Live). It is the Goats' first competitive match up in Quebec, and although they have been making their way across the country this week, it is still a long way from Dallas to Montreal. Still, morale is up, the Goats have been playing better, and Montreal is having a few struggles of their own lately. Don't let the seven goals conceded in two games fool you, however. The Impact sit atop the Eastern Conference standings, and are legitimate contenders for the Supporters' Shield to this point in the season.
If you missed it, be sure to check out the match preview from earlier today.
