Charlotte FC looks to continue their excellent home form as they welcome CF Montreal to Bank of America Stadium.

Since a loss to the Los Angeles Galaxy in their first-ever match, CLTFC have won four straight at home, having conceded just once in that span.

Montreal have been one of the hottest teams in MLS, currently on a seven-match unbeaten run, scoring 18 goals in that stretch as they sit third in the Eastern Conference standings.

Team news

Charlotte FC

Vinicius Mello continues to miss out as he is recovering from surgery on his foot. Chris Hegardt joins him as a long-term absentee with a knee injury.

Joseph Mora is still in health and safety protocols and won't play a part in this game. Adam Armour remains out with a knee injury.

CF Montreal

Mason Toye is still out with an abductor injury, leaving Romell Quioto to help lead the line in attack.

Bjorn Johnsen remains absent due to a foot injury, after missing last week's game with an illness.

Predicted lineups

Charlotte FC: Kahlina; Mora, Fuchs, Corujo, Lindsey; Bronico; Józwiak; Ruiz, Bender, Reyna; Swiderski

CF Montreal: Breza; Miller, Waterman, Camacho; Lappalainen, Piette, Wanyama, Johnston; Mihailovic, Quioto, Torres

Ones to watch

Yordy Reyna (Charlotte FC)

He was the driving force behind Charlotte's U.S. Open Cup victory, scoring once and registering three assists in a 5-1 victory over USL League One side Richmond.

Djordje Mihailovic (CF Montreal)

If it weren't for Sebastian Driussi, the Serbian-born American would be the runaway MVP at this point, having scored five goals while also contributing four assists and being at the heart of everything Montreal does.
