CF Montreal will host Minnesota United on Saturday night at Saputo Stadium with the club looking to finish a long stretch of games strong before the international break.

“It will be good for the whole team,” Losada said when I asked him if he was relieved to have just one game left before the two-week international break.

“We have one game left to finish this incredible stretch of games but I have to say we enjoyed it and we took a lot of lessons and points from the losses. We keep on learning with this young group.”

“We try to stay positive and after the break, we have more home games than on the road. It will be good for us and we will try to stay competitive.”

Incredible is quite the statement from Losada, being that the team is finishing off a stretch of 11 games in 36 days and playing twice a week for almost five straight weeks.

Saturday the team will also unveil its new home jersey, which funny enough got leaked when a store put the jersey on its shelves before the announcement.

The Loons, unlike CF Montreal, are a better team on the road than they are at home. Losada gave us his thoughts on the opponent they face.

“They are a good team with a lot of individual qualities and they don’t have the mental fatigue that we have so it’s up to us to be ready.”

Jonathan Sirois, who had an outstanding performance on Wednesday night in Vancouver, spoke about moving on and focusing on the task at hand.

“I think what is most important is we want to end off well,” Sirois mentioned. “We want to end at home with three points and I think those points will be important for us.”

Rudy Camacho actually looked relieved when I asked him about playing the final game of a long stretch.

“It’s the last game of this long schedule”, Camacho confirmed. “It’s important because we have one more game in front of our fans and to finish well and to finish the long stretch and to have some time off to rest and we will take advantage of it.”

Camacho admitted to me that he is feeling very tired and says the packed schedule has affected him mentally and physically.

“We are almost at the end, it’s a bit tiring mentally and physically, and now we have to give everything we have in the tank.”

Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30PM on Saturday at Saputo Stadium and can be seen on Apple TV MLS Season Pass. The game will be shown for free.
