Montreal Alouettes vs. Ottawa RedBlacks
The Montreal Alouettes and the Ottawa RedBlacks are all set to face off in what promises to be a thrilling encounter. Given their past performances, the Alouettes are expected to start as favorites.
Montreal had a solid season last year, finishing second in the East Division with a 9-9 record. They demonstrated their prowess both home and away, boasting a 5-4-0 record on their own turf and an equally impressive 4-5-0 on the road.
On the other hand, Ottawa RedBlacks had a challenging season last year, finishing last in the East Division with a 4-14 record. Their home performance was notably lackluster, failing to secure a win in 9 games. On the road, they fared better with a 4-5-0 record.
Key Players to Watch
The Alouettes will be without starting quarterback Cody Fajardo, as the team believes he’s already well-versed with Jason Maas’ offence and wants to give their other quarterbacks a shot. On the other hand, the Redblacks seem to be cautious about Jeremiah Masoli’s recovery from a leg injury, and it’s unlikely he will play.
Look for Caleb Evans, who recently moved from Ottawa to Montreal, is one to watch. The Redblacks, on the other hand, have Nick Arbuckle to step up to the plate.
