Montreal Impact have hit the 20,000 mark for tickets sold for this weekend’s clash with New York Red Bulls.

The Canadian club meet the 2013 MLS Supporters’ Shield winners at the Olympic Stadium in Montreal on Saturday in their second fixture at the venue for the 2014 season.

The Impact attracted more than 27,000 fans to their home opener – a 2-0 loss to Seattle Sounders on March 23 – and are expecting to surpass that when Thierry Henry, Tim Cahill and co. come to town this weekend.

So far in the 2014 MLS campaign, the Frank Klopas-led Impact have lost three and drawn one of their opening four matches.
