Toronto FC 0 - Montreal Impact 0 : First Half Notes, Stats and Comments

Here is your halftime report for the game between Toronto FC and the Montreal Impact.

It's a scoreless draw after 45 minutes

The Montreal Impact had most of the chances in the first half with X attempts on goal. Andrew Wenger found himself 1-on-1 against TFC goalkeeper Freddy Hall but his shot went just wide. The MLS rookie had another chance to score but was impeded when trying to shoot by Terry Dunfield.

A few changes in the Montreal lineup saw Alessandro Nesta not start with Hassoun Camara forming a pair with Matteo Ferrari. Calum Mallace get his second consecutive MLS start in the midfield and Collen Warner was put in the offensive midfield role in front of Mallace and Patrice Bernier.

The Andrew Wenger - Marco Di Vaio duo was more a trio with a sort of a 4-3-3 with Sanna Nyassi and Di Vaio playing on the ''wings''. Di Vaio was moving around up and down the field and give options to build the play.

Most of the game was to the advantage of the Impact but again with a few attempts on goal without an actual goal might hurt the Impact later.

The last 5-10 minutes of the game saw more confidence from Toronto FC with nice runs from Luis Silva and Reggie Lambe that showed more initiative and ''pep'' in their efforts.

BMO field looks pretty empty and no official word on actual attendance numbers. Kudos to the Montreal Impact in Toronto (if any) and those that made the trip to Toronto to cheer on their team. The Montreal Impact fans have been loud in their cheers and support for their club.
