Like in 2012, Davy Arnaud scores the Montreal Impact's first goal of the season. The Impact lead the Sounders 1-0 at half-time.
Noisy but not hostile (yet), Century Link Field is host to an interesting but not very open first half. The Seattle Sounders were going to dictact the tempo of the game. But the Impact still managed to find some holes in the Seattle defense with some quick counter-attacks.
Talking about Davy Arnaud's goal, Felipe beautiful pass and Di Vaio ''dummy'' run was a beautiful movement. Eddie Johnson was close to give Seattle the lead, earlier in the game. With a bigger dominance in possession for the hosts, Montreal has been interestingly solid defensively but with some approximative passing that can be costly in the 2nd half.
