Unbeaten is the Montreal Impact in the 2013 MLS preseason. A 0-0 tie was the result at Everbanks field, the home of the Jacksonville Jaguars of the NFL. Marco Schällibaum fielded a ''B'' squad with a young squad as the starting XI against a veteran Philadelphia Union MLS starting XI.

The game was not broadcasted live but live tweeting and a live event was organised by the Montreal Impact on their side. Also MLSSoccer.com's beat report and colleague, Olivier Tremblay, was live in Florida live tweeting the game.

They had their veterans against our 'baby' team. We want to give them the experience and I think that they showed us what they were made of. The young players defended well, against a team that had 90% of its regular starters.
