The Montreal Impact have 2 games left in their pre-season preparation and after facing New York City FC and D.C. United, the Reds are in the path of the Bleu-Blanc-Noir. Toronto FC might be looking to get revenge on the Impact after back-to-back losses at Stade Saputo, including the last game of the 2015 MLS season and knockout playoff game.
But hey bragging rights or not, who cares about getting revenge on the score sheet. This game's scoreline is as relevant as the virtual economy of Narnia. But the most intriguing aspect of this game is whether the rivalry will continue in Florida.
We still have two preseason games left, and we've done well so far.Tomorrow's game against Toronto will be important in our preparation, because we want to start our season well against Vancouver. The group has been working very well together, and I hope we'll do even better than we did last year.
"It's very evident how this fanbase feels about Montreal. Regardless of the fact that it's the preseason, it's Red against Blue. I've been in some pretty good rivalries in MLS and this will be a new one. This rivalry probably runs deeper than anything I've played in so far. I'm looking forward to Wednesday and a result is important at this point because again, winning needs to be a habit.
It makes sense from a Canadian perspective. I'm interested to see how that plays out. I haven't been a part of it yet, but playing in [Ottawa] before I knew of that provincial rivalry. I'm looking forward to getting integrated into it.
