The Montreal Impact's friendly preseason game against the New York Red Bulls was played on a Thursday morning, as both head coaches were working on implementing their strategies and vision of the game in a real-game situation. To be able to see as much of the players on hand, both teams agreed to play 3 mini-games of 45 minutes each.
The Impact's starting eleven, all 3 of them, were as follows
Formation #1 : Waiting for Drogba
Formation #2 : Mix & Match
Votre XI du 2e 45 minutes: Kronberg; Oyongo, Fisher, Ciman, Camara; Donadel, Mallace; Ontivero, Gagnon-Laparé, Williams; Jackson-Hamel #IMFC— Impact de Montréal (@impactmontreal) February 4, 2016
Formation #3 : Let the kids plays, like all of them
Votre XI du 3e 45 minutes: Paulmin; Tissot, Fisher, Meilleur-Giguère, Smith; Dominguez, LBG, Jeanine; Jackson, Williams, Salazar #IMFC— Impact de Montréal (@impactmontreal) February 4, 2016
As both MLS clubs shared as many story lines as goals scored. Were goals really scored?
If i solely base myself on both club's high quality game highlights, I could definitely be living 2 distinct experiences
Experience #1: Red Bulls trash and destroy Montreal
