Ignacio Piatti scores early after a great piece of play that starts from a Wandrille Lefevre pass, a Johan Venegas cheeky pass to Lucas Ontivero who passes it to Nacho to slot it home past Bendik. A strong first half by the Montreal Impact was cause for happiness as the squad was playing without Didier Drogba, injured.
"It was disappointing to lose at the end. We need to do a better job in managing the game - when to calm things down, and when to accelerate. It was an almost perfect first half, but the tying goal was disappointing.
Keeping that lead would have been key for the Bleu-Blanc-Noir but concede a late first-half goal on a set-piece yet again. Though, the quality of the delivery by Kaka was as impressive as Larin's header. The second goal by Orlando was courtesy of a Julio Baptista - Kaka connection to finally find Larin who slots the ball in.
Cyle Larin could have scored but he didn't...
Kudos to Wandrille Lefevre, aka slide machine
As he continues his unblemished streak of tackling star players.
