The Montreal Impact have announced that they will host an international friendly with one of the biggest Serie A clubs. A.S. Roma are set to face off versus our Montreal Impact at Stade Saputo on August 3rd at 7:30pm.
A.S. Roma finished third in the prestigious Italian league behind world renown Juventus and Napoli. A.S. Roma have been one of the most important clubs in Italy's top flight since their creation in 1927. They have won the Serie A three times and have made it to the European Cup finals (ancestor of the Champions League). Roma are the fourth most decorated club in Italian football history. In the most recent Champions League, Roma were eliminated by eventual champions Real Madrid in the round of 16.
It is impressive to note that both the fore mentioned clubs will be hosted by our Montreal Impact this summer. Real Madrid will be using the Impact's training facilities while they play their international friendlies in the U.S. So the Impact will be able to see the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale in practice and have the opportunity to play against the likes of Radja Nainggolan, Stephen El Shaarway and Francesco Totti.
I am not sure if Roma will dress their best eleven on August 3rd at Stade Saputo but it will still be a magnificent occasion for the Impact to measure themselves against an extremely talented and storied European club.
Let's all show up at Stade Saputo on August 3rd in order to support our Montreal Impact in their historic match with A.S. Roma.
Good luck boys!
