Impact vs San Jose Earthquakes : Road loss to start the season

Impact lose its first game ever in MLS against the San Jose Earthquakes

MLS: Montreal Impact at San Jose Earthquakes Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports

A goal from Godoy was enough for the San Jose Earthquakes to start its season with a home win. A lackluster performance at 11v11 was not overshadowed by playing one man down in the second half, after Hassoun Camara was shown a red card (2 yellow cards)

There was little difference between both halves. As the home team was able to press and control the rhythm of the game, Montreal never seemed to be able to find any kind of groove offensively.

It was not perfect defensively but the team tried to hold the fort as long as possible. The only goal of the game came from a sequence of mistakes that ended with an amazing finish by Anibal Odoy.

With little to show offensively, the Impact will be heading back home to prepare for its home opener , at the Olympic Stadium, against the defending champions, the Seattle Sounders.
