Low Impact: Montreal Impact 2-1 Philadelphia Union

Brotherly Game at related • 0 views

The Philadelphia Union traveled up to Montreal and left with nothing more than an uninspiring loss.

Coming off the conclusion of the 2017 Gold Cup break, the Philadelphia Union hoped to re-enter MLS play with a solid road victory at Stade Saputo against Montreal Impact. Unfortunately for them though, and despite the fact that the Union had a Saturday tune-up against English Premier League side Swansea City, they dropped all three points Wednesday night by a score of 2-1.

Union battled Eastern-Conference-leading Montreal Impact to a 1-1 draw at Stade Saputo. Here are the major talk-points of Saturday's match, eh.

1). The short week: Philadelphia Union hosted LA Galaxy this past Wednesday, while Montreal Impact did not play during the week. Jim Curtin only made two changes in his starting XI from the previous match, and Union's ability to play high-press was affected by it.

Espindola, Di Vaio trade goals as D.C. United closes regular season with a 1-1 draw in Montreal - Recap + Highlights

Black and Red United at related • 0 views

Missing a few regulars, United were in charge for long spells but struggled to break down the Impact before Espindola's late strike leveled the score.

Playing your best soccer in a game with few short-term consequences is always a bit tricky, and so it proved for D.C. United. Despite owning a sizable possession advantage and producing more shots, crosses, and just about every other attacking stat than the Montreal Impact, the Black-and-Red were held to a 1-1 draw at Stade Saputo.

As I am kitted out, ready to depart my gracious hosts for this derby, I can't help but think "what the hell am I doing here?!?" I'm still a bit sore, it took way too long to get out of the GTA, it's kinda warm, and we still have to battle Montreal traffic to get to Stade Fromage. I know Montreal is crap looking upwards and our beloved Robins are on the brink of a tumble downwards, but when haven't they.

Federico Higuaín's magic touch helped the Columbus Crew (10-14-5, 35 pts.) continue to keep their playoff hopes alive with two assists in the Crew's 2-1 comeback win over the Montreal Impact (13-8-6, 45 pts.) at the Stade Saputo on Saturday.

The Impact, who ceded the top-spot in the Eastern Conference to the New York Red Bulls with the loss, dominated much of the game and created plenty of chances, but it took their eighth corner of the match in the 24th minute for Montreal to grab the lead.

The Montreal Impact will look to improve to 4-0 today when they take on a short-handed New York Red Bulls side at Stade Saputo. Patrice Bernier has been one of the league's best players early in the season and will be looking to dominate the middle against a good New York midfield that features Dax McCarty.

Saturday's match in Quebec will be the opener of Stade Saputo's MLS era. The Montreal Impact are in many ways similar to the Sounders, not just because of the players, but the number of connections they maintained to their USL & A-League past. They haven't been awful this year. The 3-7-3 record this year isn't in the horrid levels that most expansion teams experience.
