In this all Canada affair in MLS Gameweek 1, Montreal Impact came out on top against the Vancouver Whitecaps at BC Place yesterday.
Impact’s Didier Drogba was ruled out of the match because of a recurring knee injury, so Ignacio Piatti stepped up for the side and scored two goals for his team. Dom Oduro got Montreal’s other with Jordan Harvey and Kendall Waston scoring Vancouver’s goals.
It was a disappointing start to the 2016 MLS season for Carl Robinson’s Vancouver, as home form has always been a problem. It is only Gameweek 1, however, and the Whitecaps have plenty of time to make BC Place a fortress again.
For Montreal, Ignacio Piatti had a fantastic game for the Impact and fans could be dreaming of a Drogba/Piatti duo coming along. It was an encouraging performance for the side, however, the two goals they conceded were sloppy from their perspective.
