Cincinnati snatched all three points from Montréal in a 2-1 victory on Saturday, at Stade Saputo. Following today’s result, MON are in 5th place, with 8 points from 8 matches, while Cin sit in 13th, with 4 points from 8.

After an un-eventful first half, MON fought back the second half, with a goal from Mihailovic at the 56 minute mark. However, the good fortune didn’t last for long. An equalizer from Locadia at the 70 minute mark brought Cin level. However they weren’t finished yet and Vallecilla made it 2-1 just before the final whistle to make it 2-1.

For MON, Bassong, Torres, Ibrahim, Johnsen and Bayiha, came on for Lappalainen, Ahmed Hamdi, Waterman, Quioto and Brault-Guillard. Cin replaced Locadia, Medunjanin and Vázquez with Barreal, Cruz and Stanko.

The referee booked Mihailovic, Brault-Guillard, Quioto and Wanyama for MON.

MON will play away against Chicago Fire, while Cin will face New England Revolution at home.
