2023-06-22 01:34:59

CF Montreal players, visibly fresh and ready after a 10-day break, won 1-0 against Nashville SC on Wednesday night at Saputo Stadium.

Head coach Hernan Losada’s men were in control almost the entire clash against one of the hottest teams in Major League Soccer (MLS). By virtue of the day’s result, the Tennessee club saw their Garber Tour unbeaten streak come to an end at 10.

Nashville SC had not suffered defeat in MLS since April 15. For the Bleu-Blanc-Noir, it is a second victory in a row, having beaten Minnesota United 4-0 in its last outing. It was also the first time in seven games that the Belle Province club won against Nashville.

Also, CF Montreal now has a 7-1-0 record at home.

“It took a lot of energy for us to build that reputation at home and that’s something we have to maintain for the rest of the season,” Losada said before the game. It’s now a matter of being competitive against MLS Cup contenders. Nashville is one of them.”

The head coach can say mission accomplished, thanks in particular to the success of Bryce Duke.

The only goal of the match was scored in the 27th minute. In possession of the ball, striker Sunusi Ibrahim fell to the ground twice. He still managed to keep the precious object and gave it to Mason Toye, who immediately gave it back to him. The Nigeria native then found Duke in the top of the penalty area. The latter fired a powerful shot low to the ground and his strike deceived the vigilance of goalkeeper Joe Willis.

In front of the net for the winners, Jonathan Sirois made two saves. He thus signed his seventh shutout of the current campaign.

CF Montreal will return to action this Saturday. For the occasion, the Losada squad will travel to the Bank of America Stadium to face Charlotte FC. The Montreal eleven will find its supporters on July 1, for a visit of New York City FC in the Quebec metropolis.
