Atlanta — the Face of another training well established, the Impact has not been able to cause a second surprise in five days, and the club has cashed in a defeat of 2-0 in the face of the Atlanta United.
The Impact had put an end to a series of four defeats by beating the best training in the MLS, Toronto FC, 5-3 on Wednesday. On Sunday, the Impact has stumbled on to a team that had a record of 6-1-4 in its last 11 outings.
Héctor Villalba and Jeff Larentowicz have hit the target for the Atlanta United (14-8-7).
The Impact (11-13-6) has wasted an opportunity to join the Red Bulls of New York (12-11-6) in sixth and last place giving access to the series in the Association. The troupe Mauro Biello remains rather three points of the Red Bulls, who also have a match more to play by the end of the campaign.
The Blue-white-black will be back in action on Wednesday, when it will host the New York City FC at the Stade Saputo.
In a class of its own
The United dictated the game from the first moments of the meeting, so that Villalba has forced goalkeeper Evan Bush to dive to his left to make a stop as early as the first minute of the game.
Bush has also had to be alert in the 11th minute, when a center of Villalba was deflected on the defender Victor Cabrera.
The United suffered a blow in the 17th minute when his star player Miguel Almiron had to leave the game due to an injury.
The departure of Almiron has not slowed the enthusiasm of the premises and the Impact of luck in the 26th minute, when referee Ismail Elfath has turned a blind eye to a foul in the penalty area montreal while the ball was deflected off the arm of Cabrera.
The United didn’t seem bothered by the turn of events, and he eventually opened the scoring in the 28th minute. Carlos Carmona has helped Villalba to steal the ball with Samuel Piette. Villalba then fired a perfect strike from the top of the penalty area into the top corner to the left of Bush.
Josef Martinez has screwed up a golden opportunity to widen the gap in the 35th minute, but he completely missed a shot on the fly while he had been forgotten at the second post by the montreal defensive.
The Impact has given a sign of life thereafter, before the break, but Anthony Jackson-Hamel and Ignacio Piatti as a lack of lucidity.
The game is animated return of half-time, while the Impact has exchanged occasions with his rival.
Jackson-Hamel has waited too long before shooting so that it was snuck in between two defenders in the 50th minute, and then Chris McCann has just missed the target to the left of Bush a minute later.
Bush kept the Impact in the match frustrating Martinez in the 61st minute, and then Villalba is especially spectacular in the 62nd minute.
