CF Montreal: Back from the West Coast with valuable points

CF Montreal: Back from the west coast with valuable points< /p> UPDATE DAY

CF Montreal had a tough night at Carson on Monday, losing 4-0 to the Los Angeles Galaxy.

The loss is final, and you have to go back to March 12 to see the team concede so many goals in the same match. It was in a loss against New York City FC, at Yankee Stadium.

What catches the eye are the four goals scored on four shots on target. This means that the Galaxy took advantage of each of their chances to score.

However, CF Montreal also had good opportunities to thread the needle, whether early in the game or at the start of the second half, when the team was trying to make up for a 0-2 loss.

“We had the first dangerous situations and we have to score, remarked Wilfried Nancy by videoconference. They were fragile, it was a bit of a weird match. The result is what it is, but it does not reflect at all what we did today. ”

Mission accomplished 

We will first remember this loss of 4 to 0, but if we had said, before the team's departure for the West Coast, that it would come back with three points out of a possible six against Seattle and the Galaxy, everyone would have been happy.

Well, maybe not the Bleu-Blanc-Noir players, but we can still talk about successful operation.

“We went into this trip knowing that we were going to face two big teams from the West,” insisted Alistair Johnston, who had the impression of unfinished business after the meeting. 

“Winning in Seattle was half the job done and we had one battle left,” he continued.


CF Montreal have now played 18 games and only had one shutout since the start of the season, which has not escaped Johnston, who also regrets that the team often gives in the first quarter of an hour of the match.

“As a defender, this statistic is very frustrating, he launched. It looks like we can't go through the first ten minutes without giving up a goal. Too many quality chances are given early in games and yet it's not that we have bad starts because we also have our chances. »

« Before we can understand what happens, the ball is in the back of the net and we are behind in scoring,” he added.
