Final - New York City FC 2-0 CF Montréal

The Bleu-blanc-noir will play its upcoming game at Stade Saputo this Saturday at 7:30pm against the Columbus Crew.


-With a 151st game, Samuel Piette equalled a Club record in MLS for most games played by a field player. 


"We know that we are a team that wins when we have the lead and when we trail it’s more complicated. We had plenty of opportunities and moments where we could have ended with a strike or more danger. That’s something to improve but we will keep at it. We will do everything to get points on Saturday. It's important to finish on a positive note before the international break."


"We lacked aggressiveness in the first half. We tried to press, I felt like we were a little bit too hesitant at first. For some of us it was a first at Yankee Stadium. At home, the pitch is different and wider. We just got back from a game against New England where we sat back a little bit more, which helped us. We might’ve had the same idea in mind to defend a little deeper and we quickly realized that we need to be more aggressive."


"We knew that it was going to be a hard game on the road, obviously. It's no surprise, in their stadium, on their pitch but it’s never an excuse though."
