Recap: CF Montreal Dominated By New England Revolution
On Saturday night at Gillette Stadium CF Montreal was looking to get back on the right track after losing another bad game to Vancouver, but instead succumbed to another bad defeat losing 4-0.
It’s not an ideal situation for the club and its new head coach Herman Losada, who was looking to ride the momentum of a huge come-from-behind win at Olympic Stadium against Philadelphia two weeks ago.
Instead, they suffered a major loss as Samuel Piette will miss the next 6-8 weeks after injuring his abductor once again in the game against Vancouver.
The home side opened the scoring in the 21st minute as Dylan Borrero madd an absolute beauty of a goal, beating Jonathan Sirois with a perfectly timed curling shot from just outside the box.
The visitors had their chances early on as Romell Quioto earned CF Montreal’s first shot on target but it was saved by the Revs keeper.
In the 45th minute, the Revolution was given a penalty thanks to a handball in the box. Carles Gil stepped up to the spot and doubled New England’s lead at halftime.
Bobby Wood made it 3-0 for the Revs in the 50th minute when he was able to power a shot past Sirois into the back of the net as CF Montreal looked completely out of it.
To add insult to injury, New England added a fourth goal in the 86th minute as Giacomo Vrioni made a solid run with the ball and with another powerful shot beat Sirois from the top of the goal circle.
After the game head coach Hernan Losada spoke about reuniting his team and getting back on the right track once again.
“At the moment this is not enough. The only solution is to remain united, but to analyze ourselves critically. We have to look in the mirror and analyze because the current performance is not enough. The veteran players must put last year behind them and the young players must understand that the opportunity in front of them is exceptional. Until now, they have not been able to take advantage of this opportunity. The home games are coming now, but we need more from everyone.”
Kamal Miller agreed with his head coach and says the level right now isn’t good enough for them to compete in the MLS.
“We all have to take a hard look at ourselves and raise our level of play individually. There have been too many individual mistakes in recent games where we could have prevented goals. We need to communicate better and get back to the things we do best. Our defense has not gotten off to a good start. Fortunately, it is still early in the season. We will return to the drawing board. With this upcoming run of home games and the return of some players from injury will be a good time to analyze what we need to do to get better results.”
CF Montreal will return home to prepare for its first game at Saputo Stadium next Saturday as they host DC United.
