Montreal holds FC Atlante in check.
The second match of the group phase of the CONCACAF Champions League for the Montreal Impact was presented at the Saputo stadium yesterday. The FC Atlante from Mexico were the visitors.
The weather was surprizingly warm for this time of the year and the stadium was almost to it's capacity as 12 187 fans were gathered for this match.
After a slow start, the Montreal Impact took control of the match and had a few glorious chances to score. FC Atlante's goaltender, Federico Villar, kept his team in the game on a few occasions with spectacular saves to keep the game scoreless.
When the final whistle blew, the score was still tied at 0-0 and both teams gathered a point in the standings. Both teams are tied in first place of Group C and both teams have a record of a win and a tie after two games.
The next match for the Montreal Impact in this Champions League will take place Honduras as the CD Olimpio will host the Montreal squad.
