Ignacio Piatti total of three goals this season and ten in his career against the formation floridienne.

Ignacio Piatti scored two goals, the first in a spurt of two goals in less than a minute in the first half, and the Montreal Impact defeated Orlando City SC by the score of 3-1 Saturday afternoon.

A week after a heartbreaking loss to Houston, the Impact has therefore collected a second win abroad in three outings this season. It is already one less than the total registered for the whole of last year on the lawns of your enemies.

Piatti, with a total of three goals this season and ten in his career against the training in florida, has first touched the target during the 15th minute of the game, which allowed the troupe of Rémi Garde to give a lead of 2-0.

The Argentine has recurred during the 80th minute of the game, completing a sequence that began by Harry Novillo, who had made his entry, some six minutes earlier for his first career game in MLS.

Novillo has been sent into the fray in lieu of Orji Okwonkwo, who had opened the scoring a few seconds before one of Piatti in the first half.

The second net Piatti was the first this season for the Impact in the second half of a match.

Dom Dwyer, who had squandered several good opportunities to score earlier, has prevented Evan Bush to harvest a first shutout this season, and 34th in career scoring at the beginning of the stop time of the second half.

The spirits boiled over in a couple of occasions, but especially during the downtime of the second half. A skirmish behind the goal line, in the area of montreal, has led to a red card to the defender Zakaria Diallo to get it pushed Dwyer to the ground.

Diallo will therefore be absent for the next match of the Impact, which will be held on march 30 against Sporting Kansas City. This will be the fourth of six consecutive matches of the international Impact in the beginning of the season.
