The CONCACAF Champions League hangover wasn't very strong for the Montreal Impact, as they delivered a 1-0 victory over the visiting Toronto FC. This means Toronto will have plenty of work to do when the tie returns to Toronto next Wednesday.
Jack McInerney scored the lone goal of the leg, off of some suspect defending by Toronto FC. This ended a more than 300 minute period in which TFC kept a clean sheet. On the other side of things, Eric Kronberg had a clean sheet of his own to insure Toronto have nothing to build off of next week.
Analysis of the match will be up shortly, until then, go watch what should be an excellent match between the LA Galaxy and Real Salt Lake.
