Once again this week, a red card was given during a game involving the Bleu-blanc-noir, but this time, Montreal was the team taking advantage. At the very end of the first half, Matteo Mancosu, released behind the back four by Patrice Bernier, won his duel with Leandro González Pírez and was through on goal. The Argentinean centre back went in a bit too hard on the Italian striker, denying him an obvious goal scoring opportunity, which resulted in a red card, according to the laws of the game (page 87). The Impact thus dominated the second half, as Tata Martino reshuffled his formation and space freed up in the midfield. Here are your weekly advanced stats.
