Impact looking for revenge against TFC

The  Montreal Impact is coming off a big win against Chicago this weekend at Saputo Stadium.

Next on the agenda is a rematch against Toronto FC for the second leg of their Canadian Championships

The team faced some  criticism last week after resting most of their starters for the first Canadian Championships. The match ended in a 2-0 loss to Toronto, but assistant coach Mauro Biello said today after practice that people can say what they want, they’re just trying to manage an intense schedule that will see the guys play six games in just 18 days.

“We have a lot of games at this time of the year. For us, every game is important. We try to balance the team to the best of our abilities. And to save some guys also, because the reality is certain guys cannot play three games in a week. So for us it’s about balancing it but having the most confidence in whatever team we put out there.”

Backup keeper Evan Bush, who got his first start of the season against Toronto last week, says there’s no use sitting around wondering what went wrong.

“We have no time to sit back and absorb pressure, we have to go out there and be the aggressor and find two goals at some point and keep a clean sheet. If things don’t go that way, then we’ll adapt to the game but hopefully things go smoothly and we get on the board quickly.”
