MONTREAL – The Montreal Impact doubled its lead on Real Salt Lake with a penalty kick goal by Saphir Taider in the 68th minute to take a 2-0 lead.

The opportunity was granted to Montreal after RSL’s Donny Toia was called for a foul after tripping up the Impact’s Bacary Sagna in the box after Sagna beat Joao Plata to a loose ball.

For Taider, Montreal’s leading goal-scorer, it was his fifth strike of the season as he got the better of RSL goalkeeper Nick Rimando.

Montreal’s first goal came at the end of the first half on a nice shot by Omar Browne. RSL’s Sam Johnson had a nice look at an equalizing goal but he was called offsides on the play.

RSL came into the game on a three game winning streak. The club has never before beaten Montreal on the road.

The match between RSL and Montreal can be streamed live on or on the KSL TV app.
