NYCFC held Montreal without a shot on target and forced five saves out of Evan Bush. City has seven clean sheets on the season.

Montreal falls to 2-9 away from home. The Impact had won four-straight heading into the match, and sit sixth in the Eastern Conference.

Back to Medina: The Paraguayan 21-year-old scored his first goal since April with this banger, (in)adequately catered by Montreal’s top of the box defense.
