New York City took a new breath this Wednesday by ending a five-game losing streak in Major League Soccer (MLS), after beating Montreal CF 2-0, a result that keeps their hopes of advancing to the ‘playoffs’ alive, with seven days to go to finish the regular round.
As has rarely happened this season, the New York team managed to take advantage of their possession of the ball and At minute 30, he opened the scoring through Andrés Jasson, who scored a great goal after making a cut into the area and finishing off with the left foot, leaving goalkeeper Jonathan Sirois without a chance.
That first goal served as a boost for City, which was inspired by attack and only 7 minutes later extended their lead with a goal from their most recent signings, Algerian forward Monsef Bakrar, who debuted his goalscoring quota in MLS, in his third game with NYCFC.
The last victory that the sky-blue team had achieved in the MLS dated back to July 1 and was precisely against the Canadian team, although that game was as a visitor.
This was the second longest losing streak New York City has gone through so far this season, remembering that a few months ago he played 12 games without knowing the victory among all competitions, however, the board showed confidence in coach Nick Cushing, who could achieve the miracle if they win the following games and other results combine in their favor.
And it is that after 27 games (out of 34), the ‘Citizen’ team is ranked 13th in the Eastern Conference with 29 points, but it is three units away from the qualifying positions for the ‘playoffs’.
