Two fantastic goals from Ignacio Piatti and the others from Ambroise Oyongo and Kyle Fisher gave Montreal Impact a 4-1 home victory over the 10-man Timbers team, as Montreal Impact snapped their string of disappointing home results.

Piatti began the goal feasts

In his second appearance with the Montreal Impact, Swiss international Blerim Dzemaili won his side a penalty kick in the thirteenth minute. The Swiss veteran won possession of the ball in the center midfield and hurriedly passed it to Ignacio Piatti. The Argentine forward played the ball back to Dzemaili, who was brought down inside the penalty box by Timbers' defender Sebastian Blanco.

Ignacio Piatti clinically converted the spot kick to give the hosts the early lead and this made him Montreal Impact's all-time leading goalscorer in the Major League Soccer era.

Diego Chara was given a red card

Afterward, matters went from bad to worse for Portland in the eighteenth minute as a result of a straight red card that was given to fullback Diego Chara. Along the sideline near the Montreal Impact dugout, Diego Chara was in close contest for the ball with Ignacio Piatti and in a moment of frustration, Chara gave the Impact attacking midfielder an aggressive punch in his face following the play. Montreal Impact doubled the lead just minutes before halftime. Kyle Fisher headed home a corner kick cross from Blerim Dzemaili that got past Timbers goalie Jake Gleeson to give Montreal Impact a 2-0 lead in the forty-second minute.

Timbers seemed to come back before the break

High on their two-goal lead, the hosts were given a “cold shower” from the Portland Timbers in the forty-fourth minute. Timbers playmaker Diego Valeri gave his side a chance to come back in the encounter by heading home a lofty through ball to bring the scoreline to 2-1 just seconds before the break.

The Portland Timbers first half late goal did not appear to have affected the hosts. Six minutes after coming back from the dressing rooms, Ignacio Piatti extended the tally for the hosts making it 3-1. The Impact's all-time leading scorer took his time to launch a long-range shot from the left side of the box to extend the Impact lead by two goals up.

Oyongo capped the victory for the Impact

Just minutes before the end of the encounter, Cameroonian international Ambroise Oyongo netted the fourth goal for Impact. It was Ballou Jean-Yves Tabla that gained possession of the ball from a Portland defender on the right flank, beating two other defenders before sending the ball inside the box for Ambroise Oyongo to finish. The Cameroonian star notched his first goal of the 2017 season and sealed the victory for Montreal Impact in grand style.
