Result: David Villa brace fires New York City to victory over Montreal Impact

David Villa notches two goals to fire New York City to a 2-1 win over the Montreal Impact in their MLS clash at the Stade Saputo.

A brace from David Villa secured a 2-1 win for New York City in their MLS clash against the Montreal Impact.

The Impact were the first to threaten as Ignacio Piatti was played through behind the City defence, but Josh Saunders was on hand to make a good save with his feet.

Saunders was called on again minutes later to deny Dilly Duka as Piatti teed up the midfielder on the edge of the box, but the keeper made the stop.

Montreal continued to threaten as Andres Romero picked out the run of Callum Mallace with a through ball, but his strike was saved low down to his left by Saunders.

The home side were to rue their missed chances as City took the lead in the 34th minute when Villa collected a pass from Patrick Mullins and drilled a low effort into the bottom corner with his left foot.

In the second half, Romero broke through up the middle for the Impact and had the chance to slot the ball past Saunders, but the keeper made another fine stop.

Montreal earned the chance to get back in the game when Thomas McNamara handled the ball in the penalty area and a spot kick was awarded. Piatti took the spot kick and fired the ball past Saunders.

However, the home side's joy was short-lived as New York regained the lead in the 84th minute when Ambroise Oyongo gave away a free kick on the edge of the box, and Villa made no mistake curling his effort beyond the reach of Evan Bush.

The Impact made a late push to get back into the game, but the visitors held out for the three points.
