Wanyama and Montreal Impact hand Columbus Crew first 2020 home loss

 The win is the first for the Canadian side since beating Vancouver Whitecaps 4-2 on September 14

Victor Wanyama and Montreal Impact earned a surprising 2-1 victory over Columbus Crew on Wednesday to record a first win in almost two months.

Lassi Lappalainen and Bojan Krkic were Montreal Impact’s scorers while Gyasi Zardes scored the only goal for Columbus Crew who were unbeaten this year at home. The loss also saw the hosts drop from the top of the Major League Soccer standings.

Lappalainen opened the scoring for Wanyama’s side in the 24th minute. The Finnish first sent a cross in for Bojan. Lappalainen was in a good position to head the rebound and the ball struck an opponent’s hand but the 22-year-old finished it off with a second attempt.
