Mission accomplished for New York City FC. The Pigeons managed to defeat at Stade Saputo CF Montreal and now there is Philadelphia Union on the way to New York.

New York arrives with merit in the MLS 2022 playoffs semifinals, even if against the Canadians it suffered both for the warm environment and for the physicality of the opponents.

New York, however, went beyond the difficulties, playing good football, even if it was not easy against a solid and very physical team like Montreal, but above all it showed great cynicism. New York has made the most of the opportunities it has created, which instead failed in Montreal also because on their path they found Sean Johnson unsurpassable.

New York City FC played like a classic big team. Control of the match, never lose your head, total cynicism and concreteness. Characteristics that he will now have to propose again against Philadelphia to go to the final and try to reconfirm himself as champions until the end.
