Montreal supporters will wish to forget the evening in which the fashionable Bernardeschi, with brand-new bleached cornrows, scored goals in the 12th, 58th, and 60th minutes. Toronto (7-6-1) also had goals from Matty Longstaff and Prince Owusu in front of an exuberant announced crowd of 28,261 at BMO Field.

Sunusi Ibrahim rallied Montreal (3-7-3) from a 5-0 deficit. Toronto has 22 points, which is the same as it had the previous season, when it finished worst in the league with 4-20-10.

The Italians were leading the way while Toronto was blazing at full capacity. Bernardeschi has now scored seven goals in his previous four games after going 19 games without scoring, dating back to a two-goal effort in a 3-2 loss to Montreal in August of last year.

From the beginning, Toronto was in complete control, leading 3-0 after just 19 minutes and obviously having a different gear than Montreal. Compared to Montreal’s six shots and three on target, Toronto’s 13 shots in the first half were on target.

As of right now, CF Montreal have given up 31 goals in 13 games, including 15 in its past four league games. Toronto led 13th-place Montreal in the Eastern Conference by seven points and seven positions heading into the weekend action.
