However Montreal captain Jukka Raitala insisted the group will go for the kill Wednesday evening (9:30 p.m., TSN 1, TSN 5, TVA Sports activities, TSN Radio-690) when it meets the Vancouver Whitecaps for the second time in 4 days at B.C. Place Stadium.

“We need to go ahead. We need to rating targets. We need to play entertaining soccer,” Raitala stated late Tuesday afternoon, throughout a video convention name from Vancouver. “Clearly on the finish of the sport, in the event you’re main within the 85th minute, it’s important to be intelligent. However in any other case, if we rating the primary objective, we need to rating a second and third.

“We will’t go to the sport and suppose we solely want that sport 1-Zero. I feel we’re going to attempt to win with as many targets as doable.”

It’s very elementary for the Affect — defeat the Whitecaps for the second time since Sunday and it advances to the Canadian Championship in opposition to both the Halifax Wanderers or Forge FC, primarily based out of Hamilton, of the Canadian Premier League. Montreal is the defending Canadian champion.
