MONTREAL — Blerim Dzemaili broke a tie in the 51st minute to help the Montreal Impact beat the Philadelphia Union 2-1 on Wednesday night.
Dzemaili deked Union defender Giliano Wijnaldum on the edge of the box. The move put Dzemaili all alone on goal, and the Swiss international connected from close range.
Michael Salazar opened the scoring for Montreal (6-6-6) in the 19th minute in his second start of the season. Fafa Picault tied it for Philadelphia (6-8-5) in the 43rd.
Philadelphia appeared to have tied it in the 86th minute, but Roland Alberg’s volley was called back for offside.
