CHESTER, Pa. (AP) — Marco Di Vaio scored in the 80th minute, helping the Montreal Impact rally for a 1-1 draw against the Philadelphia Union on Saturday.
Montreal (0-3-1) received a boost with the return of the 37-year-old Di Vaio, who scored 20 goals last season. The forward received a red card during the Impact’s playoff game against the Houston Dynamo and was subsequently suspended for the first three games this season.
Vincent Nogueira scored his first career goal for the Union (1-1-2) on a cold, rainy afternoon. He received a crisp pass from Jack McInerney and sent the ball past Montreal goalkeeper Troy Perkins in the 35th minute.
The Union have struggled offensively, scoring just four goals through the first four games.
Montreal forward Andrew Wenger received a red card in the 76th minute, and the club finished the game with 10 men. But the Impact kept pushing and Di Vaio managed to tie the game.
Montreal has trailed at halftime in all four games.
