Raul Ruidiaz was sent off by CFM, scoring a brilliant goal on a half-volley that Jonathan Sirruis was unable to stop.

Joel Waterman committed CFM's first foul a few minutes later. Central defender Rusnak tripped in the penalty area. The referee awarded the penalty kick after reviewing VAR. Ruidiaz scored his second goal in the match with a powerful shot on the left side from Sirius.

Montreal XI's best chance came in the 37th minute. On a corner kick, Joaquin Sosa, who was playing his first minutes in the blue, white and black uniform, thought he had blocked Stefan Frei with a header, but the goalkeeper made a great save to preserve the score.
