Suarez on target as Miami fight back in Montreal


AFP, Montreal :
Inter Miami fought back from two goals down to win 3-2 at Montreal in Major League Soccer (MLS) on Saturday with Luis Suarez on target again as the league leaders won their fifth straight game.
Miami have made a habit of slow starts this season and they were caught cold yet again when Montreal took the lead in the 22nd minute to the delight of a capacity crowd.
Former Miami player Bryce Duke slipped the ball between the legs of Drake Callender after clever work from Jules-Anthony Vilsaint down the left.
Montreal thought they should have had a penalty when Mathieu Choiniere went down under a challenge from Marcelo Weigandt but referee Drew Fischer waved away the appeals.
Montreal had enjoyed an upset win in Florida against a weakened Miami team in March and another surprise looked on the cards when they went 2-0 up in the 32nd.
Vilsaint collected Ariel Lassiter’s sharp pull back from the left and showed great poise as he picked his spot with a side-foot finish into the far corner.
Lionel Messi briefly left the field for attention after a heavy challenge and while the Argentine was on the sidelines, his team won a free-kick in the area — where the World Cup winner can be so deadly.
In the absence of the eight-times Ballon d’Or winner, Paraguayan Matias Rojas took the free-kick and delivered a finish worthy of his captain, curling the ball over the wall and into the corner.
