Errors doom Miami to defeat against Montreal

Inter Miami manager Diego Alonso was not happy with his team's 2-1 loss on Saturday as the club fell to the Montreal Impact at the Red Bull Arena in Harrison, New Jersey.

Miami had been rolling with some decent momentum having come into the game undefeated in their past three matches, having got the better of the Houston Dynamo and the New York Red Bulls and drawn with Atlanta United.

That had Miami, probably unrealistically, talking about making a run to get into the playoffs in the Eastern Conference.

Saturday's loss, however, leaves them third from bottom of the standings in the Eastern Conference, ahead of only FC Cincinnati and DC United.

Inter Miami return home next weekend to welcome in Orlando City SC before traveling to Frisco in Texas to take on FC Dallas.

"Unfortunately, I think that we made clear errors on the two goals we conceded, especially on the second goal when the match was even," Alonso said after the match in remarks posted to the Inter Miami official website.

"It was a match that either team could have won, we were close to converting our second goal. We couldn't afford to make any mistakes but we did and we ended up losing as a result.

"I didn't like how the team played in the first 25 minutes but after that the team adjusted and it became a back and forth match, and in the second half either team could have won."
