Solignac pulled one back with a shot from the small area, but Mendoza, with a goal to pass Villa, again put the advantage of two goals for New York City. Still the second goal of Villa was absent. Guaje collected the ball on the right edge of the area and put the far post with an excellent left-footed shot.
His 19th goal of the season and both which already exceeds last year's registration. Vieira was full of praise to his performance after the match: "He is the team captain, is the team leader and I think his performance tonight is one of the best I've seen."
