The third round of the 2017 MLS was full of thrillers as it had promised. You could easily tell this judging from the fact that most of these teams had not yet registered their first win of the season.
And so, week three witnessed some increased energy and tempo both in the Eastern and Western conferences.
Sounders, in particular, registered their first win of the season after beating New York Red Bulls 3-1 at the Century Link Field. This was also the first home game for the MLS Cup defending champions.
Then there was the Andrea Pirlo humiliation incident that took place when New York City FC took on Montreal Impact at the Yankee Stadium. The Italian legend was almost sent back to Italy for a slice of pizza and back to the Stateside for the game. Without further ado, here are some of the best highlights of the just-concluded third round of matches. Enjoy!
Week 3 had some skills.https://t.co/xZoohwP0iD— Major League Soccer (@MLS) March 20, 2017
