12-6

In 630 total minutes of action in the all-time, regular-season series between the Crew and the Impact, the Black & Gold have outscored Montreal 12-6. Six players have found the net for the Crew with Dominic Oduro’s three tallies against the Impact in 2013 leading the way. Chad Marshall, Milovan Mirosevic and most recently Bernardo Anor have each scored two goals for Columbus in the series. The Black & Gold’s Argentine maestro Federico Higuaín leads the club with four assists against the Impact. In contrast, just three players have scored the six goals for the Impact -- four of those strikes have come from the foot of Designated Player Marco Di Vaio.
