Gustavo Bou’s 95th-minute winner settled a thrilling MLS play-off clash as New England Revolution prevailed 2-1 against Thierry Henry’s Montreal Impact on Friday.

Bou struck at the death in the play-in match at Gillette Stadium, where the Revolution earned a date with Philadelphia Union in the opening round of the MLS Cup play-offs.

The Argentine forward’s goal came on his eighth shot of the match, the most by a Revolution player in a play-off match in club history, per Opta.

Bou’s match-winning effort – officially timed at 94 minutes, 37 seconds – is New England’s latest winning goal since Kelyn Rowe at 95:47 in 2017.

The tie was level after Montreal’s Romell Quioto cancelled out Carles Gil’s 38th-minute opener just past the hour mark – the Impact scoring in 21 consecutive away matches (including play-off games), the longest streak in MLS history.

In the day’s other play-in fixture, Nashville eased past David Beckham’s Inter Miami 3-0.

In a battle of the 2020 expansion sides, Nashville progressed to face Toronto thanks to goals from Randall Leal, Hany Mukhtar and Dax McCarty.

A two-goal first half, fuelled by Leal and Mukhtar, set the tone as Nashville became the first true expansion team to win a play-off match since Chicago Fire in 1998, according to Opta.
