Maxim Tissot and Andres Romero scored and Montreal beat Columbus for its first road victory in 26 games.

It was Montreal’s first win away from home since beating New England on Sept. 8, 2013.

Tissot tapped in a rebound 10 minutes into the second half to start the scoring. Goalkeeper Steve Clark saved Jack McInerney’s hustle play and Tissot was there for the easy finish. Montreal made it 2-0 in the 79th minute when Romero chipped home a goal on a counter attack off a feed from Ignacio Piatti.

Montreal (4-4-2) won for the first time in Columbus in six attempts. Columbus (4-6-4) is winless in five games and has given up multiple goals in seven straight matches.

Federico Higuain scored for Columbus in second-half stoppage time.
