Violette became the first Haitian team to eliminate an MLS team from the Concachampions
Thanks to the 3-2 aggregate obtained, Violette reached the quarterfinals of the Concachampions, despite losing 2-0 in their visit to Q2 Stadium, home of Austin FC.
Austin received Violette at the Q2 Stadium, a sports venue where the local team won 2-0, but was left out due to the 2-3 global win in favor of the Haitian team that gave the United States a hit by eliminating the team from the Major League Soccer, something that is seen for the first time in history for a team founded in Haiti.
The American team came out with everything, in search of the three goals that would equalize the series, something that motivated Austin to score the first by Sebastián Driussi at 25' . However, after reviewing the play in VAR, the score was canceled and the score remained 0-0.
With this blow received, Austin continued his commitment and again managed to shake the nets. Once again Driussi was in charge of scoring with a right-footed shot from the center of the area after receiving the ball from Emiliano Rigoni from the corner kick. 1-0 at 51'.

Later, Driussi again shot on goal, this time with his head, from the center of the area and ended up entering the ball slowly, near the left post, after the poor performance of the Violette goalkeeper. On this occasion, the person in charge of assisting the scorer was Alexander Ring.

However, with the score set at 2-0 at 63', Austin still had a long way to go to achieve the somersault, and although they tried until the final minute, the MLS team failed to score again and ended up being eliminated from the Concachampions.
“For the FIRST TIME in the ENTIRE history of the highest Concacaf club competition, a team from Haiti has eliminated a rival from North America in a double match (United States+Mexico+Canada)”, MisterChip announced in networks, thus a historic result seen in Q2.
