Philadelphia Union vs Toronto FC Prediction
Despite winning in just 1 of their last 7 games, Philadelphia can be counted as a strong home team as they are unbeaten in the last 6 here with 4 wins and 2 draws.
Historically, they struggle against Toronto FC, but the Canadian outfit is way below their usual best, simply do not have the players or bench strength to pick positive results in a stretch.
Though, their form has been a revelation since the 7-1 defeat at DC United, are on an unbeaten run since with 2 wins and 3 draws. However, all these five games saw goals at both ends.
We have no doubt that Philadelphia is the better team in this contest and they are overwhelming favourites to win here, but expect another strong display from the visiting side.
