Toronto FC vs Minnesota United
Major League Soccer 2017
Date: 13th May 2017, Saturday
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: BMO Field, Toronto.
Toronto had some troublesome weeks at the start of the 2017 MLS campaign as they struggled to get the deserved results. Their first six matches produced just 1 win and 4 draws, while suffering a lone defeat. Right now, they are a totally different proportion after picking 5 wins on the bounce. They are the red hot team at the moment as the latest two wins came away from home.
TFC are unbeaten at the BMO field this season with 3 wins and 2 draws from the 5 outings so far. Also, they are the best away side in the league with a record of 3 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss from 6 matches. Their recent run of form lifted them up to top of the Western Conference table with 22 points from 11 games.
The new franchise team Minnesota United can be satisfied with the start to the life in MLS. They were win-less in the first four rounds after managing just 1 point during the period. Since April, they been more cynical in their approach and raked in 3 wins from the next 6, also picked up a draw while losing twice.
At home, Minnesota have done okay. They away form is what eluded them. They are win-less after five road trips and conceded a heavy 16 goals during the process. However, they are the worst defense in the MLS after letting in 25 goals from their 11 games so far.

Toronto FC vs Minnesota United: Prediction
There is no doubt that Toronto are on a red hot streak and the punters must not hesitate to back them for a convincing win here. The value is in going for half-time/full-time wins for the hosts or simply just a first half win.
On the other hand, TFC scored at least 2 goals in their last 10 MLS home games. While Minnesota conceded a minimum of 2 goals in each of their 5 away games so far this season. It will be also beneficial to back Toronto to net at least twice here.
