Toronto FC vs New England Revolution
Major League Soccer
Date: Saturday, 24th June 2017
Kick off at 01:00 UK/ 02:00 CET
Venue: BMO Field.
Eastern Conference leaders will have to justify the favourite tag this Saturday when they host New England in between Canadian Championship Finals legs with Montreal Impact.
Greg Vanney is thus expected to mix up his lineup a bit before the rematch with Montreal nex week.
The Reds continued their impressive form on the home patch where they claimed seventh consecutive win last weekend against DC United.
Jozy Altidore and Jordan Hamilton were on target in a 2-0 win which marked the third consecutive clean sheet for Vanney’s side.
Altidore found the net in mid-week’s 1-1 draw with Montreal Impact, but he will most likely skip the league clash with Revolution.
New England have been struggling a lot defensively ever since the start of the new MLS season.
Jay Heaps’ men allowed at least two goals in each of their last five games on the road.
To make things worse, Revolution conceded two on the home pitch as well in the last weekend’s defeat to in-form Chicago Fire.
Toronto vs New England: Head to head
New England have been a tricky opponent for Toronto over the years as they lad the head to head tie by six wins ahead of their 26th encounter with the Reds.
The Eastern Conference rivals have already played each other two times so far in the year as home teams clinched convincing wins by three goals difference.
The latest of their meetings took place just three weeks ago when Angoua, Fagundez and Agudelo were on target in a comprehensive 3-0 victory for New England at Gillette Stadium.
Toronto vs New England: Prediction
Toronto are massive favourites without doubts, but you should be careful with the stakes since Vanney will likely rest Altidore and Giovinco for the second leg of Canadian Championship Finals.
Anyhow, we still expect a high-scoring affair since the visitors are just disastrous at the back.
