The Reds are five points away from the top-six and they’ll need the continuation of a positive thread in order to keep the play-offs hopes alive.

Maintaining the fine spell of form will be quite a serious challenge for the hosts on Sunday when they take on conference rivals New York City at BMO Field.

NYCFC sit third in the ladder being four points short of Atlanta United at the top, but they have a game in hand on last year’s debutants, meaning a win here could narrow the gap for them.

Toronto vs New York City: Head-to-head

  • Teams have three wins apiece coming into their 11th head to head meeting.
  • Both sides picked up home wins when they net in the previous term of MLS.
  • Three or more goals were seen in each of last four head to head games.
  • Toronto won 2, drew 1 and lost 1 of 4 home games against the Pigeons.

Toronto vs New York City: Prediction

The Reds come into this after playing a 2-2 draw away from home in the Canadian Championship final against Vancouver Whitecaps in mid-week.

Jonathan Osorio was the goal-scorer for Toronto apart from Henry’s own goal which gave them the equalizer in the sixth minute of the stoppage time at BC Place Stadium.

Sebastian Giovinco was rested for this important league tie. The Italian striker notched one of team’s two goals in a draw to Atlanta United last weekend and he is our top suggestion for the anytime goalscorer bet for the hosts here.

The Atomic Ant and Jozy Altidore should both have plenty of room to create in the final third here knowing that the Pigeons were pretty easy to break down recently.

The visitors conceded five goals in last two league games, a streak which saw them take just one point from matches against Seattle Sounders and Vancouver Whitecaps.

We expect the hosts to keep the good form going and pick up the victory in what should really be a high-scoring affair.
