Toronto FC vs Seattle Sounders: Preview and Prediction

Toronto FC vs Seattle Sounders:
MLS Regular Season,
Date: Sunday, July 3, 2016
Kick-off: 0:30 UK Time
Venue: BMO Field, Toronto (Ontario).

Toronto FC will face Seattle Sounders in the weekend MLS games on Sunday at BMO Field as the two teams looks forward to getting back to winning ways.

Toronto’s good run of form was put to halt last week at Orlando City as they were beaten 3-2 to end their 4 game unbeaten streak in all competitions. Toronto were unfortunate as they nearly earned a draw but a last minute terrible mistake but Toronto defender Josh as he gave away a penalty condemned them to defeat. Now they hope to get back to their feet as they host Seattle Sounders.

Seattle Sounders enter this fixture from a 2 game losing streak as they have lost to the two New York clubs ( New York Red Bulls and New York City FC ) in their last 2 games making it 5 defeats in their last 6 games in MLS. They have 16 points from 15 league games and are 9th on the Western Conference table. A win in this game will surely boost their morale and help turn their already fallen season around.
