The hosts come into this as pretty clear favourites after a dominant campaign they’ve had in the regular season, but one just can’t underestimate the reigning champions in another final.

Toronto

The Reds won the Supporters Shield Trophy by a 12-point margin, but they did not shine in the playoffs.

The Canadians went past New York Red Bulls only on an away goal rule before eliminating Columbus Crew 1-0 on aggregate in the conference final.

It was Jozy Altidore who made the difference netting the only goal of the rematch at BMO Field against the Crew and he will obviously be the main threat to Seattle’s goal this Saturday.

We should not forget the magnificent Italian striker Sebastian Giovinco who is the team’s leading scorer with 17 goals so far.

Seattle Sounders

Sounders got off to a slow start to the season back in March and some experts even predicted them to be below the line come playoffs.

Nonetheless, the team led by Brian Schmetzer significantly raised the level of their game in the second part of the season and we can actually say they’ll head into this as the form favourites.

The Sounders have not conceded a single goal in the playoffs as they dispatched Vancouver Whitecaps 2-0 on aggregate before destroying Houston Dynamo 5-0 on aggregate in the conference finals.

Toronto vs Seattle Sounders: Head to head

Last term’s final saw a goalless draw in both regular time and extra time, but Seattle Sounders went on to clinch the silverware after penalty shootout.

The two sides met in early-May in this term when Toronto picked up a narrow 0-1 win at CenturyLinkField.

Toronto vs Seattle Sounders: Prediction

The bookies see the Canadians as favourites, but we see the value in backing Sounders to go all the way once again as they’ve been really super impressive so far in the playoffs.

The best shout would, however, be going for a low-scoring contest which can be backed at 1.66 odds.

Toronto vs Seattle Sounders: Bet Tips

The top bet is Under 2.5 goals FT at the odds of 1.66.

You can also have Seattle Sounders to lift the trophy at 2.75.
