Toronto FC – Columbus Crew : Preview & Prediction
Toronto and Columbus Crew meet on Thursday night to clinch the title of East Major League Soccer champion. Beyond this honorary title, the challenge is also huge: to qualify for the grand final MLS against Seattle or Houston. Unable to decide on the field of Columbus in the first leg (0-0) the two franchises will have no choice this time in Canada. Back from suspension, will Altidore and Giovinco start the TFC to get closer to a title of champions of the United States?
In the first leg, Columbus was unable to make a difference as the top two players from Toronto were absent.
Authors of 42% goals of their team this season, Giovinco and Altidore will this time be present on the lawn.
Toronto has won 6 of its last 8 games played at home in MLS.
Columbus has won only 4 of his last 18 trips, 8 defeats and 6 draws.
The last 2 duels between the two clubs in Canada have been complicated for the Crew: defeats 5-0 and 2-0.
The Toronto franchise is too strong at home and experienced to miss out on Columbus. Recording the returns of Giovinco and Altidore, Greg Vanney’s men should not be let go by those of Berhalter. Our experts are banking on a Toronto success in this game!
