Both teams come from the Eastern Conference but the home teams stands much better in the table. NYC is the leading team and has 53 points, which is the second best result in the whole league, while Toronto underperformed and occupies only the 5th place in the Conference having even 22 points fewer than their hosts. Still, Toronto outclassed NCY in their first match this season by 4-0.
New York City
NY City deservedly occupies the leading position in the Eastern Conference, as they play very good this season and are doing especially well recently. They have five-game winning streak and have been undefeated for more than a month although they haven’t received a goal in only one of those five matches. The attack is definitely the strongest part of the team and it is evident that they play much better at home where they lost only once. It is interesting that the NY City started the season with five draws and a defeat but then they went into a long last series of unbeaten matches. The team’s first scorer Heber got injured two rounds ago and he didn’t play in match with New England that NYC won by 2-1.
More was expected from Toronto given they are the reigning champions. They play modestly almost from the start of the season and had even one eight-game winless streak. Consequently, they couldn’t expect to be better positioned than the 5th place in the Eastern Conference and they yet have to qualify for the play-offs by the end of the regular season. They play a bit better lately and right now they have five-game unbeaten streak that includes three draws. In the previous round they won Cincinnati away by sound 5-1 and they did so without help of the team’s first scorer Altidore and with sent off Zavaleta.
Overall, NY City does far better this season and right now they are in good shape but Toronto improved lately and is capable to fight back. Both teams have good attacks and we forecast a goal fest.
