Our prediction for this MLS match:
Following back-to-back defeats to Cincinnati and New England Revolution, Charlotte will look to keep their playoffs hopes alive when they take on Toronto on Thursday. Charlotte face a must-win situation and we are positive that they will go all-out attack in the midweek clash. Both Ben Bender and Vinicius Mello are sidelined with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the home team.
The Reds, on the other hand, are having a season to forget, with the team sitting in the rock-bottom position with only 22 points on their account. As Charlotte are desperate to pick up all three points from the match, we predict that the Canadian outfit will return home empty-handed. Deandre Kerr is a major doubt after limping off with injury in a 3-2 loss to Cincinnati, with all Servania, Johnson, Ranjitsingh, and Diomande remaining in the recovery room.
Highlighted Team (Toronto FC):
Toronto is a club based in Canada, but they have been competing in Major League Soccer since 2007. Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment own both the soccer club and National Hockey League’s Toronto Maple Leafs. BMO Field is the club’s home ground and the capacity of the stadium is 30.000.
The Canadian outfit impressed in the 2016 MLS Cup and they faced Seattle Sounders in the title game at BMO Field. However, the Canadians were more than unfortunate not to lift the silverware as they were beaten by the Sounders on penalties.
Speaking of the Canadian Championship, Toronto FC won their fifth domestic title in 2016, with the team beating Vancouver Whitecaps in the final of the tournament. Montreal Impact are considered the club’s biggest rivals and there have always been fireworks in meetings between the two Canadian sides. Toronto FC’s home kit is red and it is no surprise they are nicknamed the Reds. It has to be noted that the club was founded back in 2005.
