Our prediction for this MLS match:
Gillette Stadium will host Sunday’s football game between New England and Toronto, the two teams who are eyeing a place in the MLS play-offs. The Revs recorded a 2-1 win over Chicago Fire at the weekend, with the team putting an end to their three-game winless run in the league, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in the clash against Toronto.
The Reds have been showing signs of improvement of late and they must be high on confidence ahead of the trip to Massachusetts as they emerged triumphant in the all-Canadian clash against Montreal Impact at the weekend. Anyhow, the two teams seem to be evenly matched at the moment and we predict that they are going to play out a draw in Foxborough. Experienced attacker Jozy Altidore is likely to lead the line for the visitors, whilst Toronto defenders should have Spanish midfielder Carles Gil at bay.
Highlighted Player (Antonio Delamea Mlinar):
Antonio Delamea Mlinar is a Slovenian footballer who plays for New England Revolution in MLS. Milnar was born in Celje, Slovenia on 10 June, 1991 and his main position is centre back. The New England Revolution defender played for the likes of Celje, Sampion, Aluminij and Interblock during his youth career and he signed his first professional contract with Interblock senior team.
Mlinar scored one goal in 23 league appearances for “the Gamblers” from 2008 to 2011 and in 2011 he joined Slovenian giants Olimpija Ljubljana. He played an important role in the capital club for seven years, but in 2017 he decided to take a step forward in his career.
Mlinar signed a deal with New England Revolution in January, 2017 and he has been playing for the Revs ever since. He made his debut for the Slovenia national team against Poland in November, 2016, replacing Miral Samardzic in the second half of the match.
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.
