Our football match prediction:
Toronto will be looking to record their eighth consecutive win at home in MLS when they welcome Colorado Rapids at their BMO Field this weekend. The Reds have been producing thrilling performances this season and they are determined to regain the domestic trophy. Experienced attacker Jozy Altidore doesn’t represent USA at the 2017 Gold Cup and he will be one of the men to watch in the home team. Sebastian Giovinco is enjoying yet another successful season and seeing that Toronto scored nine goals in previous three home games in MLS, we predict that the hosts will pick up all three points from Sunday’s football match. Colorado Rapids suffered a loss in each of their last seven away games in the Major League Soccer and considering that the visitors failed to score in four of their last five matches on the road, they are unlikely to spoil Toronto’s party at BMO Field.
Highlighted Player (Sebastian Giovinco):
Sebastian Giovinco is the Italian football ace who plays for Toronto FC as a forward. His side position is attacking midfielder and he is undisputedly the team’s key player. Giovinco began his senior career at Juventus and he played for the likes of Empoli and Parma on loan during his spell at Serie A as well. The 162-cm tall footballer joined Toronto on January 19, 2015 and he has been playing for the Canadian outfit ever since. Giovinco scored 21 goals in 34 league fixtures in the 2016 MLS campaign and he is likely to play an important role in Greg Vanney’s team in the 2017 season. The Italian star made his debut for the Azzurri on February 9, 2011 in a 1-1 draw with Germany in Dortmund and it has to be noted that he won a silver medal with Italy national football team at the 2012 European Championship. Sebastian Giovinco was born in Turin on January 26, 1987 and in May 2013 his wife Shari gave birth to their first child Jacopo.
Highlighted Team (Colorado Rapids):
Colorado Rapids are a Major League Soccer club and they compete in the USA professional soccer league as a member of the Western Conference. Colorado began their play in MLS back in 1996 and 14 years later they managed to win the MLS Cup trophy. The Rapids recorded a 2-1 win over FC Dallas in the final of the tournament, with George John scoring the winner for Gary Smith’s team in the extra time. Colorado made it to the MLS Cup final in 1997 as well, but D.C. United proved to be a big catch for the club in the title game. The Rapids play their home games at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park and the venue has been Colorado’s home ground since 2007. It has to be noted that the likes of Tim Howard, Carlos Valderama, Claudio Lopez and Jermaine Jones were all part of the club in the past. Colorado’s colours are red, sky blue and white, but they were yellow shirts and blue shorts when playing on the travels.
