Our prediction for this MLS match:
The 2018 MLS season has been a mixed bag for Toronto so far. The Reds have been having their ups and downs and, as a result, they have slim chances of booking their place in the play-offs. The reigning champions are unlikely to defend their trophy, but the hope dies last and we predict that they are going to leave their hearts on the field in Sunday’s football match against New England. Toronto outplayed LA Galaxy 5-3 in their last home game in MLS, which is giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of the Revs. New England, on the other hand, are undefeated in previous four league fixtures and, as a result, they remained in the race for the title. The Revs are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in Sunday’s clash, but seeing that Toronto a real force to be reckoned with at home, we are tempted to put our money on Jozy Altidore and Co.
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 (New England Revolution):
Unlike famous NFL club New England Patriots, the Revolution have yet to win the domestic trophy. New England participated five times in the MLS Cup final, but they were more than fortunate not to lift the silverware. The Revs played their last final in 2014, with the team losing to LA Galaxy in the title game at StubHub Center. New England Revolution, though, clinched the North American SuperLiga trophy in 2008 and that is considered as the club’s biggest success.
It has to be noted that the Revs defeated Houston Dynamo on penalties in the final of the tournament. New England Revolution were founded in 1994 and Gillette Stadium is the home ground of the club. Legendary defender Alexi Lalas played for the Revolution (1996-1997) and he scored three goals for the Gillette Stadium outfit. Fellow USA ace Clint Dempsey was part of the team as well and you should know that he netted 25 goals in 71 league appearances for the club.
