Our prediction for this MLS match:
BMO Field will host Thursday’s MLS game between Toronto and Columbus, the two teams who are level on points in the Eastern Conference. The Reds quickly bounced back from a 2-0 loss to New York Red Bulls, with the team beating Atlanta United 2-1 at the weekend, but they do not want to stop now. Teenager Ralph Priso-Mbongue, who scored the winner against the Five Stripes, is pushing for a rare start, while Noble Okello remains in the recovery room.
The Black and Gold, on the other hand, head into the match following back-to-back draws with Charlotte and Real Salt Lake. Columbus have already drawn five games on the road this season, and seeing that Toronto are tough to beat at home, the share of spoils is on the cards. As for the visiting team, Lucas Zelarrayan remains on the sidelines with a muscle problem.
