Our prediction for this MLS match:
All eyes will be on BMO Field when Toronto and Inter Miami face each other in the Major League Soccer on Wednesday morning. The Reds were anything but good on their road trip, with the team losing each of their last four away games, but they are surely capable of matching Inter Miami at home ground. Midfielder Noble Okello returns from suspension, while all Akinola, Altidore, and Priso-Mbongue are out of contention with injuries.
Inter Miami, on the other hand, continue to rely on veteran attacker Gonzalo Higuain, who scored the winner against Columbus Crew at the weekend. Phil Neville’s troops have been showing signs of improvement of late, but beating Toronto on the road is easier said than done. Taking everything into account, the share of spoils is on the cards in Canada. All Gibbs, Jones, Fray, and Alvarado are likely to miss the game with injuries for the visiting team.
Highlighted Player (Laurent Ciman):
Laurent Ciman is a Belgium international who plays for Montreal Impact in Major League Soccer. The defender who was born in Farciennes on August 5, 1985 played for Charleroi from 2004 to 2008 and he made no less than 85 league appearances for the Belgian outfit.
During the 2007/2008 season he was on Club Brugge’s radar and in the summer of 2008 he joined the Blauw-Zwart. After ending his loan spell with Kortijk Laurent Ciman joined fellow Belgian club Standard Liege and he spent five seasons at Stade Maurice Dufrasne. On January 22, 2015 the defender signed a three-year contract with MLS club Montreal Impact and he has been playing for the Canadian outfit ever since.
Ciman represented Belgium at the 2008 Olympics and he did remarkably well to make Belgium 2014 FIFA World Cup squad. However, he was unused at the showpiece tournament in Brazil. The Montreal Impact footballer scored his first ever goal for Belgium in June, 2016 in a 3-2 victory over Norway.
