For this April 24th, the appointment for TFC will be at BMO Field, where the match for their debut in this Canadian championship will be filled with emotions and good football from both clubs. For this match, here are the 3 key points that The Reds will have to secure victory:

1. Prince Owusu's scoring form

For the German footballer, his time is now. With outstanding performances in the MLS this season, Owusu has become Toronto FC's top scorer, with 4 goals already in this MLS season. The 27-year-old has played in all 9 matches TFC has played so far, starting in 5 of them.

His confidence in front of goal keeps growing, and it is expected that he can continue his scoring streak, having scored consecutively in the last 2 MLS matches. It is hoped that on April 24th, the 27-year-old forward will score his 5th goal of the 2024 season for TFC.

2. Federico Bernardeschi is hungry for goals

For the Italian, this season's start has been challenging. Although his prolific goal-scoring ability has not been seen this season, despite having played 9 matches in the MLS this year, his goal contribution is not reflected even in assists provided.

Furthermore, the 30-year-old is on a negative streak after missing a penalty in the last match against New England Revolution in the 76th minute of the match. However, Bernardeschi is eager to contribute to The Reds, and this debut in the Canadian championship could be the right way to wake up in front of goal and continue adding joy to Toronto fans.

3. Sean Johnson is the guarantee under Toronto FC's goal

For coach John Herdman, having the American footballer in his club has been a great reassurance between the posts for TFC. Although the 34-year-old goalkeeper has just had an incredible performance against New England, keeping his goal intact, the MLS highlighted him as the best goalkeeper of the matchday, leaving a feeling of reassurance for Toronto FC fans.

These 3 footballers have provided impeccable assurance for The Reds, where, despite ups and downs, their responsibility on the field stands out greatly, and it is expected that April 24th will be no exception for their debut in the Canadian championship.
