In an exciting match for Week 10 of the MLS, Toronto FC will have to travel for the showdown against Orlando City, seeking to claim all 3 points to continue competing in the MLS this season and qualify for the playoffs after two chaotic years for the club.

In the 2024 season, TFC has shown itself to be a highly competitive team with fundamental pieces currently delivering positive results for the club in every match and, above all, presenting a better face to their fans to face the season. For this reason, The Reds have these 3 aspects:

1. Confidence gained in the last two matches

For The Reds, the last two matches played this season have resulted in victories. On April 20th, they defeated New England Revolution 1-0 at the BMO Field with a superb goal by Prince Owusu.

On April 24th, they also managed to rout Simcoe Country 5-0 in the Canadian Championship, where rotations in the second half slowed down the pace of the game, but this did not prevent them from achieving a resounding victory over the League 1 team.

2. The team's goal-scoring weapons

For Toronto FC, there is a variety of players contributing to the team's goals, but the standout player is Prince Owusu, who has scored 4 goals in the last 3 matches, and it is expected that his streak will continue.

Also, their captain Jonathan Osorio can have an influential role in the team's offense both as a scorer and a provider. Additionally, Federico Bernardeschi has yet to score this season, and it is possible that this goal drought for the Italian may end against Orlando City.

3. Seeking confidence as visitors

TFC has only managed to win one away game this season against New England Revolution on March 3rd. However, in the other 4 away games, they have suffered 3 defeats and 1 draw, indicating a poor away form this season.

Therefore, this match is ideal for breaking the negative streak they are experiencing as visitors this season, and what better way to do it than by defeating Orlando City? It is expected that John Herdman's team will field their strongest lineup for this match, and the entire squad will give 100% effort to secure victory in this new MLS match.
