For matchday 21 of the MLS, Toronto FC will host Nashville at BMO Field, looking to break their winless streak in recent matches.

In this new encounter between these two teams, Toronto FC comes into the match with a streak of four games without a victory, accumulating two draws and two losses. Meanwhile, Nashville comes off a 0-0 draw against New York RB, in a match with few thrills.

A month ago (May 15), these two teams faced off at Nashville's home, where TFC was defeated 2-0 in a game where they did not field their top players, Bernardeschi and Insigne.

What Can We Expect from This Match?

With Toronto FC hurt by recent results, TFC is expected to go all out on the field, recovering two important players for the starting lineup after serving suspensions in the previous match. Federico Bernardeschi and Nicksoen Gomis will be available.

But Nashville is not to be underestimated. The fight for the playoffs in the Eastern Conference is tighter than ever, and anyone can make it. Therefore, it is likely that the visitors will take the field and try to withstand the ball possession that TFC is known for and counterattack to exploit the weak defense Toronto FC has shown in recent matches.

It has not been a positive period for Toronto FC, especially after the heavy defeat to Chicago Fire on June 15, where the team looked defensively shattered, raising several concerns for the upcoming part of the season. They will need to work and consider whether to continue using a back three.

On June 19, we will see the strategies proposed by John Herdman, and it is expected to showcase a more collective defensive effort. Offensively, both team play and individual brilliance are anticipated to help put the team ahead and secure three points from the match.
