Following the injury suffered by the Italian footballer in the match between Toronto FC and Atlanta United on March 23rd, he has missed approximately 8 games, during which TFC has managed to overcome adversity without one of the club's key figures.

In these 8 games that Lorenzo Insigne has missed due to his recent injury, the subsequent 3 matches played by TFC ended in defeat. However, after those MLS losses, The Reds have secured 5 consecutive victories, both in MLS and the Canadian Championship, showcasing themselves as a team that has gained significant stature.

For the match at BMO Field between Toronto FC and New York City, John Herdman has regained one of his main players for this fixture. It is likely that Lorenzo Insigne will start from the bench and may get some minutes in the match, depending on his physical condition and the progress of the game.

In an exciting preview of this encounter in the Eastern Conference, TFC wants to continue closing the gap with Inter Miami, who, with one more match played, are only 4 points ahead of Toronto FC, currently sitting in 3rd place in the Eastern Conference. On the other hand, New York City wants to climb the standings to secure a spot in the playoffs, as they currently sit in 7th position in this conference.

TFC fans are excited about Insigne's return, as with the team's current positive streak, they hope the Italian will be another key piece for John Herdman throughout this season. Together with Federico Bernardeschi and the club's current top scorer, Pirnce Owusu, they aim to form an offensive trio that dominates both the MLS and the Canadian Championship.
