In this match for MLS Matchday 24, Columbus Crew demonstrated why they are one of the best teams in the league. Currently among the top positions in the Eastern Conference, they thoroughly dominated Toronto FC, delivering a heavy defeat at home. TFC was unable to counter Columbus Crew's strong possession game.

Throughout the match, it was evident that Columbus Crew never let up. Gradually, they created numerous goal-scoring opportunities, maintaining control of the game with their ball possession, which increasingly frustrated Toronto FC players.

A Match Full of Frustration for TFC

The first half saw only one goal, scored in the 15th minute by Cucho Hernández with a header following a corner kick. Additionally, a goal was disallowed by VAR in the 45th minute, sparing Toronto FC from an even worse result going into halftime.

However, at the start of the second half, Columbus Crew made it 2-0 in the 52nd minute with a goal from Cristian Ramírez, assisted by Cucho Hernández. In the final minutes of the match, Columbus Crew demonstrated their strength at home with two more goals: one from Mohamed Farsi in the 81st minute and another from Diego Rossi in the 84th minute.

The Reds Struggle in This Part of the Season

This match highlighted the significant problems Toronto FC is currently facing, both mentally and on the field. The frustration was visible among the players with each lost ball and poor decision-making. The opposing team was well aware of Toronto FC's struggles and capitalized on this to deliver a crushing blow.

Toronto FC had a poor showing, with little possession, very few shots on goal, and committing around 15 fouls. This was one of the worst performances of the season for TFC, who have suffered several heavy defeats as visitors.
