It's a tough week for Toronto FC as competitions leave them no rest, and they're already gearing up for their next match in April.

Toronto FC enters a challenging moment of the season as they prepare for this championship. Although John Herdman's team secured a narrow 1-0 victory in their last MLS match against New England Revolution, it marks a positive result after a string of negative performances that led to consecutive defeats in the league.

Currently sitting in 5th place, The Reds are relatively comfortable in a playoff position, but their concern lies in maintaining their position in the Eastern group. The team faces a significant worry after nine rounds, holding a goal difference of -3 and ranking among the lowest-scoring teams this season, averaging just one goal per game.

Toronto FC's debut in the Canadian Championship is approaching

However, this week, they must focus not only on the MLS but also on their debut in the first round of the Canadian Championship against Simcoe County Rovers FC. Toronto FC aims to gain an advantage in this match as securing a victory is crucial to their quest to reclaim the championship.

John Herdman commented on the upcoming match on April 24th: “You can’t take your eye off this type of opponent. For this opponent, we know the occasion will increase their motivation perhaps by 10 levels.”

This Wednesday, we anticipate an exciting match for The Reds, with hopes that captain Jonathan Osorio and top scorer Prince Owusu will be in prime condition to lead the team to victory at BMO Field.
