Toronto comes into this match with one foot out of the playoffs

Toronto FC isn't in the best condition for this matchday 9, as the team has accumulated 4 losses and only 1 victory in the last 5 matches played in the MLS. Positioned 9th in the Western group, they are currently outside the playoffs, where they should vie for qualification in a match against the 8th team in this group.

For this match on matchday 9, Toronto FC will face the bottom team on the table, New England Revolution, who are the Western team with only 4 points in 7 matches played in the MLS. The Reds have a 6-point advantage over this team and are in a perfect moment to secure 3 points and start climbing positions to enter the playoffs.

An exciting match between Toronto and New England for matchday 9

The history between these two teams is quite evenly matched over the last 5 years, during which they have contested 28 matches between Toronto and New England.

The Reds have won 9 matches (33%), New England has won 10 matches (35%), and there have been 9 draws (32%) in these 5 years. This has shown an exciting duel in recent matches, especially in the last encounter on March 3rd, where Toronto managed to win 1-0 away from home.

April 20th, is a crucial match for both clubs to climb positions seeking qualification for the playoffs, although the road is still too long to be certain of advancement to the next stage.

It is expected that Toronto will react to this match after the 3-2 defeat against Charlotte. Under the guidance of their coach, John Herdman, they have worked on the defensive errors experienced in that match, particularly in strengthening the team's defensive zone, addressing their weaknesses in the set-piece and direct play, which have always been the club's major weaknesses.

The strengthening of the club is expected to be reflected against New England, where at BMO Field, Toronto will hopefully bring joy to their fans and secure three points in this match, aiming to climb out of the ninth position in the MLS.
