The BMO Field will host a thrilling duel for the 11th matchday of the MLS, where TFC's home advantage will seek to prevail against a strong opponent like FC Dallas.

Toronto FC enters this match on a quite positive streak, with 3 consecutive victories in their last 3 matches played, 2 in the MLS and 1 in the Canadian Championship.

The Moment for Each Team Leading to This Encounter

FC Dallas is experiencing a rather erratic moment in this stretch of the 2024 season, where the team visiting TFC currently sits in 13th position in the Western Conference, with only 8 points in 9 matches played. However, in their last match against Houston Dynamo, they managed to return to victory with a 2-0 win after going 7 games without a win.

For Toronto FC, this is a crucial moment in the season, where they have managed to string together an important sequence of victories, leaving them in a very positive position in the season. Although the squad led by John Herdman currently sits in 4th position in the MLS Eastern Conference, with 16 points in 10 matches, they have twice as many points as their opponent in this round, FC Dallas.

TFC vs Dallas: A Surprising History

The history between these two teams already has a significant record, where in the last 5 years they have played 11 matches. Unfortunately for Toronto, it's a rather negative record, with only 1 victory in these encounters, while Dallas already has 7 victories and there have been 3 draws between these two teams.

The record isn't very favorable for TFC, but it's important for The Reds to improve this streak in the match against Dallas, especially because they currently arrive in an unbeatable moment where it's expected that TFC, with home advantage, will have victory within their grasp, securing the 3 points to get closer and closer to the MLS powerhouse, Inter Miami, who with elite players like Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, and Sergio Busquets are the favorites in this conference, but Toronto aims to surprise.

This encounter will take place at 7:30 PM (Canada time), where the BMO Field will have a more than encouraging atmosphere to support and be a significant factor in the match for Toronto to continue adding another victory in this highly anticipated season for the club.
