New England (@2.0) vs Toronto FC (@3.4)

Our Prediction:

New England will win

New England – Toronto FC Match Prediction | 29-08-2019 19:30

The visitors have won just one of their last 16 MLS away matches, and their last 11 have resulted in seven defeats. Toronto FC, for all their faults last season, have still picked up three points in four of their last six MLS games at BMO Field. For this reason, backing a Toronto FC win looks a great option this weekend along with a 3-1 correct score prediction.

It has to be noted that the Revs defeated Houston Dynamo on penalties in the final of the tournament. Legendary defender Alexi Lalas played for the Revolution (1996-1997) and he scored three goals for the Gillette Stadium outfit. Fellow USA ace Clint Dempsey was part of the team as well and you should know that he netted 25 goals in 71 league appearances for the club. New England Revolution were founded in 1994 and Gillette Stadium is the home ground of the club.

After ending his loan spell with Kortijk Laurent Ciman joined fellow Belgian club Standard Liege and he spent five seasons at Stade Maurice Dufrasne. During the 2007/2008 season he was on Club Brugges radar and in the summer of 2008 he joined the Blauw-Zwart. On January 22, 2015 the defender signed a three-year contract with MLS club Montreal Impact and he has been playing for the Canadian outfit ever since.

Previous Meetings

The form of both clubs is identical over the last six matches with each picking up three wins, two draws, and just a single defeat but New England have a strong home record against their guests and in the MLS of late, which should prove enough for the hosts to claim all three points this weekend. Were confident that Sundays match will see both teams score and produced over 2.5 goals and we have predicted a final scoreline of 2-1 in favour of New England.

Torontos last two matches have seen both teams score and over 2.5 goals and the Canadians have won just one of their last nine away games in the MLS. The form performances of both clubs over the last month or so also suggest we will be in for a decent amount of goal on Sunday and a home win, as New England have won three of their last six matches, two of which have arrived at home, and their last five matches have seen both teams score and over 2.5 goals.

Toronto were idle in Week 2 after opening the season with an impressive 3-1 road victory over the Philadelphia Union, while the Revs followed a 1-1 draw at FC Dallas with a 2-0 defeat to Columbus Crew SC in their home opener last Saturday.

Toronto FCs home kit is red and it is no surprise they are nicknamed the Reds. Montreal Impact are considered the clubs biggest rivals and there have always been fireworks in meetings between the two Canadian sides. It has to be noted that the club was founded back in 2005. Speaking of the Canadian Championship, Toronto FC won their fifth domestic title in 2016, with the team beating Vancouver Whitecaps in the final of the tournament.

New England Revolution, though, clinched the North American SuperLiga trophy in 2008 and that is considered as the clubs biggest success. The Revs played their last final in 2014, with the team losing to LA Galaxy in the title game at StubHub Center. New England participated five times in the MLS Cup final, but they were more than fortunate not to lift the silverware. Unlike famous NFL club New England Patriots, the Revolution have yet to win the domestic trophy.
