Toronto FC can move to the top of MLS Eastern Conference when they host New York City FC at the Rentschler Field on Wednesday at 23:30 (UK Time).
The hosts were on an amazing nine-game unbeaten streak in MLS prior to their terrible 5-0 loss on the road at Philadelphia Union last weekend. However, the Canadians are still tied on 41 points with the current Eastern Conference leaders, Philadelphia Union.
Toronto are now back at the BMO Field where they have lost just once in 10 league games so far this season. They are currently unbeaten in four home matches in MLS, having conceded just three goals in the process. In addition, Toronto FC have won two of their last three home meetings with New York City.
New York City, on the other hand, returned to winning ways in MLS last weekend after a poor run of results that had seen them drop to fifth position in the standings. The bad news is that New York City are still winless on the road at the moment and have only won once in their last five league trips.
Can Toronto FC extend their unbeaten home streak to five games? Or will New York City make back-to-back victories in the MLS for the second time this month?

Toronto’s injury list is a long one with no less than seven players sidelined. Ifunanyachi Achara, Jozy Altidore, Alex Bono and Chris Mavinga are all struggling with injuries. However, coach Greg Vanney can count on Eriq Zavaleta and Ayo Akinola, as both of them ended their quarantine period. Pablo Piatti is still a doubt ahead of this clash, as he suffered a calf injury prior to Toronto’s loss against Philadelphia Union. Auro is suspended.
Tayvon Gray, Heber, James Sands and Gedion Zelalem won’t play again this season for New York City. However, Maxime Chanot and Taty Castellanos will return to the squad after serving their suspensions last weekend. Maxi Moralez made his return to action with a goal against Montreal last weekend, so we might see him in the starting lineup here.
