Toronto vs New York Red Bulls – MLS: 2017 is the year for every trophy for Toronto FC…
Winning the Canadian Championship and the Major League Soccer regular stage, also known as Supporters’ Shield, Greg Vanney’s team went in full steam on these play-offs.
The opponent doesn’t suggest any facility; even more because of their great exhibition over that allowed them to overcome the Chicago Fire on the Knockout Round match.
But with a strategy designed to stop the Red Bulls from playing inside their block, stopping almost all the positive activity of Sacha Kljestean on that area of the field, Toronto FC have also shown their competitive side which is feared, managing to get a great efficiency taking advantage of the chances they created.
The first leg match was, this way, a statement of the goal scoring prowess that this Toronto’s attack has. Vitctor Vázquez and Giovinco scored the goals but Altidore and Michael Bradley’s role was also highlighted from the teamwork shown by the team.
Back home, with a 2-1 advantage, Toronto side needs to keep the rhythm until they score again, as a way to leave the Red Bulls at a comfortable distance.
The role chosen by Jesse Marsch for his team on the present season will be remarkable, regardless of the result here.
With clear limitations in terms of roster organization, with the need to renew the tactical behaviour of the team completely and to launch out reinforcements and some youngsters, the New York Red Bulls got through the regular stage, the first round of the play-offs and if they fall now, they will fall upon the strongest team in the MLS.
Toronto vs New York Red Bulls – Betting Tip and Prediction:
There will, still, be a small window of opportunity for the Red Bulls.
Even with Toronto scoring first, a goal might leave the contest very open.
It will be after that goal that Bradley Wright-Phillips, who is invisible at times, will be, just like a predator.
