Toronto will be looking to bridge the gap on New York City on Saturday night.
Toronto FC v Philadelphia Union- Saturday 22:00, Sky Sports 3
Toronto top the Eastern Conference by two points and have a game in hand on the three sides behind them. One of those is Philadelphia in 4th, whose playoff spot looks secure, though they’ll be looking to bridge the four point gap to New York City.
Toronto’s home record this term is W7-D4-L2, with five of those wins in their last seven, while five of their victories were without conceding. What’s more, they’ve won all four of their clashes with Philadelphia since the start of last season, leading at the break in each of these wins, though keeping just one clean sheet.
Indeed, Philadelphia have netted in 10 of their last 12 on the road, but have lost five of their last eight, despite the fact that only three of these were against top-five sides. As a result, we’re backing Toronto to Win and Both Teams to Score and we expect them to maintain their lead at the top of the Eastern Conference.
