MLS is heading in the second half of their season, with tight races around the league including and a much anticipated battle this midweek between two cross-Canadian rivals. The Vancouver Whitecaps seek revenge as they take on Toronto FC, a club that delivered them a tough loss in the Canadian Championship earlier this season. The Whitecaps return to BMO Field, the site of the loss in May, and look to continue the woes of a TFC that has been at the bottom of the league for the entire season.
This is the third time the two clubs will meet this year, but the first and only MLS meeting. In Vancouver the Whitecaps drew 1-1 the first leg of the competition, and fell in Toronto 1-0 during the decisive second match.
Still, the club from B.C. has done well in league play this year, sitting in fourth position in the west with 30 points through 18 games, with a game in hand on third-place Seattle, and two games more to be played than second place Real Salt Lake, a club up on them by six points.
They have eight wins on the year, and are looking to continue a two-game unbeaten stretch and a string of matches that have seen the Whitecaps lose just once in their last eight. They continue playing on the road, their fourth of five straight matches away from Vancouver.
Toronto meanwhile, is looking to rebound from a tough 3-0 loss to Philadelphia, a club they were hoping to catch in the standings. They have just two wins on the year and a handful of draws, remaining with 10 points in the bottom of the eastern conference. Before the loss, TFC was able to put together a positive streak, going unbeaten in five straight.
Betting lines: Vancouver will be favoured as they are ahead in the standings, and they surely have something to prove heading back out to BMO Field. Regardless of the way the season has played out, TFC will play hard and the home field will be a role. TFC upset Vancouver as they did earlier this year, winning 2-1.
