FC Cincinatti will be looking for an improved result here after a 2-0 MLS defeat last time out to Minnesota United.
In that match, FC Cincinatti managed 59% possession and 16 attempts at goal with 4 on target. For their opponents, Minnesota United had 14 shots on goal with 4 on target. Kamara (16') and Molino (69') scored for Minnesota United.
An interesting trait of recent FC Cincinatti games is the number of results with a nil in them.
From their prior sextet of clashes before this one, in as many as 5 of them a bet on “Both Teams to Score” would have been a loser.
Toronto FC will go into this game following on from a 2-1 MLS win vs Philadelphia Union in their last match.
In that game, Toronto FC managed 57% possession and 13 shots on goal with 3 of them on target. For Toronto FC, the goalscorers were Akinola (58') and Pozuelo (76'). Philadelphia Union had 9 attempts on goal with 5 of them on target. Santos (5') scored for Philadelphia Union.
The numbers tell their own story, and Toronto FC have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, seeing their opponents hit 8 goals in all. In defence, The Reds have been far from perfect. That sort of pattern isn’t assured to be continued here, however.
Team News: FC Cincinatti
FC Cincinatti manager Jaap Stam will be grateful not to have any fitness concerns at all before this game thanks to a fully injury-free squad to pick from.
Team News: Toronto FC
Toronto manager Greg Vanney has to currently contend with reduced team options. Justin Morrow (Calf Strain), Michael Bradley (Medial Collateral Ligament Injury), Ifunanyachi Achara (Torn knee ligament) and Jozy Altidore (Hamstring Injury) won’t be making appearances.
We’re of the view that FC Cincinatti certainly have the ability to put one past this Toronto FC team, although just one goal possibly won’t quite prevent defeat.
We’re therefore tipping a close game with a 1-2 win for Toronto FC at full-time. It’s a very tough call.
