New England Revolution vs Toronto FC Prediction
While New England might have the benefit of home advantage, that could count for little against Toronto FC.
The visitors have been one of the most in-form teams in the MLS, with 13 points picked up from their last five matches.
Toronto showed great determination to come from an early goal down to pick up a victory against the equally-impressive Philadelphia Union last weekend and will likely continue their three-game winning run with another victory here.
