Both teams have already qualified for the MLS playoffs from the Eastern Conference, but positioning is at stake for both sides.
Toronto FC still can finish atop the Eastern Conference with a win in this game, provided that they win this game, and Philadelphia Union drop points against New England Revolution.
New York Red Bulls can finish as low as eighth in the MLS Eastern Conference, which would mean that they would have to play an extra round in the playoffs.
They are currently seventh in the table, and are three points behind New England Revolution. A swing is still possible to see New York Red Bulls finish in the top six in the MLS Eastern Conference.

Toronto FC have several players ruled out due to injury concerns.
Pablo Piatti being ruled out is obviously still a massive worry, but Chris Mavinga, Jozy Altidore, Alex Bono and Jonathan Orosio are all still unavailable for selection.
