Toronto FC host New York Red Bulls  at the BMO Field on Wednesday night, with both sides looking for an important three points in the MLS.

Toronto FC are the current leaders of the Eastern Conference, and also lead the race to win the MLS Supporters' Shield this season. That has been helped by their recent sensational form, which has seen them win five games in a row, and go seven games without a loss.

They have peaked at the right time this season, and have managed to capitalise on Columbus Crew's recent slip in form.

For the New York Red Bulls, it has been a season of mediocrity, even though they are in a playoff spot. They are 14 points off Toronto FC at the top of the table. They also had an important 1-0 win over Atlanta United in their last game after two consecutive losses before that.


Toronto FC vs New York Red Bulls Head-to-Head

New York Red Bulls have a superior head-to-head record over Toronto FC, having won 17 of the 34 matches the two teams have played against each other. Toronto FC have beaten New York Red Bulls 10 times, while these two teams have played seven draws against each other.
