After missing out on the opportunity to equal the MLS record for most consecutive regular-season matches without a defeat, Toronto will be looking to put the loss against Montreal behind them and kick off a new streak as they travel to the BC Place stadium to take on Vancouver Whitecaps.

Vancouver Whitecaps are bottom of the Western Conference and incidentally, they were also dealt a defeat in their last game by Montreal Impact. Vancouver have now lost three games in a row and they have also failed to score in four of their previous matches.

Toronto will be vying to put themselves back on track to book a berth in the Voyageurs Cup final.
