Are you smarter than Paul Mariner: Round 9

Mid-week Voyageur's Cup action as TFC go cross-country to Vancouver with a 2-1 lead. Slim lead but a lead none the less. What's your prediction?

Martin Bazyl

We would all feel a little bit better if TFC hadn’t conceded the late away goal to Vancouver’s youth inspired squad last week but we can’t do anything about that now. As TFC head to Vancouver for the second leg of the Voyageur’s Cup semi-final with the slimmest of margins a solid defensive performance can secure a trip to the final. Ryan Nelsen will have more lineup questions this week than he did last week. With the bye week in the league TFC could throw out a full squad at home without the worry of fatigue for the next match. This week an important date with New York lies in wait on Saturday so Nelsen may have an eye towards the league.


Vancouver has been strong at home this season and will look at the score line with hope and belief that they can get past Toronto. Kekuta Menneh has been incredible this season. His performance was the main reason why Carl Robinson and Co. thought they could walk away from DP Kenny Miller. TFC nemesis, Darren Mattocks, will likely be ruled out again but Erik Hurtado will be full of confidence after his first MLS goal in Columbus on the weekend.

TFC will have to be very disciplined to deal with the Vancouver attack will they be able to pull it off? Post your predictions in the comment section below or tweet them to me, @Stouffvillain. As always 2 points for the correct result, 1 point for the correct TFC score and 1 point for the correct opponent score. Here are the results so far this year.
