Are you smarter than Paul Mariner: Round 21

The Eastern Conference leaders make the trip north of the border to visit BMO Field on Saturday. Predict the score and win.

Peter G. Aiken-USA TODAY Sports

Fresh off of their annual mid-season friendly, Toronto FC get ready to host Sporting Kansas City to BMO Field. Instead of a week of rest before taking on the top team in the Eastern Conference and reigning MLS Cup champions TFC squeezed in a kickabout with the Lilywhites. The good news is that at least TFC didn’t have to travel for this game as KC had to after their mid-week international friendly with Manchester City.

KC was uncharacteristically sputtering before the World Cup break but since the return of Besler and Zusi, the newest Designated Players in MLS not named Lampard, KC has been rolling though the competition. Things were looking pretty good for TFC when Aurelien Collin was shown a red card in KC’s last match however MLS has since rescinded the red and Collin will be available for selection this weekend. Starting keeper Eric Kronberg broke a finger in training a few weeks ago and since then former Columbus keeper Andy Gruenebaum has been wearing the gloves for KC. Sporting is 3-0 when Gruenebaum has started but have not kept a clean sheet in any of those matches.

Can TFC’s back line figure it out and keep KC’s attack at bay? Can a Defoe-less TFC attack find the key to unlock the KC defense? Will Bradley Orr score against KC again? Post your predictions below or tweet your predictions to me, @Stouffvillain to ensure that your entry is accurately logged. 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 up to date results.
