Waking the Red Staff Predicts Toronto FC vs. Montreal Impact

Because we didn't get the rest of our playoff predictions up in time (most of them have already been wrong), here are our staff predictions of tonight's game between Toronto FC and the Montreal Impact.

Jean-Yves Ahern-USA TODAY Sports

Today is the first ever playoff match day in Toronto FC history, and surprise, surprise it means they will be playing their rival Montreal Impact. As a result, the Waking the Red staff are trying our hands at playoff predictions, and so far it isn't going well.

As a staff we unanimously picked the New England Revolution to beat DC United yesterday, and only a few of us foresaw the Seattle Sounders beating the LA Galaxy in the Western Conference.

Tonight, the Waking the Red staff favour the Portland Timbers over Sporting Kansas City by 4 staff members to 2 in other other Western Conference knockout round game.

However, what everyone cares about is who will win tonight's derby matchup between TFC and the Impact. It's pretty clear that we aren't in the least bit biased towards the team we cover. Also, for reasons that will not be shared with the public at this time Stouffvillain is fired. I mean picking Montreal to win on penalties, really?

Stouffvillain: Montreal Impact over Toronto FC 1-1 (5-3 on Pens)

Michael Veenstra: Giovinco in beastmode. TFC win 3-2.

Dave Rowaan: Toronto FC over Montreal Impact 3-2

James Grossi: Toronto FC over Montreal Impact

Mitchell Tierney: Toronto FC over Montreal Impact 3-1

Sven87: Toronto FC over Montreal Impact. Because I can't accept that I won't be back at BMO Field this year.

WAKING THE RED PICKS TORONTO FC WIN

At the very least we predict an exciting game for both sides, but its not really a surprise to anyone that this game is going to be decided by a small scoreline.
