Toronto FC - On the Road Again!

"New BMO" is being traded in for New England, as the Reds are on the road for their league leading 8th road game. New England have been on a tear lately, and TFC will have to be defensively strong in order to leave Massachusetts with a result.

Pre-Match Reading

As always, we've got you covered here at WTR - read a breakdown of New England here and here in our Know Your Enemy series. We also had a chat with Steve Stoehr of The Bent Musket, who has some more insight into the Revs. On the TFC side of things, we've got an Injury Report and a preview of the match.

What to Expect

TFC are going to be in tough against the Revs, who are unbeaten in 8 games and have created some dynamic offense in that time -- If TFC have a competitor for the most exciting team in the East going forward, it's the Revs. On top of that, they've been solid defensively making this a tough test for the Reds.

Key Matchup: TFC Fullbacks vs Revs Wingers

Juan Agudelo, Teal Bunbury and Kelyn Rowe will prove to be a difficult test for TFC's fullbacks, whether that is Morrow, Morgan, Creavalle or Bloom. The Revs wingers create problems everywhere they go, using their speed and strength to create goals for themselves and for Charlie Davies, who has 4 on the season.
