Trillium Cup: Round 2 Beat the Crew

Greg Bartram-USA TODAY Sports

The Reds travel to Ohio for leg two of this sesaon's Trillium Cup tie.  While Columbus has never been a welcoming place for TFC, only three wins and two draws in 14 away matches, they have come away with full points two of the last three trips to Columbus.  The good news continues for TFC as they will also get their captain Michael Bradley back as the USA fell to Jamaica in the Gold Cup semi-finals on Wednesday.

The bad news is that Columbus is getting hot with back to back wins against the Chicago Fire last week.  While wins against the Fire alone may not be overly impressive Columbus has only lost once in their last 7 MLS matches.  Their last loss at home was all the way back on June 6th against Montreal, who seem to have Columbus' number this season.

In the first meeting this season Columbus won 2-0 in Columbus.  If TFC is to change their fortunes this time around they will have to be sound defensively to keep the likes of Kei Kamara, Federico Higuain, Ethan Finlay and Justin Meram off the score sheet.

What happens in Ohio this time around?

Scoring; 2 points for the correct result, 1 point for the correct TFC score and 1 point for the correct opponent score.  Post in the comment section below or mention me (@Stouffvillain) before kick-off to be eligible.
