TORONTO, Canada—The 16th edition of Toronto FC vs New York City FC will take place this weekend.

The Reds will face NYCFC on Sunday, July 26 at 8:30 p.m. EST in the Round of 16 in the MLS is Back Tournament in Orlando, Florida.

With a win and two draws, TFC finished first in Group C, while NYCFC finished third in Group A with a win and two losses, advancing as a wildcard team.

These two teams most recently squared off on Mar. 7 earlier this season; the Reds won 1-0 on an 81st minute Achara goal. TFC also knocked New York out of the MLS Cup Playoffs in the 2019 MLS Eastern Conference semifinals.

Highlighted by several memorable wins, Toronto FC’s all-time record (regular season and playoffs) against New York City FC is 6-4-5 (W-L-T). Will Sunday evening be another classic?
