TFC Prediction League: Round Four (vs. Sporting Kansas City)

New, 20 comments

The Reds take on a team they have not fared too well against historically.

MLS: Toronto FC at Sporting KC Peter G. Aiken-USA TODAY Sports

Toronto FC have had a pretty torrid time of it against Sporting Kansas City over the past few years, with the Reds taking just one point from their six most recent meetings with the 2013 MLS Cup winners. Last season’s sole clash between the two sides ended in a 1-0 SKC win despite Roger Espinoza’s late red card.

Dismissals have been a feature of their matches, too, with four dished out in those same six games. Steven Caldwell accounts for both of TFC’s, while Matt Besler’s red in 2014 did not stop Peter Vermes’ team from scoring a late winner in a 2-1 triumph.

This year, Sporting KC have an identical record to Toronto of one win and two draws through their opening three games, though they have played two at home. Two of their matches have ended in 0-0 stalemates, so goals may not be aplenty on Friday night despite Sebastian Giovinco’s return to full fitness.

With all that considered, let’s make some predictions.

As usual, you can pick up two points for guessing the correct result and one each for predicting how many goals the two teams will score. All you need to do is guess the scoreline in the comments.

Footy Wolverine Go Blue (they should’ve beaten Oregon) is our new clubhouse leader with six points after coming close with his 2-1 prediction for TFC’s last game (a 2-0 win) at the Vancouver Whitecaps. It remains a very open field at this early stage, though.
