TFC Prediction League: Round 14 (vs. Columbus Crew)

New, 17 comments

A trophy will be handed out tonight.

MLS: Columbus Crew SC at Toronto FC Kevin Sousa-USA TODAY Sports

It may not be the biggest one of the year, but the first trophy Toronto FC can win this season will be on the line on Friday night when the Columbus Crew visit BMO Field for the finale to this year’s Trillium Cup series.

With both sides having claimed a 2-1 win in the first two games at MAPFRE Stadium, this match will be the decider. Toronto essentially need to avoid defeat to retain the trophy as the first tiebreaker is away goals, of which the Reds have three. In the event of a 3-3 draw, TFC would retain the trophy as its current holders but a 4-4 goal fest would send it back to Ohio.

A win either way, of course, would avoid the need for any tiebreakers to come into the conversation. Columbus have claimed the Cup in six of its nine years of existence but TFC have two of the past three, and their 3-0 win in the most recent match at BMO Field between the two clubs was the largest margin of victory so far.

Having gone scoreless for the first time I can remember this season, Mike Whaley has lost top spot to Footy Wolverine Go Blue. No one scored full points at the summit of the table, though, creating a lot of congestion underneath with jaypere, Curtis Gergley-Garner and our own Mitchell Tierney all predicting the 1-1 scoreline.

As always, leave your prediction for the Columbus game in the comments and we’ll do the rest. It’s two points for the result and one each for the number of goals the two teams score.
