Rate the Reds: Jonathan Osorio continues to roll

The Canadian is man of the match for the second straight game.

MLS: Concacaf Champions League-  Toronto FC Dan Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports

For the second consecutive game, you voted Jonathan Osorio as Toronto FC’s man of the match from Wednesday. As you all know, he scored a cheeky backheel goal in the dying minutes to give TFC a 2-1 lead over Tigres in the CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinal first leg.

You were all much kinder to TFC’s players than you were after their loss to the Columbus Crew, and rightly so. The top nine in the rankings all finished with a rating over +100. Michael Bradley got more love than he’s been getting recently, coming in second after a game in which he commanded the midfield excellently. Maybe it’s because TFC switched to a back three, but Bradley seemed much more mobile on Wednesday.

Eriq Zavaleta was the only player with a negative rating, and that means he finished in last place for the second game in a row. I didn’t think he was all that bad, although he did allow Eduardo Vargas to sneak past him once or twice (I’d pin the goal more on Chris Mavinga, though...). Zavaleta also came off with a knock late in the game.

Jozy Altidore also played by far his best game so far this season, scoring a goal and looking dangerous around the box most of the night. He finished fourth with a score more than 200 in the positive.

1. Jonathan Osorio +245
2. Michael Bradley +222
3. Sebastian Giovinco +219
4. Jozy Altidore +201
