Toronto FC Prediction League 2018: Round 9 (@ Club América)

Is a two-goal cushion enough for TFC?

Soccer: Concacaf Champions League-Club America at Toronto FC Dan Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports

Today’s the day! Toronto FC will play at the freakin’ Azteca tonight, in Leg 2 of their Concacaf Champions League semifinal with Club América. The Reds go in with a two-goal series lead, but América snagged a crucial away goal last week as the game finished 3-1.

You all did surprisingly well last week; only one person (shoutout AMS1984, first commenter) got the 3-1 scoreline bang on, but the most common prediction was a 2-1 TFC win. That’d be a solid three points for everyone who picked it.

We now have a tie at the top of the table, as blkndkr made up the one-point gap to draw level with Arjon at 17 points. Those two are pulling ahead a little bit, now with a three-point lead over anybody else. Still, plenty of games to go. One lucky strike could jump anybody well up the table.

How are you feeling for tonight? I’d probably bank on Club América scoring at least one or two goals, but how many exactly? And do you think TFC can pull off an away goal, which might just see them through to the final?

Since it’s such an enormous game, let’s have a little fun with bonus points. This week, guess the minute the game’s first goal is scored in. If you’re within five minutes, that’s a bonus point.

And as always, it’ll be two points for the winner, and one for each team’s goals.

Good luck! Here are the current standings:
