Predicting Toronto FC’s lineup against Vancouver Whitecaps (Leg 1)

TFC head west for the first leg of the Canadian Championship final On Wednesday night Toronto FC will be at BC Place in Vancouver for the first leg of the 2018 Canadian Championship final. Both sides are coming into the final high on confidence as Vancouver are unbeaten in 3 games and Toronto are unbeaten in their last 5. Toronto reached the final with a 4-0 aggregate win over Ottawa Fury FC. 2 goals from Jonathan Osorio, one from Jordan Hamilton and a first TFC goal for Ayo Akinola saw the Reds move on comfortably.

Toronto FC 3-0 Ottawa Fury: The good, the bad & the ugly

Toronto FC 3-0 Ottawa Fury: The good, the bad & the ugly

Let’s not get too excited. It was just Ottawa. The Good The weather. It was a perfect evening for footy... Ayo Akinola scoring his first goal for the Big Club... Jonathan Osorio’s haircut. I loved his goal celebration... Justin Morrow’s defensive stop in the second half... Nick Hagglund’s backwards header to Clint Irwin late in the game. A little cheeky, but definitely confident... Liam Fraser really improved as the game went on (but, see “bad” section below)... the Red Patch Boys were in fine fettle. Glad that the supporters’ club sanctions (for all except a few) were lifted...

FT: Toronto FC 3-0 Ottawa Fury — CanCon propels TFC to final

FT: Toronto FC 3-0 Ottawa Fury — CanCon propels TFC to final

A resounding win for the Reds. It seems Toronto FC’s attack has woken up, albeit against a USL side. Goals from Ayo Akinola, Jordan Hamilton, and Jonathan Osorio (please watch that highlight) pushed TFC to a confident 3-0 win over the Ottawa Fury. The Reds were dominant pretty much all night, with very little work to do for Clint Irwin at the back. Chris Mavinga looked his dominant self again in the back three, and Jozy Altidore started to get back into his groove in his 45 minutes of play. One of the biggest stories from the match was Liam Fraser, who was absolutely dominant in central...
