Match preview

After an impressive victory on the road on opening weekend, can New York Red Bulls make it two wins out of two to start 2022?

A week ago, Gerhard Struber's side swatted aside San Jose Earthquakes, winning 3-1 at PayPal Park.

Patryk Klimala opened the scoring in first half stoppage time, bundling home a cross by new signing and another former Celtic man Lewis Morgan.

After the break, Omir Fernandez's shot proved too hot to handle, restoring RBNY's lead, before Tom Barlow sealed the win in additional time.

The Red Bulls finished seventh in the east last season before losing in the first round of the play-offs at Philadelphia Union.

But, this talented, youthful squad will certainly be confident of coming closer to silverware this year.

Toronto FC meanwhile have appeared in three of the last six MLS Cup, lifting the trophy in 2017 while losing to Seattle in both 2016 and 2019.

Five years ago, TFC became the first, and so far only, MLS club to complete the treble, also picking up the Supporters' Shield and Canadian Championship.

New manager Bob Bradley has been brought in to bring the glory days back to Ontario and he made a decent start to his tenure last weekend.

The Reds' drew 1-1 with FC Dallas on opening weekend, courtesy of Jonathan Osorio's equaliser in Texas.

Of course, all the excitement is about Lorenzo Insigne's arrival in July but, before then, his future teammates must stay in play-off contention.

Who will win this evenly-matched contest at BMO Field?
