Match preview

Major League Soccer's biggest cross-conference rivalry is back, with these two heavyweights meeting for the first time in 965 days.

Between 2016 and 2019, these two clubs contested three MLS Cups, with Seattle victorious in 2016 and 2019 while TFC got revenge in 2017.

However, since clashing at Lumen Field in that showpiece final three years ago, they've stayed apart, until this Saturday night clash in Canada.

Visitors Seattle Sounders were in excellent form, until the breaks were very much put on their momentum on Wednesday night.

High-fliers Club de Foot Montréal came from behind to win 2-1 in Washington State, despite Jordan Morris' third minute opener.

Before this, Brian Schmetzer's side were unbeaten in four and had won five of seven matches since lifting CONCACAF Champions League.

The Rave Green do, just about, remain above the Western Conference play-off line, but that mid-week loss was certainly a reality check.

As for Toronto FC, they too were beaten on Wednesday, going down 2-1 at home to Columbus Crew.

Just before this, Bob Bradley's team had seemingly, belatedly, found some cohesion, winning three home matches on the bounce.

The Reds had beaten Chicago and Atlanta in the league, while also hammering CF Montréal 4-0 in the Canadian Championship semi-finals.

However, that loss to the Crew means TFC remain 11th in the east, five points below the play-off places.

Who will win this classic MLS match-up at BMO Field?
