The New England Revolution play host to Toronto FC on Saturday in a big match for both clubs. Through five games New England has just six points and through four games Toronto sits at four points. A win would do wonders for both sides.
New England is coming off of their first win of 2016 after a 1-0 defeat of the New York Red Bulls last weekend. Diego Fagundez scored the matches only goal and has now been a part of all but one of the Rev’s five goals this season.
Toronto is struggling to begin the season and has been shut out twice the past two weeks, both resulting in a loss. One positive for the club is their defense seems much improved from last year when they allowed a league-high 58 goals against.
Toronto will be without defender Clement Simonin however, and rookie Tsubasa Endoh is listed as questionable for the match.
The Revolution won the last meeting between the clubs, a 3-1 victory in Toronto. New England also has a current seven-game unbeaten streak against Toronto including three straight home victories.
Toronto FC has to get on the scoreboard at some point surely, so I say they come away with a goal or two here. New England however, comes away with the victory.
