Team News: Toronto FC
It doesn’t get much better regarding selection, with just a single fitness concern for the Toronto FC manager Chris Armas to be concerned with from a near full-strength group. Ifunanyachi Achara (Torn knee ligament) won’t play.
Team News: Nashville
With a completely healthy squad available for selection, the Nashville boss Gary Smith does not have any fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this clash.
When taking all factors into account, Nashville will likely create enough chances to break down this Toronto FC side, however that is unlikely to be as many as they will have scored against them.
We’re going for a narrow 2-1 advantage for Toronto FC at the end of this one. Should be a good one.
