The archrivals square off for the Voyageurs Cup, and for the right to represent Canada at the 2014-15 CONCACAF Champions League.This one's for all the marbles.
The second leg of the Amway Canadian Championship final kicks off Wednesday night, with the Montreal Impact hosting Toronto FC at Stade Saputo.
Montreal holds a slight advantage heading into Wednesday's clash, after the Impact scored in the second half of the first leg to secure a 1-1 draw at BMO Field last week. The away goal means that a scoreless draw or a victory of any kind in the second leg will allow the Impact to raise the Voyageurs Cup for a second straight year, which would be a bit of a silver lining in a season that has so far gone awry for Frank Klopas' team.
Mired at or near the bottom of the MLS table for most of the campaign, Montreal has actually put together a mini-run of decent results recently. Following the draw at Toronto last week the Impact knocked off Eastern Conference-leading New England Revolution by a 2-0 scoreline on Saturday, giving the Quebecers a bit of momentum ahead of the title-deciding contest.
TFC also heads into Wednesday's cup final on a high, having lost just once over its past six matches in all competitions. That lone defeat came in the semifinal round of the Canadian Championship and was ultimately part of an overall win as the Reds fell 2-1 to Vancouver in regulation but won the subsequent penalty shootout.
With both Toronto and Montreal getting good results of late, it could lead to a spirited contest for the domestic championship.
The match kicks off at 7:30 p.m. EDT at Stade Saputo, with Sportsnet One broadcasting it in Canada. Fans in the USA and Mexico can catch the game on MLS Live.
