thumbnail Hello,

The best offensive team goes up against the stingiest defense in the Canadian Soccer League on Sunday afternoon at Victoria Park in Brampton, Ontario.

The 2011 Canadian Soccer League Champions Toronto Croatia have picked up right where they left. A record of 7-1-3 (W-L-T) is good enough for 3rd place in the league table, but they still have two games in hand on league leaders Toronto FC Academy.

With only 8 goals conceded in their 11 games, Toronto Croatia have proven to be a very tough nut to crack and have not lost to Brampton in their last 11 meetings dating back to 2007.

The western Toronto based club have also been solid on the road this season with 3 wins and 1 loss so far and outscored their opponents 12-4 in those matches. They scored 3 or more goals three times including a 6-0 drubbing of the North York Astros last month.

A Toronto Croatia victory is paying a decent 2.30 for the win and 1.36 in the double chance offering.

The draw is sitting at 3.25.

Brampton City have pumped in a league best 33 goals in 11 matches and find themselves in 8th in the table with a record of 5-3-3. Despite playing at home, a Brampton win would pay 2.62 and are seen as the slight underdogs.

Their home record is 3-2-2 and with the grass always a bit longer at Victoria Park than at most stadiums, expect the game to be slower and also for Toronto Croatia’s rock-solid defence to stifle Brampton’s forwards, including league leading goal-scorer Milos Scepanovic who has a goal a game so far (11 in 11). Look at the under 2.5 which will be available closer to kickoff. The CSL is a notoriously high-scoring league so odds for an under 2.5 will be favourable to bettors.
