With the hopes for reaching the MLS playoffs long dashed, Toronto FC finds itself clinging for life and must win tonight in El Salvador to stay alive in the competition.
Having made the final four in last year’s competition, a loss or draw tonight would put the final nail in the coffin of a season that can only be described as disastrous.
The good news for the Reds is that they are playing a team that has been brutally beaten up in this group stage, having lost all three of its matches thus far with a goal difference of -13 from those games. Toronto already has a 5-1 home win over the Salvadoran club back on Aug. 1, which also was the last time TFC won a match.
The atmosphere in Central America will as usual be hostile and the pitch conditions are sure to be less of a quality standard than your average Sunday beer league. Despite this, Toronto is favoured at 1.74 over at North American firm Sportsbook.com, while the same firm has the away/away pick in the halftime/fulltime set at 2.65.
With a handicap of -1, TFC is paying out 2.96 which could be of decent value. They also have the draw listed right now at 3.70.
C.D. Aguila has been the worst team in the entire competition and hs conceded at least four goals in every match so far in this group stage. A win would pay out 4.25, but a better selection would be the over 3.5 total goals seeing as every game in this group has gone above that threshold. The odds for that are currently slated for 2.81.
