Vancouver heads to BMO Field in the first leg of their Canadian Championship semifinal. Expect Toronto to win and the under 2.5 total goals to crack.
As former TFC fan favourite Carl Robinson comes back to Toronto as Vanouver's manager, he is expected to rest a large piece of his defensive core while giving playing time to a seres of younger players for Wednesday night's Canadian Championship match at 7:30pm EDT.
With an average roster age of 22.6, it's no surprise that the Whitecaps are listed as 4.40 underdogs at William Hill, and I don't anticipate the away result to crack.
The 'Caps are 3-2-4 (W-L-T) to start the MLS season and are coming off a 3-2 home win over San Jose this past weekend. It was the third straight game that they scored at least two goals, but with a revised roster their goal production should stall on Wednesday.
A draw result is listed at 3.40, also at the same firm. TFC is the only team in MLS to not have a draw yet through two months of play.
The Reds have lost three straight in MLS, including a 2-1 defeat to New England at home this past Saturday. Most of their starters are expected to get the nod again tonight, though goalkeeper Joe Bendik will get hs first start of the season, giving a rest to Brazilian national stopper Julio Cesar.
