Yellow card to Patrice Bernier, unnecessary of him to take that foul and he's too important for the Impact to be taking cards.

45′ +1
Goal Marco Di Vaio
Goal for the Impact! Arnaud finds a pocket of space between the midfield and defensive line, plays a neat through ball for Di Vaio, and the Italian beats the keeper and places it into the top corner from a difficult angle. Its all uphill now for Toronto.
 
45′
Two minutes of added time.
 
43′
Chance for the Impact! Good cross in from Arnaud, and its Di Vaio that get's a foot on it, but it doesn't trouble Bendik.

Penalty Goal Patrice Bernier
Goal for the Impact! Bernier puts the Impact in front from the penalty spot, but really, it was a very soft penalty to begin with. Let's see how Toronto responds, its been an even game so far.
 
29′
Big goal saving challenge from Brovsky. Toronto's Ephraim found a good pocket of space in the Impact box, played a good ball across to Earnshaw but Brovksy just got a foot onto it. Would have been a sure goal.
 
26′
Toronto FC moving the ball around pretty well so far, but haven't really created anything of note.

Yellow Card Jeremy Hall
Toronto's Jeremy hall given a yellow for a two leg tackle on Pisanu. Free kick for the Impact in the Toronto end.

Camara is now playing at center back in place of the injured Nesta, while Iapichino has now filled in at left back.
 
11′
Substitution Alessandro Nesta Dennis Iapichino
Nesta picked up a knock. He's already coming off and Iapichino will replace him. Bad blow for the Impact.

Early chance for the Impact! Bernier switches play to Romero in the TFC half, who then heads it down for Di Vaio, and the Italian's volley is just tipped away by Bendik!
 
2′
Felipe wins a soft free kick in Toronto's half.
 
1′
And we're off! Impact playing right to left.
 
 
Kickoff in a minute. Looks like nearly 40,000 present at today's game, which includes a record MLS away crowd of several thousand from Toronto.
 
 
No changes for Toronto FC from the team that beat Sporting Kansas City last week. Only change for the Impact is Romero playing on the left-hand side of midfield instead of Sanna Nyassi.
