    Yellow card to Patrice Bernier, unnecessary of him to take that foul and he's too important for the Impact to be taking cards.
  • 60'

    Kyle Bekker in for Jeremy Hall. Should give Toronto a more creative spark in the midfield.
  • 56'
    Free kick for Toronto FC in a dangerous spot in the Impact half.
  • 53'
    Toronto with two great chances to come back in the game. They've really stepped up their play in the second half.

    Good chance for the Impact on the counter. Di Vaio played a ball forward for Romero, but the Argentinian couldn't get a shot off.
  • 46'
    Second half is underway!
  • Halftime here at the Olympic Stadium and the Impact lead 2-0 courtesy of goals from Patrice Bernier and Marco Di Vaio. Toronto will have their work cut out for them in the second half.
  • 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.
  • 34'
    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.
  • 21'
    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.
  • 19'
    Felipe gets taken down just in the Toronto FC area, referee lets play continue. Not enough there.
  • 15'
    Camara is now playing at center back in place of the injured Nesta, while Iapichino has now filled in at left back.
  • 11'
    SubstitutionAlessandro Nesta Dennis Iapichino
    Nesta picked up a knock. He's already coming off and Iapichino will replace him. Bad blow for the Impact.
  • 7'
    Another decent chance for the Impact. Pisanu plays in a cross from Toronto's left hand side, Di Vaio brings it down with his chest, but his shot is to tame this time to really trouble Bendik.
  • 4'
    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.
