  DID YOU KNOW?
  • If Toronto FC loses this match it will tie the MLS record for the worst start to a season. The Kansas City Wizards started the 1999 season by losing seven straight. Toronto is pointless through six games.
  • Since 2007 the away team hasn't won in this series. Each side won at home last season.
  • Real Salt Lake tied FC Dallas on the road midweek, with rookie Emiliano Bonfigli scoring the equalizer for RSL.
  • Toronto's last outing was a 3-2 defeat to the Chicago Fire. Reggie Lambe scored the first two goals of his MLS career in the losing effort.
  • Nick Rimando, 28, and Milos Kocic, 25, are first and third, respectively, on the MLS saves list this season. Also, Kyle Beckerman is tied with Oswaldo Minda with a league-leading four yellow cards.
