DID YOU KNOW?
  • Toronto is the only team in MLS yet to record a single point this season. Its two goals scored and -7 goal difference are tied for worst in the league.
  • All five of Chivas USA's games this season have been decided by a one goal margin. Oddly, the Goats have lost all their home matches but won their two away games, against Real Salt Lake and the Portland Timbers.
  • Ryan Smith recorded his second career two-assist game in Chivas USA’s win Saturday. Smith had two assists for Kansas City against Philadelphia in his first MLS season, on June 10, 2010.
  • Toronto will be glad to play this match at home. The Reds have lost all five times they have played Chivas USA at the Home Depot Center.
  • If Toronto fails to win, they will have set a new team record for worst start to a season.
