MLS Preview: Toronto FC - D.C. United

D.C. attempts to become the latest team to take advantage of TFC's poor form, while the Reds are desperate not to set an unenviable record.

Toronto FC (4-3-3): Kocic; Henry, Cann, Aceval, Morgan; de Guzman, Frings, Dunfield; Lambe, Johnson, Avila.


OUT: FW Nicholas Lindsay (L knee surgery recovery); GK Stefan Frei (L lower leg); DF Dicoy Williams (R knee surgery recovery); MF Nick Soolsma (L hamstring strain)
D.C. United (4-4-2): Willis; Russell, Kitchen, McDonald, Woolard; Cruz, Sargosa, De Rosario, DeLeon; Pontius, Santos.


OUT: DF Ethan White (R knee surgery); MF Lance Rozeboom (L knee ACL tear); DF Emiliano Dudar (L hamstring strain)

QUESTIONABLE: MF Kurt Morsink (L foot neurectomy); FW Josh Wolff (L hamstring strain); DF Dejan Jakovic (L ankle sprain)
  • If Toronto loses this game, the Canadian club will set a new record for losses to start a season, with eight. The Reds are closing in on the MLS record for consecutive losses: New York lost 12 in a row.
  • Two former TFC players in excellent form could come back to haunt their old club. Maicon Santos leads United with six league goals, and Dwayne De Rosario's seven assists are the best in MLS.
  • The last time De Rosario faced Toronto FC, he scored a hat trick.
  • D.C.'s 5-3 loss to the San Jose Earthquakes on Wednesday was the highest-scoring game so far this season.
  • D.C. is on a scoring tear at the moment. The capital club has scored 10 goals in its last three matches.
