DID YOU KNOW?
  • Toronto FC is coming off perhaps the biggest win in franchise history: a 3-0 win at FC Dallas midweek to clinch a spot in next year's knockout phase of the CONCACAF Champions League.

  • The Revs are currently riding a five-game losing streak and have been out of playoff contention for several weeks.
  • TFC has also long since been eliminated from postseason contention, but has managed back-to-back 1-1 draws against New York and Philadelphia.
  • A New England win would see it avoid finishing bottom of the league, as long as Vancouver doesn’t defeat the Colorado Rapids.
  • Midseason signing Danny Koevermans has been a hit for TFC this season, scoring seven times in just nine league games
  • New England has never won at BMO Field, going 0-2-2.
