  DID YOU KNOW?
  • With a 1-0 home victory against Vancouver on Wednesday, Toronto secured its fourth consecutive Canadian Championship trophy.
  • Philadelphia could play three different keepers in three games if Chris Konopka starts. Chase Harrison made his debut last week against Dallas with Zac MacMath out, but was battered all game and could barely stand by the end.
  • If Toronto loses again, it will have lost 10 straight games to start the season, setting a new record for futility.
  • Toronto FC is the only club not to score first in a match this season. League-wide, the club that takes the first lead is a collective 68-18-15.
  • Philadelphia's two highest scorers are new signings. Gabriel Gomez leads the team with four goals, and Lionard Pajoy has found the net three times this season.
