That's the good news for the Canadian outfit.
While Altidore was shown a red card at halftime, along with Red Bulls midfielder Sacha Kljestan , for a scuffle between the two in the tunnel, Giovinco picked up a booking late in the second half that will see him ruled out for the first leg of the next round.
Coming into Sunday's contest, Toronto held a 2-1 advantage after winning at Red Bull Arena
New York climed back level on aggregate thanks to a deflected Daniel Royer shot that found its way into the Toronto net off of Bradley Wright-Phillips early in the second half.
Wright-Phillips later nearly won the tie for the Red Bulls, but TFC goalkeeper Alexander Bono came up with a massive stop with the forward in alone.
Toronto twice had goals ruled out as well, first on a ball from Giovinco that looked to have been turned into the net by the Red Bulls and then on a free kick from Victor Vazquez that he took quickly, with the match official ruling that he hadn't allowed for play to continue.
