Toronto FC will be hoping to close the gap on New York Red Bulls when they welcome them to BMO Field in Wednesday's MLS clash.

Greg Vanney's men are currently occupying the final play-off spot in the Eastern Conference, trailing their guests by five points.

Latest odds

Having recorded just a second win in 12 at Montreal Impact on Sunday, they are priced at 7/10 (1.70) with bet365 to record back-to-back victories for the first time since March.

The Metros ran out 2-1 winners over local rivals New York City at the weekend and are available at 10/3 (4.33) to maintain the feelgood factor with another victory here.

Just two of the last 12 encounters between this pair have resulted in draws, but you can get odds of 3/1 (4.00) on this one finishing up all square.

Team news

Drew Moor is unlikely to feature for the hosts despite returning to training after a few weeks out with a hamstring injury.

Tim Parker is doubtful due to an ankle injury, while Florian Valot remains a long-term absentee after rupturing his ACL.

Preview

While the Montreal win will have given them confidence, the Reds have still only taken 10 points from the last available 36.

In contrast, Chris Armas' team has collected 23 from their last 12 games, and will also be flying high after Sunday's victory in the Hudson River Derby.

Predictions

What's more, the Red Bulls have come out on top in each of the last three encounters with Toronto, so are surely worth backing at 11/10 (2.10) odds to merely avoid defeat in this clash.
