The visitors have the best defence currently in the MLS

Toronto FC will be shifting their focus back to Major League Soccer after entertaining their fans in the Canadian Championship. They hosted CS Saint-Laurent who plays in the Ligue1 Québec. An 8-1 scoreline helped them move into the semi-finals with an aggregate scoreline of 11-1. John Herdman’s men’s last MLS game had ended 5-1 in their favour against CF Montréal.

FC Cincinnati are reluctantly chasing Inter Miami who are currently table toppers of the 2024 MLS’s Eastern Conference. The Orange and Blue have a game in hand over the Herons and can lead the table for at least a few hours with a win before Inter Miami play against Vancouver Whitecaps on Sunday. Pat Noonan’s side have conceded just 11 goals making them the strongest defensive outfit in the entire MLS division.

Players to Watch

Federico Bernardeschi (Toronto FC)

Former Juventus player Federico Bernardeschi was the star of the show for his side in the last MLS outing. In a match that saw Toronto FC breach the goalline of Montréal five times, Bernardeschi netted a hattrick. This was the first MLS hat trick for the star player who has been in the USA since July 2022.

Luciano Acosta (FC Cincinnati)

Luciano Acosta was involved in all three of the goals his team scored in the last MLS game against St. Louis City SC. Acosta scored the opener with a penalty and helped assist the goals of both Yuya Kubo and Sérgio Santos. With these three goal contributions, the 29-year-old sees his name find the 14th place of the all-time MLS goal contribution standings.
