TFC Looks To Turn Tide At BMO Field, Secure Series Win Against New England Revolution

By on April 20, 2024 0 551 Views

Toronto FC are back home tonight and going up against New England Revolution, a side they have already matched up against in this 2024 MLS Campaign.

Last month saw the Reds claim the away matchup at Gillette Stadium 1-0 after a cheeky chip goal was scored by currently-injured Italian star Lorenzo Insigne.

Both sides head into the matchup with the hopes of turning the tide from recent losses. The Revs currently have only one win and one draw, tallying five losses to their name for their 2024 showing. They also recently endured a tough loss in the quarterfinals of the CONCACAF Champions Cup to Club America, something which could fuel the team as they visit BMO Field in a bid to stop Toronto FC from taking the series sweep.

This home match against the Revs should be just what Coach John Herdman’s side needs to turn things around as they come off recent away losses to Charlotte FC and the Vancouver Whitecaps. With Italian DP Lorenzo Insigne injured, Herdman will look for goals from recently announced team of the matchday bench honours Prince Owusu, who scored a brace in last weekends matchup.

Herdman’s defence will be thin Saturday with Kevin Long suspended and fellow centre back Shane O’Neill injured. Herdman also has listed both Italian DP Federico Bernardeschi and defender Raoul Petretta as questionable for the home match, with Alonso Coello being is the latest to be sidelined as he works his way through concussion protocols.

In preparation for the game the Reds signed Toronto FC II midfielder Andrei Dumitru to an MLS short-term agreement for Saturday’s MLS regular season match against New England Revolution.

Despite being a couple men down for their matchup, Coach Herdman will expect the support from the fans in attendance to fuel his team back into winning aways and to complete the series sweep against the visiting New England Revolution, who are currently bottom of the east compared to Toronto in ninth.
