Potentially crucial points over a rival in the playoff chase are on the cards when MLS action kicks off today north of the border.

Toronto FC hosts the Philadelphia Union, with just two points separating the teams in the Eastern Conference. Currently the advantage lies with TFC, who sits in fourth place as the Union are just outside the playoff spots in seventh.

The Union haven’t had the toughest of times at BMO field in the past. Out of the six meetings between these teams there, each has two wins.

Teams at the top of their respective conferences clash as FC Dallas hosts D.C. United later. The hosts are riding a three game winning streak in the league.

Gold Cup action starts back up with the U.S. Men’s National Team facing Cuba in the quarterfinal round. An all-Caribbean affair awaits later as Jamaica faces Haiti for a spot in the semifinals.

  1. Let’s go USA, let’s beat Cuba in soccer. The USA Baseball team just defeated Cuba in the Pan Am games semifinals, after defeating them in the round robin competition a few days ago. So, that was twice in the same tourney.

  2. Osorio, Seba and Delgado with a really nice combination for a goal for TFC. Delgado seemingly turning it on since his disappointing YNT tourney.

  3. Disappointed to see Mix and Ream left out of the squad but will be more disappointed if this group doesn’t win by 2 and bury Cuba early.

  4. Tricky Beas staying on the bench, keeping him fresh for the next rounds I bet. Zardes should be a spark plug from the bench but I’m ok with him getting the start against Cuba.
