TFC head to Qwest Field

Posted on 29 August 2009 by Mahmoud Shoblaq

Following a decent result against D.C. then a disappointing one against Chivas, Toronto FC aim to bounce back when they head to Qwest Field to face the Seattle Sounders FC. TFC fell to Seattle 2-0 earlier in the season and now look to earn something away from home and get some revenge.

Toronto will be without Adrian Serioux and Carl Robinson due to card accumulation suspensions. Everyone else is fit and available to play.

This match is critical for Toronto FC as they are in the final stretch of games and need every point to make it to the playoffs for the first time in club history.

Previous three MLS results for each team:

Seattle Sounders FC (8-6-9):
vs. Houston Dynamo (Away)= 1-1 Draw
vs. New England Revolution (Home)= 1-0 Loss
vs. Los Angeles Galaxy (Away)= 2-0 Win

Toronto FC (8-8-6):
vs. Chivas USA (Away)= 2-0 Loss
vs. D.C. United (Home)= 2-0 Win
vs. New England Revolution (Away)= 1-1 Draw

Predictions for the upcoming game:

  • Everyone is healthy to play. After much anticipated rumors and speculation about Danny Dichio he too is fit to play and will be on the roster for the game.
  • Likely TFC starting line-up: GK: Stefan Frei. DF: Nana Attakora, Emmanuel Gomez, Nick Garcia,  Jim Brennan. MF: Pablo Vitti, Amadou Sanyang, Sam Cronin, Amado Guevara. FW: O’Brian White, Dwayne De Rosario.
  • Yet the line-up could be anyone’s guess going into this crucial game.
  • ASN puts the chances of a TFC win at 20%, a draw at 30%, and a loss at 50%.
  • Final score prediction: TFC LOSS,  Toronto FC 1 – Seattle Sounders FC 2
