Toronto FC has lost only one of its last nine matches against the New England Revolution (W4 D4), though both meetings last season ended in draws. The Revolution’s lone win in that, a 2-1 victory in August 2021, came in Toronto, New England’s only win at BMO Field since 2016.
Toronto FC’s 1-0 win over new York City FC on Saturday was the club’s second win in its last 16 MLS matches (D7 L7) dating back to late August last season. Toronto FC’s two wins and 13 points in that time are both the fewest in MLS, while its 32 goals allowed over that span are four more than any other team.
Four of New England’s six MLS wins this season have come be a one-goal margin. Since the start of the 2021 season the Revolution have won 29 games by a one-goal margin, five more than any other MLS team in that span.
C. J. Sapong made his Toronto Fc debut and scored the game’s only goal on Saturday against New York City FC. Toronto FC is the third team Sapong has scored in his MLS debut for (Chicago Fire, Sporting Kansas City), becoming the sixth player in league history to score on his club debut for at least three different teams.
Djorde Petrovic saved his fifth penalty in MLS in new England’s draw with FC Cincinnati on Saturday, two more than any other goalkeeper since he made his league debut last June. New England has conceded 14 penalties since Petrovic’s debut, four more than any other team in that time.
