Can Toronto break the spell at home?
Toronto FC can look back on relatively unsuccessful weeks. The last victory is 9 games back, the balance sheet since then is with 5 defeats and 3 draws cause for concern. The team started with three victories in series in this year’s Major League Soccer season. The other two previous three celebrated Toronto on Match 6 and 8, but has since remained without further victory. Thus, the Toronto FC is in seventh place in the Eastern Division with 5 wins, 4 draws and 7 defeats. At home games Toronto is only a little more successful than away. 3 wins, 3 defeats and 3 draws have so far come home, with 2 wins, 4 defeats and 1 draws away. Overall, the Toronto FC completed 16 games so far in the MLS, 19 points could be obtained from it. Toronto is one of the most dangerous teams in the Eastern Division. With 26 scores, the team is only behind Philadelphia and the New York Red Bulls in third place of the most successful offensive departments. The problem of FC Toronto is more to prevent goals. Despite the very good 26 goal scores to win only 5 games, testifies to a serious defensive weakness. 28 goals give the Canadians a negative goal score of -2 goals. With a pass rate of 86% Toronto can claim at least 53% possession. On average, 13 shots are scored, 1.6 goals are scored per game. At home even 2 goals on average, 15.6 shots are in the BMO Field from. It shows relatively clearly where the Toronto FC the proverbial dog is buried, in defense. With an average of 12.3 approved shot attempts of the opponents and consequent 1.8 goals, the team can hold a possible leadership rarely, too often gave Toronto games from the hand. Atlanta, who have played very disciplined football and conceded 11 goals from 15 appearances, will find it difficult for Toronto FC to score. The first leg of May, Toronto lost 2-0. Can they turn the tables at home? The bookies seem to trust both teams a victory, they usually favor even the home team a bit.
Will Atlanta continue the winning streak in Toronto?
Atlanta United was able to improve step by step after a bumpy start to the season and also catapulted further up the table. After completing the first 4 games of the season with 2 losses and 2 draws, Atlanta began a veritable recovery and began to record victories on the account. With impressive 6 wins from 7 games, with even 5 consecutive wins, Atlanta made a good start after 15 games played. Lying on fourth place in the standings, coach Frank de Boer’s team is back on track and in the best way to the goal of defending the title. It is still a lot of football to play until it can be done. But the team seems to be back to old quality again. With just 19 goals Atlanta could still win 8 of the previous 15 games. The defensive department, which with only 11 goals and a margin of 2 hits, is not only the best in the Eastern Division, but the entire MLS. At home one is more successful than abroad, with the differences being especially evident in defeats. Winning at home 5 of 8 matches and conceding only one defeat, you had to accept 4 defeats away, you could win three games. One reason is the worse chance of exploitation away from home. If you score at home 1.4 goals from 14.5 shooting attempts, it is away only 1. goal from 14.7 shooting attempts. There is also a difference in the pass rate. Here, 84% are in the Mercedes-Benz Stadium, 79% in stadiums opposite. This explains, among other things, the assessments of the bookmakers, both teams as equal, even to see Toronto slightly favored. But we think that Atlanta can prevail at the end of the day.
