The winner not only will hoist a national title and the bragging rights that come with it, but will also gain entry into the CONCACAF Champions League for the 2014-15 edition.

MONTREAL – The Impact sound serious about their hunt for another Voyageurs Cup.

“We’ve got to see who’s in their best form and put the strongest team out there,” head coach Frank Klopas told reporters on Monday.

What will that strongest team look like, then, when Montreal visit FC Edmonton on Wednesday in the first leg of the Amway Canadian Championship semifinals? Reporters tried their hardest to get Klopas to spill the beans prior to the match (9:30 pm ET, Sportsnet ONE).

He didn’t.

VANCOUVER, B.C. – A 17-year-old will start in goal for the Vancouver Whitecaps on Wednesday, as coach Carl Robinson's youth revolution takes another step forward when the semifinals of the 2014 Amway Canadian Championship get underway.

The Whitecaps head east to take on MLS rivals Toronto FC in Wednesday's first-leg matchup (7:30 pm ET, Sportsnet One), chasing their first championship in the modern era – as well as the coveted CONCACAF Champions League spot that awaits the winners – and the focus is heavily on youth.

TFC's Osorio: We're going to make sure 'Caps keep dreaming of Canadian title

TORONTO – After falling short in the finals of the 2013 Amway Canadian Championship, Toronto FC are looking to make amends this season. In order to do that, the Reds first have to defeat the Vancouver Whitecaps in the semifinals of this year's edition, starting with Wednesday's first leg at BMO Field (7:30 pm ET, Sportsnet One).

And considering it was TFC themselves who ruined Vancouver's dreams in the 2012 finals, TFC are eager not only to return to the tournament themselves, but to ruin the Whitecaps' hopes as well.
