There is playoff history between NYCFC and Toronto FC, but the memories aren't fond ones for the Cityzens.


In 2016, the Reds annihilated NYCFC 7-0 on aggregate over two legs with a 2-0 home win followed by a resounding 5-0 triumph at Yankee Stadium in the second leg. 


The all-time regular season numbers tip in favor of NYCFC at 4W-2L-5D with an undefeated 2W-0L-4D home record at Yankee Stadium. The Conference Semi, however, will be played at Citi Field in Flushing, Queens due to the New York Yankees advancing to the ALCS.


As for 2019, Toronto FC ripped NYCFC 4-0 at BMO Field back on March 29 in Alejandro Pozuelo's MLS debut and TFC were arguably the better team in the second meeting — a 1-1 draw on September 11 at Yankee Stadium.
