Toronto FC vs. New York Red Bulls | 2019 MLS Match Preview

2019 MLS Regular Season Week 20
Toronto FC vs. New York Red Bulls
BMO Field - Toronto
July 17- 8:00 PM ET



Two Eastern Conference foes coming off emotional Week 19 wins meet Wednesday night at BMO Field when Toronto FC host the New York Red Bulls.

Toronto FC (7-8-5) moved above the playoff line in the East following a 2-0 win over the Montreal Impact in the Canadian Classique Saturday at Stade Saputo. Alejandro Pozuelo broke the scoreless stalemate in the 61st minute before Jozy Altidore put the game away in stoppage time with a free kick that caromed off the post and in. 

The Red Bulls (9-7-4) rebounded from an early deficit to defeat New York City FC, 2-1, in the New York Derby Sunday at Red Bull Arena. Danny Royer canceled out Heber's early goal from the penalty spot and then headed in the controversial winner on the hour mark on a play in which assistant referee Corey Rockwell pointed to the corner flag, but the Red Bulls quickly took a throw-in after referee Alan Kelly overruled.
