Alejandro Pozuelo knee slide - Toronto FC - October 3, 2020

This Week in MLS: Toronto FC Defies Adversity to Overtake Eastern Conference

Toronto FC Defies Adversity to Overtake Eastern Conference
With the odds stacked substantially against them, Toronto FC are yet again rising to the occasion, as the first team to punch a ticket to the Audi MLS Cup Playoffs. They’ve done so in remarkable form, with only two losses in their sum total of 17 games this season (11-2-4), including a current seven-game unbeaten streak that features five straight wins that is one shy of the club record.
 
Toronto has only five losses in their last 34 regular season games, which during a normal year would constitute a complete season. That combined run of form (18-5-11, 65 points) is not too far off of their record-setting 2017 season (20-5-9, 69 points) that garnered the Supporters’ Shield and the top seed in the postseason. 
 
Tapping into the successful history of its not-so-distant past, Toronto has reached MLS Cup in three of the last four seasons. With Landon Donovan Most Valuable Player candidate Alejandro Pozuelo posting seven goals and 10 assists for a league-best 17 combined tallies, alongside 20-year-old breakout forward Ayo Akinola’s eight goals in 12 games, TFC has found the winning recipe that could keep them atop MLS standings by season’s end.
 
 
LAFC Surging with West Conference Up for Grabs
The Western Conference is anyone’s to win, with the top three teams holding strong and only a six-point spread separating the No. 4 Los Angeles Football Club (7-6-3, 24 points) from the No. 11 Real Salt Lake (4-7-6, 18 points).
 
LAFC are in top form, as they climb their way into what could become postseason home-field advantage. After last Sunday’s crushing 3-1 defeat of Seattle Sounders FC, the Black & Gold proved once again that their former supporting cast has now stepped into starring, goal-scoring roles.
 
Without reigning Landon Donovan MLS Most Valuable Player Carlos Vela, and now down Diego Rossi and Brian Rodriguez due to international duty, and Mark-Anthony Kaye and Andy Najar due to recent injuries, it’s 24-year-old Danny Musovski who notched two goals and an assist last week, and the resurgence of Bradley Wright-Philips taking over with game-saving, and game-winning performances.
 
The Western Conference is still too close to call, but LAFC could be in fine position with a few more standout performances in the absence of their biggest stars.
 
 
Academy Products Leading Golden Boot Race, Shining Abroad
Young players developed in MLS academies and those who rose through USL affiliates continue making a mark both domestically and abroad with more talented players joining the professional ranks every month. A total of 56 players have been signed to Homegrown Player contracts by MLS clubs this season with dozens more signing deals from USL squads to MLS first teams.
 
Among the standouts are a trio of academy products atop the race for the MLS Golden Boot presented by Audi. Gyasi Zardes (Columbus Crew SC), Jordan Morris (Seattle Sounders FC) and 20-year-old Ayo Akinola (Toronto FC) each rank among the top six goalscorers in the league this season. Morris’ 15 combined goals and assists are second most in the league this season, while Akinola has advanced from the academy to USL and now tops the MLS Supporters’ Shield leaders with eight goals scored.
 
Another player to advance from a USL side to the MLS first team is New York Red Bulls 17-year-old Caden Clark. The Red Bulls signed Clark to a first team contract from the club’s USL side on Saturday, and hours later, the forward scored his first MLS goal, a game winner.
 
Internationally, MLS players continue to shine as Alphonso Davies (Vancouver Whitecaps FC Academy) and Chris Richards (FC Dallas Academy) each started in Bayern Munich’s most recent match, while Gio Reyna (New York City FC Academy) registered three assists in Borussia Dortmund’s victory ahead of the international break.
