Atlas vs Toronto Lineups & Team News

Atlas

If we disregard the misfortunate 1-0 Monterrey loss, Atlas are having one hell of a season. Sure, it’s too early to give any final estimations, but with two victories, two draws, and only one loss in five games, we could definitely say coach Benjamin Mora’s boys are on the right track. They were even close to pipping Spanish side Sporting Gijon 2-1 a few weeks ago, but luck wasn’t on their side.

Predicted lineup – Vargas (GK), Reyes, Santamaria, Nervo, Abella, Martinez, Rocha, Garcia, Guzman, Caicedo & Aguirre

Toronto

With six consecutive losses in their Major League Tournament hustle, the Canucks are definitely among the most troubled sides these days. Coach Bob Bradley was sacked due to some poor results, and we all saw what that led to – even worse performances by Toronto.

Predicted lineup – Johnson (GK), Petretta, Rosted, O’Neill, Franklin, Kerr, Ibarra, Osorio, Marshall-Rutty, Sapong & Akinola

Player to Watch: Federico Bernardeschi

The atomic Italian duo is clicking well these days. The Lorenzo Insigne – Federico Bernardeschi partnership will most likely receive minutes in the second half of the game against Atlas, as coach Terry Dunfield really can’t make any more errors.

Federico had a fantastic start with his new club, scoring thrice and supplying teammates with two valuable assists. We believe that the former Juventus star has the required potential to jeopardize our Atlas vs Toronto predictions.
