Columbus Crew win
The late comeback win over New York City will be a huge boost for Columbus Crew, who would not have been expecting a lot of points in an away match. Now, the club will look forward to making the most of back-to-back home games, which are a huge strength for the team. The Crew have lost just one match in the last 15 games. Toronto have looked very poor on the road and throughout the season. Their last away victory against Crew was in 2017.
Columbus Crew clean sheet
Toronto have come up with some decent goal returns when they have come up against Columbus Crew, but this is a very different team from recent years. Chris Armas’ men are struggling in many areas of the pitch and they have been conceding possession very easily. This should help Columbus Crew register only their second home clean sheet of the season.
Total goals under 2.5
The first home game of the season began with a goalless draw for Columbus Crew, who are aware of Toronto’s difficulties in making an impact in the final third. Toronto have had just one goal in their last four away matches in all competitions.

Columbus Crew vs Toronto: Preview of the Game and Team News
Columbus Crew were seeing any away points as a bonus a few weeks ago. The comeback win over New York City comes as a huge boost for the team in this situation. The Crew have now jumped to eighth place in the standings. The defending MLS Cup winners are on the verge of sneaking into the play-off places. Aidan Morris, Marlon Hairston, Kevin Molino, Milton Valenzuela, and Perry Kitchen constitute the players on the treatment table for the Crew.
Toronto’s misfortunes continue with the team struggling in aspects like possession and chance creation. Even though the return of Jose Altidore did provide Toronto with a small lift, it has quickly gone out of the window following the latest loss against Orlando. Alejandro Pozuelo, Julian Dunn, Ifunanyachi Achara, and Erickson Gallardo are missing from action for Armas’ men.
