Toronto team news and form: Italian duo key for Canucks

If the Bernardeschi – Insigne duo clicks on the 7th of July, our Columbus Crew vs Toronto predictions will be in jeopardy. However, we’ve seen the two perform well simultaneously very rarely in the past, so we believe coach Josh Herdman’s boys will struggle at Lower.com Field.

Player to watch: Cucho Hernandez

Hernandez deserves to be the player to watch in our Columbus Crew vs Toronto prediction, as he has been a goalscoring machine for Nancy ever since he joined the team! The Colombian was the best Columbus Crew finisher in 2023, and with 10 goals to his name in 2024, he’s the best player this season as well.

Second player to watch: Lorenzo Insigne

Insigne is a man who needs no introduction. The former Napoli and Seria A star still has admirable qualities, and we are sure he’d be a starter for his manager this week as well.
