Key Stats

  • New York City haven’t lost a game in five back-to-back Major League Soccer games.
  • The last three Toronto vs New York City head-to-heads all resulted in victories for the team from the East Coast.
  • Coach Nick Cushing has an almost perfect record against Toronto, consisting of three victories and only one match lost.
  • Santiago Rodriguez is the leading goalscorer for the visitors, with four goals since the start of the campaign.

Pre-game odds and win probability: Bookies can’t decide

  • HOME: +162 – 36.5%
  • DRAW: +250 – 27.0%
  • AWAY: +162 – 36.5%

*These Toronto vs New York City odds are subject to change

As you can see from the odds above, the bookmakers can’t make up their minds about who to pick as the expected winner. Both Toronto and New York City have a 36.5% win probability at +162, which probably means a draw at +250 is the likeliest outcome on the 12th of May. However, we do believe Santiago Rodriguez will score at TQL Stadium. The Argentine playmaker’s odds are priced at +145, giving him a sturdy 39.86% chance of finding the net.

Toronto team news and form: Schedule issues for Herdman

Toronto had to face Saint-Laurent in the previous round of Canadian Championship soccer, so it will be understandable if coach Herdman’s players seem a tad tired in the match against New York City. We believe the Canucks’ busy schedule will be of huge importance for the outcome of our Toronto vs New York City predictions this week.

Player to watch: Federico Bernardeschi

We had Federico Bernardeschi as the player to watch in our previous article about Toronto and he didn’t disappoint. The Italian winger scored two of the three goals for his team in the match against FC Dallas last week, and we are convinced he will be the key threat to our Toronto vs New York City predictions this week as well.

Ever-present Bernardeschi will do his best

Not only did Bernardeschi score a brace in the match against the Bulls, but he wasn’t even substituted! He is extremely important for the Canucks, and he will surely be among the starters for the team.
