Toronto FC meets Chicago Fire in the MLS on Saturday afternoon at BMO Field.
It’s been a perfect start for the Reds in the MLS this season, with three consecutive wins to give them maximum points.
Last Friday evening marked their most convincing win of the new campaign to date, when they handed out a 4-0 beating to New York City FC, with new Spanish midfielder Alejandro Pozuelo scoring twice on his debut. That’s now 10 goals scored by the Reds in their opening three games.
By contrast, Chicago Fire secured their first win of the season in the MLS at the fourth attempt, when they beat New York Red Bulls 1-0 on home turf at the SeatGeek Stadium on Saturday evening, courtesy of an own goal from Tim Parker.
