Gamethread: Toronto FC at Chivas USA, 9/24/11

New, 30 comments

It is nearly game time! Chivas USA are hosting Toronto FC this evening (7:30 pm PST KDOC/Direct Kick/Matchday Live). Both teams are coming off a midweek game, with Chivas pulling back to get a 2-2 draw with DC United Wednesday, while TFC beat Tauro 1-0 in CONCACAF Champions League play. The question tonight is which team, for each club, will show up? Chivas have been playing poorly of late but the draw was a sign of hope, while Toronto has played well of late with three wins in their last five league matches. Who will play for either team tonight, and who will come out ready to play? We'll find out shortly.

In case you missed it, here's my preview of the match. Feel free as well to check out the perspective of TFC, through Waking the Red, SB Nation's Toronto FC blog.
