Toronto have won most of their recent games and are scoring goals at an impressive rate. Moreover, at home they have been on such a run that it seems virtually impossible to hold them back now.
However, at the same time Columbus Crew are going through a poor stretch of results. They are letting in goals in huge numbers and particularly on the road they have been a huge mess.
They also have the added pressure of being almost close to the bottom of the table and this has only added in making their performances even worse.
Going on, they also have a poor head-to-head record against this rival over the years, particularly so at this venue.
Taking into account these observations, anticipate a victory for Toronto this Thursday in front of their home crowd.
Do also note that they had won 6 of their past 8 appearances at home, and they managed to score 2 or more goals in every single one of these 6 home games.
On the other hand, Columbus Crew were winless in 11 of their past 13 overall games, and they had gone on a 4-fixture losing streak. Do also note that they were winless in 17 of their past 20 road trips.
Considering these observations, anticipate a victory for Toronto this Thursday.
