MLS 12th-14th Mar 2016

Columbus Crew -0.5 @ 1.56/-1 @ 2.01 v Philadelphia Union

As expected, Union lost to FC Dallas by a rather modest scoreline of 2-0. It should have been more if not for the saves by Union gk Andre Blake. To add to their woes, their best defensive player Edu suffered an injury setback and could be out till June. Swiss international Tranquillo Barnetta will sit out again.

Crew suffered another defeat to Timbers again. They played pretty well and probably should have got a draw which is more of a fairer result. Gregg Berhalter will have a full squad to choose from.

With Philly missing Edu again, it's hard to see their defence improving from last week performance. With Higuain pulling the string in midfield, Kamara should get his season going with a goal or 2 in this game.

MLS: New York City FC - Toronto FC

Last round Toronto won 2-0 in the Big Apple, courtesy of two late goals , including a first of the season from star front man Sebastian Giovinco, he also laid on the second and now has "just" the 23 goals and 16 assists from 34 MLS starts, a scoring contribution every 73.5 minutes ! He came up short in two of three games against NYFC last season, but had an hat-trick and assist in a 4-4 draw here in the other, so you cannot keep a good man down for too long !

The game between Chicago and New York City was exactly what it looked like from the scoreline, a wide open, end to end encounter and even when City went "defensive" at 2-4, it barely changed anything, they looked vulnerable to pace at the back, but to score four on the road, without a goal from David Villa is hugely promising and I doubt new coach Viera will be any less offensive minded in his home debut. They looked to press high, tactics which worked so well for Red Bulls last year, but TFC got an early look at those and stifled them with a disciplined performance last week , that gives them an edge and with NYFC still coming to terms with the shift in tactics, i would be amazed if there were not goals in this for Toronto and the tireless Giovinco.

I can only see goals in this and feel that NYFC will need two to get a result and three+ to win.

Toronto to score "over" 1.5 goals 1.95-2.05 general quote if you can find it, if not, or even if you can .............

over 3.5 goals 2.36 asian line/Sportmarket
