Toronto FC has scored the most goals in MLS in 2017, and also has allowed the least goals against them. They have a scintillating plus -33 goal differential, and only 3 losses. Toronto has been the class of the league this season. Last year’s bridesmaid is now also the first team to book a playoff berth after Saturday’s lop sided 4-0 defeat of the San Jose Earthquakes. The playoff berth comes at the expense of rival Montreal, who on Saturday ensured Toronto’s postseason spot courtesy of their 1-0 loss to the New England Revolution.
Victor Vazquez opened the scoring with a 27th minute opener, before Jozy Altidore scored a brace in the second half for a commanding 3-0 advantage. Toronto’s own Jonathon Osario rounded out the scoring in the 67th minute as Toronto FC rolled to an easy victory.
The club has won five of their last six matches, outscoring the opposition 22-4. The run has included winning results over the Eastern Conference rivals New York City FC, Chicago Fire, and Montreal Impact .
Greg Vanney’s club is now nine points away from breaking the LA Galaxy’s 1998 record for points in a season (68), with six matches to play. Toronto FC aims to become the first club outside of the United States to lift the supporters shield.
