Toronto FC vs. Seattle Sounders Match Preview:
Here we welcome the finalists of the coming-to-end 2016 MLS season which has been full of struggle and uncompromising all along. These are Canadian Toronto FC facing Seattle Sounders in the championship decider that will be hosted by "BMO Field" stadium in Toronto. Speaking frankly, this is big luck for The Reds from Canada to play on its own ground, which hosted once 2010 MLS Cup, featuring the Colorado Rapids' championship title obtained after beating FC Dallas with 2–1. In fact, Toronto team has never come this far in its history, so in case they win this one, the history will be rewritten for them and own pitch is the best possible way to make it!
Match status: USA: MLS - Play Offs - Final
Venue: "BMO Field" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Toronto FC: Team News
Let's examine either of the potential winner a little closer. The Reds led by Greg Vanney walked a tough path to reaching its first ever final and right before that nobody had not even expected they would have done it. Anyhow, the path got started off with a decent form shown by the team during the regular season in the Eastern Conference, setting up themselves a comfortable gap of seven points more than the 4th following DC United. Thus, Greg Vanney's men finished third in the Eastern standings and were awarded with the opportunity to play in the round of 16 of the play-offs.

The most interesting things began to happen in the knock-out stage, where firstly Canadians eliminated Philadelphia Union at "BMO Field" followed by a 3-1 win. After that the turn came to New York City who were completely "wiped out" with 7-0 on aggregate, then onwards suffered the countrymen from Montreal and namely they gave them permission to advance to the final, as the first leg was won over by Montreal Impact. Nevertheless, second leg brought a magnificent victory to Toronto as usual on the home pitch. We thereby see how home grass affects upon the hosts and this time it favours them too like a huge advantage.

Regarding the team's ambition, we'd say that they are coming to this game in very good spirit, as such a breakthrough has significantly contributed moral boost for the Reds and the names like Jozy Altidore and Sebastian Giovinco can play a crucial role in Toronto's overall attacking formation. Not to mention, these two are currently the most scoring players of the whole MLS action within 2015/16 season, so we'd love to watch them going forward for their team on Saturday night.

Seattle Sounders: Team News
Semifinalists of the previous season come to this eventual fixture on the back of the fourth-occupied position in the Western Conference and a quite inconsistent run in the play-offs. Starting off with a narrow elimination to Sporting Kansas City, carrying on making its way through the aggregate wins over FC Dallas and Colorado Rapids justifying the fact, which was mentioned above, that they will really hard to win the champions title off from Toronto when they are performing at home.

In the Seattle's squad we can see some wreckage as Clint Dempsey has been out of first team over three months and his absence is covered by young talent Jordan Morris who's recorded 14 goals this season. Despite Dempsey, there is Nelson Valdez who is regarded as a big threat and we definitely consider the Sounders as solid formed by 4-2-3-1 lately preferred by Brian Schmetzer.

Possible starting lineups of the teams:
Toronto FC: Irwin Clinton - Drew Moor, Nick Hagglund, Eriq Zavaleta - Justin Morrow, Michael Bradley, Will Johnson, Armando Cooper, Jonathan Osorio - Sebastian Giovinco, Jozy Altidore (3-5-2 formation)

Seattle Sounders: Stefan Frei - Tyrone Mears, Chad Marshall, Roman Torres, Joevin Jones - Osvaldo Alonso, Cristian Roldan - Erik Friberg, Nicolas Lodeiro, Jordan Morris - Nelson Valdez (4-2-3-1 formation)
