The CONCACAF Champions League Quarterfinal is going on right now. Toronto FC is currently beating the Los Angeles Galaxy 2-1, and we’re watching the game live on Fox Soccer. This game is being played in Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ontario, and it looks like they have a packed house. The Canadians support their soccer! In fact we just looked it up, and they have a sold out crowd of over 45,000… impressive.
Ryan Johnson scored Toronto’s first goal off a corner kick from Torsten Frings after 11 minutes. Five minutes later Toronto FC scored again. This time Danny Koevermans crossed the ball to Luis Silva who headed the ball right into the bottom corner of the goal. With the home team up 2-0, the crowd went wild.
Mike Magee scored the lone goal for the Galaxy off of a cross from Sean Franklin, and they haven’t been able to do much since. Right now the game is in it’s 87th minute, and… Landon Donovan just scored a 2nd goal for LA! Wow, now we have a game!
By the way, the new MLS season starts in just 3 days. We don’t have all the odds for the Whitecaps vs Impact game yet, but we have the point spread posted below. If you are looking for all the other bets available on Saturday’s games, see yesterday’s post.
Well the Toronto game just ended in a 2-2 draw. Donovan proves to be clutch again, and Toronto continues to struggle to close out games. It would have been nice to see the underdog win this one at home in front of a sold out crowd, but the MLS Champions proved to be too good to give this one away.
