The Montreal Impact are a win or scoreless draw away from the CONCACAF Champions League for the second-straight season, but Toronto FC has the firepower to bring a fifth Voyageurs Cup in six years tonight.
After a 1-1 draw in Toronto, the Reds will need to score to win the first finals match-up between the two teams since 2008 (won by then-NASL side Montreal). Doneil Henry scored for Toronto in the first leg, while Justin Mapp tallied for the Impact.
There’s a free stream of the match here, starting at 7:30 p.m. ET.
A win would be a feather in the cap of new Montreal coach Frank Klopas, who has endured a tough start to his tenure as Impact boss.
“It’s up to us to seize this type of opportunity at home,” said head coach Frank Klopas. “Everyone should be excited about that. Toronto is very good team with quality players. But, with some good results, our confidence is rising and I think that we can be pretty optimistic about the future. And right now our focus is on winning the cup Wednesday.”
The winner has been drawn into a CONCACAF Champions League group with New York Red Bulls and CD FAS of El Salvador.
