Bmo Field sees Wednesday action as Phili take on Columbus – 7:30pm GMT.

As it stands, Columbus will go to Bmo Field in twelfth place, Phili are currently in eleventh.

Toronto FC face his opponents with equal points, with both keen to make progress

With Phili having secured all three points on their two previous outings, Bob Bradley’s men will doubtless be looking to retain their run after this fixture.

Also, league success is all about winning football matches, any way you can, so six losses in nine meetings would not make this a successful season for Phili. They currently stand eleventh in the League, with 18 points for a total of 5 wins, 8 losses and 3 draws having won five games, drawn three games, and lost eight meetings.

Playing at home, Phili have won five matches and lost three fixtures.

Victory for Toronto FC would take their points tally to 21 so far this season.

Injury and illness have depleted Bob Bradley’s Phili and they will likely be missing one key personnel for Wednesday’s match.

Columbus Crew face their opponents, equal on points, both teams will doubtless be keen to make progress

Columbus will want to win this next game, if only to move on from their two previously disappointing results, a draw at Real Salt Lake and also against Charlotte FC.

Also, with two draws in two meetings, Columbus need to develop a strategy for getting over the line in games. With an twelfth position in the league and 4 wins, 5 losses and 6 draws, they currently have 18 points in the League having won four fixtures, drawn six matches, and lost five meetings.

With a poor record on the road, which amounts to one win, five draws, and two defeats, it is hard to predict a positive outcome for Columbus as they travel once more.

Columbus Crew will see 21 points so far this season, should they secure a win.

Columbus’s squad has depth, but even so, Caleb Porter is likely to be missing eight of they key players when they start Wednesday’s game.
