MLS Week 9 | BMO Field, Toronto ON
Kickoff: 2:00pm CT
Referee: Alan Kelly
Assistant Referees: Brian Dunn, Logan Brown
4th Official: Nima Saghafi
VAR: Kevin Terry Jr
The Fire invoked some #ScamGang mojo last week with their smash-and-grab win over the New York Red Bulls. Now the onus is on them to prove they didn’t just get lucky.
They’re on the road this week and lining up against the defending MLS Cup Champions, who have somehow managed to put together a worse start to the season than the Fire and are coming off a demoralizing loss in the CONCACAF Champions League Final.
They’re tired, they’re burned out, and they’re demoralized. If the Fire can’t capitalize on that, then... I don’t know what to tell you.
