Greenville Triumph SC (7-6-5) head to BMO Field to play their first international match of the season against Toronto FC II (6-7-5).
What to Watch For:
Humble and Hungry: Greenville has won 3 of their last 4 games, making strong moves towards the postseason and within USL League One's Power Rankings. For Coach John Harkes, the most important thing his squad can do is continue to stay disciplined on the field and in their team mentality, realizing there are still things to accomplish.
Clash of the Leaders: Toronto FC II boasts a strong attacking front, currently tied for 2nd in the league with 30 goals compared to the Triumph's 8th ranked 17 goals. On the flip side, the Triumph has conceded the least amount goals (13) this season compared to Toronto's 30 allowed goals which ranks at 2nd most in the league.
Open It Up: Part of what makes Toronto a high scoring team is their ability to stretch other teams out of shape and work effectively in a more open game. Greenville will have to be comfortable keeping the game in front of them for periods of time while looking for quality moments to expose the gaps.
