• This will be the 17th MLS meeting between Toronto and Montreal, and the third in the playoffs. Following Montreal’s 3-2 win in the first leg, the series now stands at 6W-6L-4D. The Impact have won four of the last six meeting between the two teams, including both playoff games in the series (both played in Montreal). Toronto’s record against Montreal at home is 3W-1L-3D. The scoreline in all three home wins would see Toronto advance at the end of 90 minutes on Wednesday.
  • Toronto has won their last three home games, and only lost three of the 19 MLS home games they played in 2016 (10W-6D). The scoreline in nine of the 10 Toronto home wins would see them advance at the end of 90 minutes on Wednesday, while the 10th would see the game go to overtime. They have only kept two clean sheets in their last nine home games.
  • Montreal has won all four playoff games this season, outscoring their opponents 10-5 on the way. They have only kept two clean sheets in their last 12 league games. The Impact have only lost twice in their last seven away MLS games (4W-1D). Neither scoreline in the loss would be sufficient to see the Impact advance or extend the game into extra time.
  • Michael Bradley led all players in the first leg with 97 touches. No other player had more than 67. 97 touches is tied for the fifth-most of any player this MLS postseason.
  • Ignacio Piatti had two key passes on Wednesday night, meaning he has created at least two chances in all four of Montreal’s postseason games this year. Piatti’s nine chances created this postseason are second only to Nicolas Lodeiro’s 11.
  • Jozy Altidore scored and assisted in the first leg, meaning he now has 10 goals or assists in his last seven appearances for Toronto FC. Altidore’s headed goal in the first leg was the first headed goal he had scored in 2016. (Last headed goal was on the last day of the 2015 regular season, also against Montreal).
  • In the 1,176 minutes that Matteo Mancosu has played for Montreal this year, the team averages 1.7 goals per 90 minutes played. In the 2,471 minutes they have played without him this year, the number falls down to 1.3 goals scored per 90 minutes played.
  • Including the playoffs, Laurent Ciman and Victor Cabrera are first and second in MLS in interceptions, with 139 and 122 respectively.
  • There has been an average of 3.3 goals across the last six meetings between the two teams in MLS action.
  • In the 23 games that Clint Irwin has started for Toronto this year (including postseason), the team record is 9W-8L-6D with an average of 1.6 goals for and 1.3 goals against. In the 15 games he has not started, the team record is 8W-2L-5D with an average of 1.8 goals for and 0.9 goals against.
