South Stand Report : Toronto v Real Salt Lake

Toronto FC vs UANL Tigres: CCL Quarter-Final Away Leg – Can TFC Tame The Tigres Twice?

Toronto FC vs Tigres ~ 10pm ET ~ El Volcan ~ TSN4/5 Can they do it again?  After a convincing second half in the home leg saw TFC emerge victorious 2-1 over the Tigres, can Toronto do what few teams have done before?

South Couch Report : Toronto v UANL Tigres

The Part I Write Before : Scared. Not looking forward to this in many ways. Wish I was there though. Bold Predictions : Gignac scores Toronto doesn’t Sadness On to the Match : 1’ – Figures Gignac is on the bench. Now I’m slightly less scared. Just slightly. 23’ – Tigres just put half of Toronto offside on that free kick. That was amazing to watch. 39’ – bit of pinball in the Tigres penalty area and but the ball was...
