Louisville City FC hits the road for their final regular season road match when they take on Toronto FC II at Lamport Stadium on Friday night. LouCity heads to ‘The Six’ on a three-game win streak, most recently downing Atlanta United 2, 4-1, at Coolray Field.
Last Time Against Toronto FC II
Louisville and Toronto have met just the one time this season after having to postpone from a scheduled July date to an August evening due to Louisville’s success in the U.S. Open Cup. After an early Toronto goal, Ilija Ilic found the back of the net for Louisville to knot the score at one. After the half, it was a one-sided affair with Toronto scoring three more times to make the final score 4-1 in their favor.
Scouting Toronto FC II
Sitting in last place in the Eastern Conference and officially eliminated from playoff contention, Toronto FC II defeated Charleston last weekend to move to 4-23-4 on the season. While scoring for Toronto is relatively evenly distributed, Tsubasa Endoh leads the team with eight goals. Endoh scored half of Toronto’s goals in their meeting with Louisville.
With three matches remaining in the regular season, Louisville has a chance to set a new club record for most points in a season. A win Friday night would tie them with the number of points earned in 2016 at 60. A Friday win plus two points in the final two matches would tie the club for most points in a season, matching 2017 at 62. Moreover, two or more wins in the final three matches would set a new club record for regular season points earned.
