BY THE NUM­BERS

The Western Star - - Sports -

Toronto FC con­tin­ues to chal­lenge the num­bers this sea­son. In se­cur­ing a play­off berth with last week­end’s 4-0 home win over the San Jose Earth­quakes, Toronto joined a list of five other clubs to clinch with six weeks left in the sea­son (D.C. United, 2006; L.A. Galaxy, 2011; San Jose, 2012; Seat­tle, 2014; and FC Dal­las, 2016).

Of note, only the 2011 Galaxy went on to win the MLS Cup. Toronto, which has scored 17 goals in its last five league games, goes into the week­end with a goal dif­fer­en­tial of plus-33 (59 goals for, 26 goals against). The only team to have a higher goal dif­fer­en­tial (41) over a full sea­son is the 1998 Galaxy.
