Toronto FC 5 – 1 D.C. United

Toronto hosted at BMO Field D.C. United for its first game in the Audi MLS Playoffs since winning the 2017 MLS Cup.

A goal-less half an hour came to an end with Toronto’s Marky Delgado scoring off an attempted clearance by DC’s goalkeeper Bill Hamid (32′).  The game then went again into an hour-long drought, and just when it seemed as if the hosts bagged the win, the visitors got a lifeline deep into extra time.  DC’s Lukas Rodriguez scored an equalizer off Wayne Rooney’s corner kick (90+3’).

A minute later, Toronto claimed back their lead, with Richie Laryea scoring from the right corner of the goal box off an assist by Michael Bradley and Nick DeLeon (93’).  And Jonathan Osoriao immediately scoring from close range gave Toronto the insurance (95’).
