Allan Cruz, Luciano Acosta score as FC Cincinnati downs Toronto FC, 2-0

ORLANDO – FC Cincinnati had two winnable matches this week it needed to have, and it took both.

After defeating Chicago Fire FC on the road on Wednesday, an unchanged FC Cincinnati starting lineup got the job done again.

FCC scored early through Allan Cruz in the opening minutes and added an insurance tally from Luciano Acosta with 20-plus minutes remaining to defeat Toronto FC, 2-0, Saturday at Exploria Stadium.

Cruz broke in on goal alone in the fifth minute and finished with ease. The goal his first of 2021.

Acosta's tally in the 68th minute – his second goal of the year and his first since the April 17 season-opener at Nashville – all but secured the points for Cincinnati (3-5-1).

Acosta dribbled past MLS and U.S. men's national team veteran Michael Bradley prior to unleashing his curling effort, which effectively killed off a resurgent Toronto attack that threatening multiple times to equalize at 1-1.
