How FCC avoided another too-close-for-comfort ending against Toronto

In many ways, FC Cincinnati’s 2-0 win over Toronto FC mimicked their match against Chicago just 72 hours before it.

Under the lights in Orlando on Saturday, FC Cincinnati struck first with a goal from Allan Cruz in the fifth minute. It came from a well-executed pass from Isaac Atanga which nabbed Cruz's first goal of the season.

But after, FC Cincinnati played back, while Toronto pressed on the gas pedal. In the minutes leading up to halftime, Toronto held the momentum. TFC put tight pressure on the Cincinnati defense while FCC struggled to get the ball past midfield without Toronto swooping in to steal possession.
