Charlotte FC vs Toronto Betting Picks
Perhaps of the scariest stadiums in Major League Soccer for away teams, it has been everything except that as of late. According to soccer news, the Crown lost three of their last four games at Bank of America Stadium.
Before that run, home field had given the team an advantage. Charlotte conceded a goal or less in seven of their last eight games at home. In addition, they had four clean sheets over that period.
Christian Lattanzio was not satisfied with how his side moved toward the opening 45 minutes at home to Orlando City last week. He described his group as too tensed while trying to please the home crowd. Thus, they failed to get the job done.
While they played with significantly more desire in the final part, the Crown were at fault for being too aggressive. Thus, their opponents managed to get behind the home team defense several times. Also, Tesho Akindele scored the winning goal in the 89th minute.
