MLS Weekend Preview – Aug. 21-22

Aug. 18, 2010 - Toronto, CANAD - TORONTO (CANADA), 17/08/2010.- Canadian Toronto FC's Miguel Angel ''Nista'' Ferrer (L) fights for the ball with Mexican Cruz Azul's Alejandro Castro (R), during their CONCACAF Champions League soccer match at the BMO Field in Toronto, Canada, 17 August 2010. Toronto won 2-1.

Fresh off a 2-1 win over Cruz Azul in CONCACAF Champions League play in mid-week, Toronto FC will try to ride that momentum when it hosts the New York Red Bulls Saturday afternoon at BMO Field.

The Red Bulls and Toronto are both chasing Columbus in the Eastern Conference standings, and with the Crew hosting Colorado later on Saturday, picking up some points in this match is important for both sides.

Here’s a look at this weekend’s games:
