Will Toronto break the record for the highest MLS points tally?

Toronto FC are on course to record the highest MLS points tally in history. They won 4-0 against at LA at the weekend, taking them to 62 points for the 2017 regular season.

LA Galaxy’s 68 points is the current record for the highest MLS points tally in one season. That came back in 1998, but Toronto only need seven points from five games to better it.

Greg Vanney’s side have been impressive this season. Their recent form shows exactly why they are closing in on the record. They have won six games in a row and are unbeaten in their last 11.

Hunt for the highest MLS points tally – Toronto’s remaining fixtures:

Toronto FC vs Montreal Impact

New England Revolution vs Toronto FC

Toronto FC vs New York Red Bulls

Toronto FC vs Montreal Impact

Atlanta United vs Toronto FC

Previous results:

Toronto picked up eight points from the fixtures they have already played against the teams they are due to face. As mentioned, they only need seven points to break the record.

While this theory is only hypothetical it gives some grounding that they stand a good chance on previous results alone.

Home form:

Their remaining fixtures also give them a strong chance given that they have three games at BMO Field. Toronto have won 11 of their 14 home games this season, drawing the other three.

Though it is difficult to predict the outcome of MLS fixtures, Toronto fans must be feeling confident that they can break the record. Although it will be an exciting record to hold, Toronto will be more focused on winning the Supporter’s Shield and continuing their good form as they head into the playoffs.

If breaking the record comes down to their final game of the season it will be some spectacle at the impressive Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

Do you think Toronto will break the record for the highest points tally in MLS history?
