Impact, TFC, Each Announce Attacking Line-ups.

Pre-match Team News.

MLS: Toronto FC at Montreal Impact Eric Bolte-USA TODAY Sports

BMO Field, Toronto.

Positive attacking line-up by Wilmer Cabrera for his first game in charge.

Impact go 4-4-2, with Bojan, Tabla and Lappalainen all getting starts. Okwonkwo and Jackson-Hamel on the bench.

Sagna starts in central defence alongside Raitala, Brault-Guillard comes in at right-back.

The big news from Toronto FC is the dropping of Alejandro Pozuelo to the bench. There’s a feeling he slows things down when on the ball. Both new TFC forward signings start; Benezet to operate wide right, with Gallardo in a more central striking role alongside Altidore.

It’s the first time each have started a game together at TFC.
