FC Cincinnati vs. Toronto FC preview: Odds, how to watch, TV channel, kick-off time, head-to-head stats and team news

Toronto FC's life under new coach John Herdman gets off to a challenging start with a visit to reigning Supporters' Shield winners FC Cincinnati.

Toronto did not make many offseason additions, instead hoping that a culture change will get the most out of well-paid stars Lorenzo Insigne and Federico Bernardeschi, who have not led the team to the heights expected when they joined.

Cincinnati, meanwhile, lost a couple of key players but reloaded. Star striker Brandon Vazquez moved to Monterrey in Mexico and was replaced by MLS veteran Corey Baird, and center back Yerson Mosquera returned to Wolverhampton Wanderers in England after his loan and was replaced by United States Men's National Team defender Miles Robinson.
