CF Montréal: Kings of 'Canadian Classique' vs. Toronto FC?
Are CF Montréal the kings of the 'Canadian Classique' rivalry vs. Toronto FC?
Toronto vs. Montréal is one of the fiercest and most bitter rivalries in North American sports, and these two MLS sides are no exception as some of Canadian soccer's most exciting and memorable moments have come when they meet in league and domestic cup competition.
But it seems that as of late, there's been a bit of a shift in how evenly-contested the once-named 401 Derby has been, with Montréal adding two more wins to their rather-lopsided W column this week – on Saturday night in league play, and earlier this week to eliminate the Reds in the 2023 Canadian Championship quarter-finals.
While this video was recorded ahead of the weekend match-up (so +1 to the win columns to reinforce the point), the question remains the same: Have CF Montréal taken a commanding hold of this rivalry? We're joined by Hady Raphaël (@SoccerenFolie) to discuss!
