TORONTO – Toronto FC played to a scoreless tie with Sporting Kansas City in their home opener, a matchup of unbeaten MLS teams.

Toronto (1-0-3) had more chances on a wet, windy night, but was unable to finish off Sporting Kansas City (1-0-3) before a crowd of 27,909 at BMO Field.

Sebastian Giovinco, yet to score this season, almost broke the deadlock in the 59th minute but his free kick hit the crossbar.

Kansas City is now unbeaten in its last eight games against Toronto.

Toronto goalkeeper Clint Irwin went down and clutched his knee in the 37th minute when his left foot appeared to get stuck in the turf as he came out to make a save. Irwin, who was able to walk off gingerly, was slated to undergo an MRI exam on Saturday.
