Toronto boosted their chances of winning the Supporters' Shield by overcoming Inter Miami.

Former Juventus midfielder Blaise Matuidi opened the scoring for Inter Miami with his first MLS goal.

But Toronto would win after conceding the opening goal for the third time this season, which is tied for the most with San Jose Earthquakes, as per Opta.

Ayo Akinola scored a fine equaliser after outmuscling his opponent before Gonzalo Higuain almost responded for Inter Miami, hitting the crossbar with a powerful 20-yard effort in the 79th minute.

Instead, Alejandro Pozuelo tucked away an 84th-minute penalty for the winner for Toronto.

Pozuelo has scored each of his past seven penalties for Toronto in MLS.

Valentin Castellanos scored a hat-trick to inspire New York City to a 5-2 derby win over the Red Bulls.

Castellanos became just the second player to net a hat-trick in the Hudson River Derby, joining David Villa (2017).

Kacper Przybylko opened the scoring from the penalty spot approaching the half-hour mark, following a handball in the area.

Chicago's chances of a comeback were dealt a blow nine minutes before half-time, Francisco Calvo sent off after a tackle on Alejandro Bedoya.

However, they managed to find an equaliser prior to the break as Robert Beric headed in from close range.

But Philadelphia scored what proved to be the winner in the 65th minute, when Cory Burke headed in a cross from Olivier Mbaizo.

According to Opta, Union became the first team to win their first eight home matches of an MLS season since San Jose in 2002, when the Earthquakes claimed their first 10.

The Timbers clinched a spot in the play-offs thanks to a 5-2 thrashing of the struggling LA Galaxy.

Jaroslaw Niezgoda scored a brace for Portland, who were 3-0 up after 30 minutes following Diego Valeri's penalty.

What does the future hold for Kylian Mbappe?

For so long, the Paris Saint-Germain forward has been tipped to join Real Madrid.

However, Mbappe is believed to be attracted to the idea of leaving Parc des Princes for Anfield.

 

TOP STORY – MBAPPE INTRIGUED BY LIVERPOOL

Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe is interested in a move to Premier League champions Liverpool, according to Le Parisien.

Mbappe is contracted to PSG until 2022 but the France international forward has reportedly made it clear he has no plans to extend his deal in Paris.

He has long been linked with LaLiga champions Real Madrid, though the 21-year-old is attracted to Liverpool's style of play. Barcelona have also emerged as a possible destination.

 

ROUND-UP

Zinedine Zidane retains the backing of Madrid following last week's shock defeat to newly promoted Cadiz, says AS. Head coach Zidane has come in for criticism after Madrid's first loss of the season. While delivering LaLiga glory last term, Zidane is reportedly under pressure to succeed in the Champions League following their last-16 exit in 2019-20.

- The Daily Star says Arsenal outcast Mesut Ozil is wanted by MLS outfit DC United. Wayne Rooney previously played for DC between 2018 and 2020.

- Todofichajes claims PSG and United are interested in Inter midfielder Christian Eriksen, who has struggled to establish himself in Milan since arriving from Tottenham in January.

Tottenham are close to agreeing a contract extension with Spurs star Son Heung-min, reports The Athletic.

Orlando City reached the MLS play-offs for the first time in their history, while Columbus Crew also clinched a spot in the post-season.

A last-gasp 1-1 draw against New York Red Bulls was enough for Orlando to secure a place in the MLS Cup play-offs on Sunday.

Orlando were stunned in stoppage time – Brian White's 95th-minute equaliser cancelling out Nani's 56th-minute penalty at Red Bull Arena.

But after Toronto edged Atlanta United 1-0, Orlando were assured of their first trip to the play-offs, having entered the league in 2015.

"We've put ourselves in a good position," Orlando forward Daryl Dike said. "Obviously we just made the play-offs today, but I think we're going to carry on. The goal wasn't just playoffs. We're not done now. We just keep going and keep going.

"We want three points every single game and we want to finish the highest in the table. That's the main goal."

Orlando – fourth in the Eastern Conference – are in the midst of a club-record 12-game unbeaten streak, per Stats Perform.

The Crew's 3-1 win over New York City, coupled with Toronto's triumph, sent the team back to the play-offs after missing out last season.

Columbus also snapped a four-match winless streak to move third in the east, two points ahead of Orlando and a point behind second-placed Philadelphia Union.

Elsewhere, LA Galaxy ended a six-game losing skid by topping Vancouver Whitecaps 1-0 thanks to substitute Kai Koreniuk's late winner.

Los Angeles FC's Christian Torres (16 years, six months and three days) became the youngest player to score in MLS since Sporting Kansas City's Gianluca Busio (16 years, four months and 20 days) in 2018, according to Stats Perform.

Caden Clark made MLS history as New York Red Bulls and high-flying Toronto drew 1-1, while it was a bad day for both Los Angeles teams.

Clark – aged 17 years, four months and 18 days – became the youngest player to score in his first two MLS appearances on Wednesday, per Opta.

Hours after joining the Red Bulls, Clark capped his debut with a goal in Saturday's 1-0 win over Atlanta United.

Clark became the youngest player to score his maiden goal for the Red Bulls since Jozy Altidore in 2006.

He continued where he left off against Toronto, netting the equaliser with 13 minutes remaining midweek.

Following Alejandro Pozuelo's 23rd-minute penalty, Clark earned the visiting Red Bulls a point by firing a shot into the top corner of the net from outside the box.

The Red Bulls are seventh in the Eastern Conference, while Toronto – already play-off bound – remain top through 18 games.

Elsewhere, reigning Supporters' Shield holders Los Angeles FC and struggling LA Galaxy were beaten.

Lucas Cavallini's brace lifted Vancouver Whitecaps to a 2-1 victory against fourth-placed LAFC.

As for the Western Conference's bottom side – the Galaxy – they were swept aside 4-0 by San Jose Earthquakes in the Cali Clasico.

Former Manchester United and Real Madrid striker Javier Hernandez was substituted early in the second half, with the Galaxy only managing four goals in the 652 minutes 'Chicharito' has been on the pitch this season.

It was a sixth consecutive defeat for the slumping Galaxy as the Earthquakes moved within a point of LAFC in the west.

Gonzalo Higuain will have a familiar figure alongside him at Inter Miami after the MLS franchise signed the Argentine superstar's older brother Federico.

They will be the 18th pair of siblings to play together in the league, Inter Miami said, after securing a deal to bring in Federico Higuain from DC United.

The 35-year-old only joined DC United in March, taking on a player-coach role after ending an eight-year association with Columbus Crew.

Inter Miami brought in 32-year-old former Argentina striker Gonzalo Higuain from Juventus in September, and they hope the brothers can bring success to the newly established team, who are contesting their debut season.

Inter Miami are owned by a group that includes former Manchester United and Real Madrid star David Beckham.

Sporting director Paul McDonough said: "Federico has been a great player in this league.

"We were thrilled to add more attacking depth, experience and playmaking ability to our roster when this opportunity presented itself."

An attacking midfielder, Federico Higuain has scored 61 goals and had 68 assists in 217 MLS games.

Inter Miami will send $50,000 in 2021 general allocation money to DC United as compensation for the deal.

Gonzalo Higuain scored his first goal for Inter Miami and it was one to remember, while LA Galaxy were routed 6-3 by Portland Timbers in MLS.

Higuain converted an 81st-minute free-kick and it proved to be the winner as Inter Miami defeated New York Red Bulls 2-1 on Wednesday.

The former Argentina international, who joined David Beckham's Inter Miami from Serie A champions Juventus, missed a penalty on debut last month.

In his third appearance for Inter Miami, Higuain earned a free-kick with nine minutes remaining and stepped up to beat Red Bulls goalkeeper David Jensen with a powerful shot into the top corner.

Higuain's first MLS goal came via a direct free-kick after not scoring a set-piece in 428 matches during his time in the top five European leagues, per Opta.

"That's my role," Higuain said in a post-match news conference. "I've been playing in the best leagues in the world and that's my main function, to score."

The Red Bulls had led through Omir Fernandez's 53rd-minute opener, before Matias Pellegrini equalised two minutes later in New Jersey.

Inter Miami are 12th in the 14-team Eastern Conference with 14 points from 16 games, while the Red Bulls are six points better off in seventh.

The visiting Timbers defeated the struggling Galaxy in a wild nine-goal showdown in Carson, California.

Portland led 2-1 at half-time before scoring another four goals in a thrilling encounter at Dignity Health Sports Park.

Felipe Mora and Jeremy Ebobisse each finished with braces as the Timbers scored a joint-club record six goals for the second time in four matches, having not scored more than five times in any of their first 337 MLS matches, via Opta.

Ayo Akinola headed in a Tony Gallacher cross from the left approaching the hour-mark to bring Greg Vanney's side level.

Pozuelo scored what proved to be the winner in the 76th minute, heading in at the back post following a corner.

As Toronto won for the 10th time in their past 13 meetings with the Union, Pozuelo has been directly involved in 10 goals since the MLS regular season resumed in August, as per Opta.

Toronto joined Columbus on 31 points atop the Eastern Conference after the Crew were held to a 2-2 draw by Dallas.

Roldan produced a clinical finish from a Joao Paulo pass to make it 3-0 just after the hour-mark, with Seattle winning despite Sebastian Lletget's late goal for the LA Galaxy.
