Reds, Crew draw MLS East final first leg

Nov 22, 2017 - 3:45 AM Toronto FC and the Columbus Crew have played out a 0-0 draw in the first leg of the Major League Soccer (MLS) eastern conference final.

Reds goalkeeper Alexander Bono made a save on the Crew's Harrison Afful in the 85th minute on Tuesday to preserve the draw.

Toronto played without Sebastian Giovinco (16 goals, six assists) and Jozy Altidore (15 goals and six assists) because of one-game suspensions.

Giovinco was out because of yellow cards he received in the conference quarter-final against the New York Red Bulls. Altidore was given a red card in the second leg.

Crew midfielder Artur had a 25-metre blast in the 73rd minute that just missed the right post before a sellout crowd of 21,289 at Mapfre Stadium.

The second leg will be played on November 29 in Toronto.
