It has not been a week like any other for New York City FC. There is no doubt that all the events that followed have brought a lot of luck to the Blues. New York will definitely want to take advantage of the luck that turns on the side of the City.

Ronny's job for Sunday will be to channel this emotion and ensure that the intensity is supported by the discipline and the great intelligence of the game, especially crucial in knockout games of this nature.

The four-month suspension of the season could not have been positive for the chemistry or cohesion of any team, but it gave a new manager in a new league the opportunity to study new opponents and past New York City matches to learn more about his team.

In Toronto, in particular, Deila said: “The most important is to stop their attacking game.

“If you can prevent them from creating overloads and going too far in the third attacker, the attacking players will not have the opportunity to take the ball wherever they want.

“It's about working hard and not letting them get what they want. The game against Toronto (in March) didn't play well enough, so now we have a better chance. It is a good test for where we are now. "
