Toronto FC secured a playoff berth after a 1-1 draw with Los Angeles FC at the Banc of California Stadium on Saturday night. The Reds also extended their unbeaten streak in league play to eight games.

Tsubasa Endoh opened the scoring for Toronto in the 19th minute before Carlos Vela buried a late penalty in second-half stoppage time to salvage a draw for TFC.

TFC currently sits in fourth place with 46 points in the Eastern Conference. Toronto would guarantee a home playoff date at BMO Field in the first round if it finishes in the top four in the East.
