Toronto FC keeps on putting up impressive results in CONCACAF Champions League play, but continue to disappoint in MLS action.

The Canadian squad followed up their 1-1 draw against Mexican League leaders Santos Laguna on Wednesday with a flat performance in a 1-0 loss to Columbus at BMO Field on Saturday.

Toronto enjoyed an edge in possession on the day, but could not translate that into legitimate chances against a Crew side missing starting goalkeeper Wil Hesmer. The Crew nearly broke through in the first half after drawing a penalty, but Milos Kocic saved Milovan Mirosevic's penalty.

Mirosevic factored into the Crew's game-winning goal when he stripped Julian DeGuzman in midfield, sparking a counterattack led by Bernardo Anor, who worked a give-and-go with Olman Vargas before beating Kocic from 12 yards out for the only goal of the match.

Here are the match highlights:

The victory improved Columbus to 2-1 on the season, while the defeat dropped Toronto FC to 0-3 in MLS play.

What did you think of the match? Starting to wonder if Toronto FC is destined for another awful MLS season? Think Columbus is a legitimate contender in the East?
