Toronto FC are just one point away from recording the greatest regular season in Major League Soccer history.

A 1-0 win over arch-rivals Montreal Impact thanks to Jozy Altidore's 16th-minute goal moved them to 68 points, tying the league record for the most points in a campaign set by LA Galaxy in 1998.

With one game left to play, Toronto have the chance to eclipse that record when they visit Atlanta United next Sunday.

At CenturyLink Field, the Seattle Sounders guaranteed themselves a spot in the play-offs with their 4-0 home victory over Dallas FC.

Goals from Victor Rodriguez, Will Bruin (2) and Lamar Neagle helped the defending MLS Cup champions secure a ninth consecutive post-season appearance.

Despite a 0-0 draw at Children's Mercy Park, Sporting Kansas City and the Houston Dynamo both clinched places in the MLS Cup play-offs.

Meanwhile, Nemanja Nikolic cemented his lead over his nearest Golden Boot rivals by scoring a hat-trick for Chicago Fire in their 3-0 victory over the Philadelphia Union.
