Our prediction for this MLS match:
PNC Stadium will host Sunday’s MLS game between Houston Dynamo and Vancouver Whitecaps, the two teams who sit in the bottom of the table. Houston Dynamo aim to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to Sporting Kansas City, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at Vancouver. Head coach Paulo Roberto Nagamura has no fresh injury worries, and he is likely to field the best possible side in Sunday’s clash.
The Canadian outfit, on the other hand, kicked off the new MLS campaign with a 4-0 loss to Columbus, with the team sharing the spoils with New York City at the weekend. Since both sides are determined to record their first triumph of the season, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score. Brian White is sidelined with injury, but he should be the only absentee in the away side.
Highlighted Team (Vancouver Whitecaps):
Vancouver Whitecaps are yet another Canadian side that compete in Major League Soccer. Vancouver began play in the USA top flight in 2011 and one year later they became the first Canadian outfit to book their place in the MLS Cup play-offs. However, star-studded Los Angeles Galaxy proved to be a big catch for the Whitecaps in the knockout round. Vancouver, though, did remarkably well to win the Canadian Championship in 2015, with the team beating Montreal Impact in the title game.
In 2016 they made it to the final of the tournament as well, but Toronto FC eventually won the trophy. The Whitecaps are owned by Greg Kerfoot, Steve Luczo, Jeff Mallett and Steve Steve Nash, the former NBA star, and they play their home matches at BC Place. Speaking of MLS games, the capacity of the venue is 22.120 and you should know that the stadium was opened back in 1983. The Caps wear white shirts and white shorts when playing at home, while the colour of their away kit is blue.
