Our football match prediction:
After recording three consecutive wins over the likes of Orlando City, Real Salt Lake and Minnesota United, Vancouver Whitecaps played out a thrilling 2-2 draw with Columbus Crew in their last league match. The Canadian outfit seem to be on top of their game at the moment and they are determined to retain top position in the standings. Vancouver Whitecaps are likely to go all guns blazing at Colorado Rapids, who sit in the ultimate place in the Western Conference and we predict that the hosts are going to pick up all three points from Sunday’s football match. A man to watch in the home team will be Colombia international Fredy Montero, who scored his 12th goal of the season at the weekend. The Rapids suffered four defeats in previous six league games and they are unlikely to spoil Vancouver’s party at BC Place Stadium this weekend.
Highlighted Player (Kendall Waston):
Kendall Waston is yet another Costa Rican footballer who plays in MLS. The Vancouver Whitecaps centre back started his senior career at Sarprissa of Costa Rica and he played for the likes of Carmelita, Nacional, Bayamon, UCR and Perez Zeledon (on loan) in the past as well. Waston moved to MLS in the summer of 2014, signing a deal with Vancouver Whitecaps. The Costa Rica international scored only two goals in 11 appearances for the club in the 2014 season, but the club chiefs decided to keep hold of him. He found the net twice in 30 league games in the 2015 MLS campaign, while scoring three goals in his last season with the Canadian club. Kendall Waston was born in San Jose, Costa Rica on January 1, 1988 and he made his debut for the Costa Rica national team in May, 2013 in a match against Canada. The Vancouver Whitecaps forward scored his first goal for los Ticos on December 16, 2015 in a 1-0 victory over Nicaragua.
Highlighted Team (Colorado Rapids):
Colorado Rapids are a Major League Soccer club and they compete in the USA professional soccer league as a member of the Western Conference. Colorado began their play in MLS back in 1996 and 14 years later they managed to win the MLS Cup trophy. The Rapids recorded a 2-1 win over FC Dallas in the final of the tournament, with George John scoring the winner for Gary Smith’s team in the extra time. Colorado made it to the MLS Cup final in 1997 as well, but D.C. United proved to be a big catch for the club in the title game. The Rapids play their home games at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park and the venue has been Colorado’s home ground since 2007. It has to be noted that the likes of Tim Howard, Carlos Valderama, Claudio Lopez and Jermaine Jones were all part of the club in the past. Colorado’s colours are red, sky blue and white, but they were yellow shirts and blue shorts when playing on the travels.
