Our prediction for this MLS match:
Out-of-form Los Angeles FC will look to climb to the playoffs berth when they take on Vancouver Whitecaps at their BC Place. Los Angeles are on a three-game losing run in the Major League Soccer, but the bookies still see them as favourites to win Sunday’s clash. Despite failing to find the net in the defeat to Atlanta United, Carlos Vela will be the man to watch in the away team. Both Arango and Cifuentes are pushing for a start.
The Canadian outfit, on the other hand, aim to build on a 2-1 win over Austin. Vancouver Whitecaps are undefeated in the previous seven league fixtures, and they are surely capable of matching the out-of-sorts visitors at home ground. A close encounter is on the cards at BC Place, and we believe that punters from all four corners of the world can find value in betting on draw. Canadian duo Cavallini – Gutierrez remains on the sidelines for the home team.
Highlighted Player (Fredy Montero):
Born in Campo de la Cruz, Colombia on July 26, 1987, Fredy Montero is a pacey forward who plays for Vancouver Whitecaps in the Major League Soccer. Montero played for famous Portuguese club Sporting Lisbon from 2014 to 2016 and the Lions and during that period the Lions won Taca da Liga on two occasions and one Taca de Portugal trophy.
In 2019 he moved to Vancover Whitecaps, signing a permanent deal with the MLS club. Fredy Montero made his MLS debut in a 3-2 loss to Montreal Impact on March 3, 2019. As for his international career, the Vancouver footballer played his first match for the Colombia national team on May 9, 2007 in a 4-0 win over Panama.
The striker scored his first goal for los Cafeteros against Catalonia on December 29, 2008. Fredy Montero’s main position is second striker, but he is used as a centre-forward as well. His preferred foot is right and his contract with the Canadian outfit should expire in December, 2020.
Highlighted Team (Los Angeles FC):
Seeing that Los Angeles FC will be competing in Major League Soccer from the 2018 season, the club chiefs did well to reinforce the squad. Several high-profile players joined the club in the winter of 2018, with Mexican ace Carlos Vela being the biggest name to sign a deal with LAFC.
The new expansion team will host their rivals at Banc of California, the stadium which is planned to be opened on April 29, 2018. The venue should hold up to 22,000 spectators. Los Angeles FC will be coached by Bob Bradley in the 2018 MLS campaign and they will be wearing black and gold kits in the USA professional soccer league. Speaking of their bitterest rivals, there will be fireworks when Los Angeles FC face LA Galaxy in the Major League Soccer.
District 9 Ultras and Black Army 1850 are considered the club's biggest supporters groups and it has to be noted that they used to support Chivas USA. Los Angeles FC were founded on October 30, 2014.
