Our prediction for this MLS match:
Vancouver Whitecaps and Minnesota United face each other in a highly-anticipated MLS game at BC Place. Vancouver Whitecaps are undefeated in the previous three league fixtures, but they will have a mountain to climb in Sunday’s clash. It has to be noted that both Lucas Cavallini and Maxime Crepeau represent Canada at the 2021 Gold Cup finals. The Loons, on the other hand, aim to build on back-to-back wins over Seattle Sounders and Portland Timbers.
Minnesota United are more of a team than Vancouver Whitecaps, and we predict that they will prove their worth on the field. Goalkeeper Dayne St. Clair is on international duty with Canada, while Michael Boxall is out of contention through injury. In their last meeting in the Major League Soccer Minnesota United defeated Vancouver Whitecaps 1-0, which is yet another reason why away win should be considered.
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.

Highlighted Team (Minnesota United):
Based in the Minneapolis-Saint Paul area, Minnesota United are a professional soccer club that will compete in the Western Conference in the Major League Soccer from 2017. The Loons will make their MLS debut against Portland Timbers on March 4, 2017 and, no doubt, they have big ambitions for the forthcoming season.
