Nippert Stadium sees Thursday action as Cin take on Caps – 3:00am GMT.

Caps currently sit in tenth place as they travel to sixth placed Cin.

With the MLS season well into its stride, Cincinnati have managed to gain 26 points

Cin have suffered at the hands of Red Bulls and New England Revolution in their previous two matches, with two successive draws. They go into this game with the hope of taking all three points.

Also, Cin are quickly becoming the MLS’s draw specialists, having recorded three in their last three matches. With 26 points (0W, 0L and 0D), they are established in sixth position in the League.

Playing at home, Cin have won three fixtures, drawn two meetings, and lost four fixtures.

Vancouver Whitecaps go into this meeting with 24 points secured

It was a humbling defeat at the hands of Minnesota United for Vanni Sartini’s men in their last match, they will be hoping to get something out of this game for sure.

Also, Caps keep finding ways to win, having secured six victories in their last 10 matches is astonishing this season. Now they have 0 matches won, 0 games lost and 0 duels drawn; that’s why they currently sit in tenth place, with a total of 24 points.

It must be a worrying prospect for Caps to go back on the road, with a bud run of away performances under their belt this season. So far they have only secured two wins and seven defeats to the home team.

Victory for Vancouver Whitecaps would take their points tally to 27 so far this season.
