MLS – Season Continues – Vancouver Whitecaps v Houston Dynamo on Match-day 33
MLS action on Saturday as Caps and Houston meet at BC Place Stadium – 5:30am GMT.
This clash sees eleventh placed Caps, welcome twelfth placed Houston to BC Place Stadium.
Vancouver Whitecaps have 27 points to their name, going into this tie
Caps’s recent run of poor form will be worrying for manager Vanni Sartini, with a 1-1 draw to Nashville SC in their last fixture, which followed a defeat to Chicago Fire. The Village will be fired up for this next match, but mustn’t throw caution to the wind.
Also, Caps seem unable to get over the line on a consistent basis, with three draws in four fixtures. With an eleventh position in the league and 0 wins, 0 losses and 0 draws, they currently have 27 points in the League.
When Caps host Houston, they will do so on the back of five victories, three darts, and three defeats on their own ground.
Winning this fixture will see Vancouver Whitecaps on 30 points.
Houston Dynamo have so far accrued 25 points in this season of the MLS
Houston will take a huge positive from their recent 6-0 win against Philadelphia Union at Subaru Park.
Also, suffering 11 losses in 16 meetings is a terrible run of form for any club, Paulo Nagamura’s Houston will know this and will be hopeful of turning it around. Their position is twelfth in the League and they have 25 points, that is, 0W, 0L and 0D.
It must be a worrying prospect for Houston to go back on the road, with a bud run of away performances under their belt this season. So far they have only secured three wins and eight losses to the home team.
A win in this fixture would take Houston Dynamo’s points to 28 in the League.
