Vancouver Whitecaps vs Colorado Rapids Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Vancouver Whitecaps were able to come up with a late goal to grab a 2-2 draw with Columbus Crew during the weekend. Vancouver’s top marksman Fredy Montero scored the opening goal in the 15th minute, but it took Ola Kamara just four minutes to level the scores. Kekuta Manneh’s outstanding long-range effort put Columbus Crew in front, but Tony Tchani’s late equaliser grabbed a point for the home team. Colorado Rapids were also able to come up with a late goal, but to get a 1-1 draw with New York City. Thomas McNamara’s fabulous strike put to the away team in front, but Dominique Badji’s late equaliser gave Colorado a valuable point. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Even though Colorado are unbeaten in their last two games, they are up against a form team like Vancouver Whitecaps. Robinson and his team clearly have set their sights on the 2017 MLS Cup. After having gone top, Vancouver will not be keen on relinquishing the spot anytime soon. Vancouver have won three out of the last five league matches, while the team have lost just once in the last eight matches at the BC Place stadium. I would go with a win for Vancouver Whitecaps.

Vancouver have scored more than two goals on an average in the last six games. Even though Colorado were able to keep a clean sheet in their last away game, the club has conceded nine in the last four away games. I see value in backing Vancouver Whitecaps to score more than 1.5 goals.

Vancouver Whitecaps win – 8/15

Vancouver Whitecaps to score over 1.5 goals – 4/6

Vancouver Whitecaps Preview

The steady ascent up the table now sees Vancouver Whitecaps topping the Western Conference at a crucial time. Following the latest round of league matches, Vancouver have established a one-point advantage over Portland Timbers in the second spot. More importantly, Carl Robinson’s team have played two fewer matches than Portland and this could potentially give them further opportunities to stretch their lead. A major factor behind the club winning four out of the last six matches is their forwards, who have netted 13 goals in these games. Fredy Montero, though, continues to lead the goalscoring charts at Vancouver with 12 goals.

Vancouver Whitecaps Team News

Matias Laba (cruciate ligament), David Edgar (knee), Brett Levis (cruciate ligament), and Christian Bolanos (knee) are the players missing for Vancouver Whitecaps manager Robinson.

Colorado Rapids Preview

After once again going through a terrible run of form, Colorado Rapids are seeing positive signs of being able to move away from the bottom of the Western Conference. The club are unbeaten in the last two matches, and the attitude displayed in the last two matches will please manager interim manager Steve Cooke. Results were not positive immediately after coming in as the replacement for Pablo Mastroeni, but four points from the last two matches is a positive sign. Furthermore, the club recently picked up a first away win of the season by beating Houston Dynamo. Dominique Badji is the leading scorer at Colorado Rapids with eight league goals.

Colorado Rapids Team News

Kevin Doyle (concussion) is the only player unavailable for Colorado Rapids.
