Vancouver Whitecaps vs Minnesota United Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Vancouver Whitecaps were able to register a third win in the last four league games, as they picked up a 3-2 win over Real Salt Lake. Cristian Techera’s opening goal in the 29th minute was cancelled out by Chris Wingert. However, second-half goals from Kendall Watson and Yordy Reyna appeared to have given a comfortable evening for Vancouver, but a late goal from Tony Beltran saw the game finish in a nervous manner. Minnesota United picked up a point from the home match against Philadelphia Union. The game finished as a 1-1 draw after Charles Sapong’s opener after just five minutes was cancelled out by Ethan Finlay’s equaliser in the 40th minute. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The away game represents a major issue for Minnesota United as the club have managed just one win in 13. They are up against a Vancouver Whitecaps outfit who have been on a strong run of form over the last few weeks. Vancouver have picked up three wins in the last five home matches while suffering just one defeat. I am extremely confident about a victory for Vancouver Whitecaps. The likelihood of both teams scoring in the game is significantly high. The Minnesota United outfit has scored in 10 out of the 13 away games this season. Vancouver Whitecaps have not kept a clean sheet in the last six home matches. I would go with both teams to score.

Vancouver Whitecaps win – 9/20

Both teams to score – 4/6

Vancouver Whitecaps scored over 1.5 goals in 8 out of their last 10 games played

Vancouver Whitecaps Preview

The recent run of form has propelled the Vancouver Whitecaps closer to the top two of the table. It is a major surprise, but Vancouver are now just three points behind the table leaders Portland – with three games in hand. There is every possibility manager Carl Robinson would be thinking about a top spot before the play-offs season begins. Vancouver have every possibility of building on the recent run of form, as the club are at home in the next three league matches. Vancouver have been let down by a mediocre away form, but they are not on the road until the end of September. Fredy Montero is the top scorer at Vancouver with 11 league goals.

Vancouver Whitecaps Team News

Matias Laba (cruciate ligament), David Edgar (knee), and Brett Levis (cruciate ligament) are the players unavailable for Vancouver Whitecaps.

Minnesota United Preview

The poor home form for Minnesota United continued as the club were unable to get a victory over Philadelphia Union. The club has managed just one win at the TCF bank stadium in the last seven. The lack of home wins have been the biggest factor behind Minnesota not being able to pull away from Colorado Rapids. The club recently picked up the first away win of the season, but it was only after capitalising on Chicago Fire’s recent misfortunes. Christian Ramirez is the top scorer at Minnesota with 11 league goals.

Minnesota United Team News

Bernardo Anor (muscle), Thomas de Villardi (Achilles tendon), Marc Burch (groin), Kevin Venegas (hamstring), Christian Ramirez (muscle), and Sam Cronin (unknown) remain on the sidelines for Minnesota United.
