Vancouver Whitecaps vs Seattle Sounders FC Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Vancouver Whitecaps were able to get back to winning ways at home after a 2-1 victory over Houston Dynamo. Fredy Montero’s early penalty provided Vancouver with relief, while Yordy Reyna doubled the joy in the 32nd minute with a spectacular goal. Even though Rommel Quioto pulled one back for the visitors, the home team were able to hold on for a win. Seattle Sounders produced a 2-1 comeback victory against Minnesota United to go top of the Western Conference. Ethan Finlay’s early goal was cancelled out by Chad Marshall’s header. Clint Dempsey scored a penalty deep into injury time to pick a win for Seattle. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Most of the good form for Seattle has been down to a string of home games, as the club have had only three away games in the last month. Seattle have managed three wins in the last four away games against Vancouver, who were able to pick up a win in the most recent game at the BC Place stadium. Recent form is a reason to back Seattle Sounders for a win in this game. There have been over 2.5 goals in five out of the last six games between the two clubs in all competitions. Even in terms of the games at the BC Place stadium, the last three matches have witnessed more than 2.5 goals. Seattle have scored 10 goals in the last five games, while Vancouver Whitecaps have nine goals in the same period. I would back over 2.5 goals in this game.

Seattle Sounders win – 2/1

Total goals over 2.5 – 8/15

Vancouver Whitecaps Preview

Vancouver’s patchy home form has led to the club picking up three wins but none of those have come in consecutive matches. Yet, it remains as one of the biggest factors that could help the club finish in the top six of the table. The latest win over Houston Dynamo saw Vancouver Whitecaps climb into the top six. The club have been let down by the away form, as they have only picked up four wins from 12 this season. Vancouver have been involved in two wins, two defeats, and one draw in a highly inconsistent spell over the last five matches. Fredy Montero has scored 10 league goals for Vancouver this season.

Vancouver Whitecaps Team News

Manager Carl Robinson will be without Brett Levis (cruciate ligament) and David Edgar (knee) due to injury.

Seattle Sounders FC Preview

The last few weeks have seen Seattle Sounders in stunning form. A return of four wins in the last five matches have enabled the club to go top of the table. Manager Brian Schmetzer will be hoping to establish a strong lead at the top. At the moment, the club are ahead of Sporting Kansas City by virtue of having achieved more wins in the league this season. Both teams are level on points with 40 on the board. Seattle’s good form has been in place since the start of July, and the club has probably two points in the last two months. Clint Dempsey took his league tally to 11 goals for the season with a late penalty against Minnesota United.

Seattle Sounders FC Team News

Seattle Sounders manager Brian Schmetzer does not have any injury worries coming into the game.
