On the back of three straight wins, the Seattle Sounders have the chance to stretch their advantage at the top of the Western Conference with another victory over their Cascadia Cup rivals. However, the Vancouver Whitecaps will arrive at Lumen Field in good form.

This has the potential to be the most compelling fixture in Major League Soccer this weekend. The Sounders might already be casting an eye towards the playoffs, but the Caps still need to pull themselves up into the top seven places. Here is some information and tips ahead of Sunday’s fixture.

Seattle Sounders vs. Vancouver Whitecaps Prediction

On the face of things, the Sounders will be strong favorites to claim victory over the Whitecaps on Saturday evening, with Brian Schmetzer’s team building real momentum ahead of the playoffs with three straight victories in their last three games. They will be targeting a third win on the bounce in front of their supporters.

Seattle is unbeaten in 12 of their last 13 matches against the Vancouver Whitecaps in all competitions. What’s more, the Sounders have been winning at both half-time and full time of their previous three league matches. They have also found the back of the net eight times in those three league matches, conceding just twice in the process.

Not so long ago, the Vancouver Whitecaps’ season looked to be meandering towards an underwhelming conclusion. However, the summer capture of Scottish playmaker Ryan Gauld has changed the mood around the club, with the Caps now firmly in the hunt for a playoff spot - they trail seventh-place Minnesota United by just one point.

The Whitecaps have drawn seven of their last eight away games in MLS. They have also kept a clean sheet in each of their previous three league outings, although keeping Seattle at arm’s length will be more challenging than keeping out FC Dallas, the Houston Dynamo, and the San Jose Earthquakes, as the Caps have done recently.
