Vancouver Whitecaps vs. Seattle Sounders Prediction and Picks
When: Sunday, November 7, 7 pm ET
Where: BC Place, Vancouver, CA
The Cascadia Cup rivalry between Portland and Seattle might be the fiercest in the Pacific North West. However, there is still a sharp sense of competition between the Vancouver Whitecaps and the Seattle Sounders, with the two sides set to take on each other in Major League Soccer this weekend.
Seattle has the Western Conference title in their sights, while Vancouver is attempting to build some momentum and climb as high in the table as possible ahead of the play-offs. Here are some tips and information ahead of the MLS fixture between the Whitecaps and the Sounders on Sunday, November 7.
Vancouver Whitecaps vs. Seattle Sounders Prediction
Vancouver comes into this match on the back of a five-match unbeaten run. This good run of form has pushed the Whitecaps up into the play-off places in the Western Conference with the signing of Scottish playmaker Ryan Gauld two months ago, a watershed in their season. He has made a big difference with his creativity.
Vanni Sartini’s side has won seven of their last eight home matches in MLS, making BC Place something of a fortress for Vancouver. On top of this, the Whitecaps have been winning at both half time and full time of their last four matches in front of their supporters, illustrating their dominance at home.
However, the Seattle Sounders are the strongest side in the Western Conference at the moment, with Brian Schmetzer’s side sitting at the top of the standings. However, their advantage over Sporting KC in second place stands at just one point, so they can’t afford to let anything slip in their hunt for the Western Conference title.
Seattle is without a win in their last five league matches and is stumbling towards the finish line, and so a Cascadia Cup victory at BC Place would give them a significant boost. It would be enough for them to secure the title in the West on the final day of the regular season and send them into the play-offs in good form.
