Vancouver Whitecaps FC vs Sporting Kansas City Prediction Today
With six wins they showed strong both home and away. At home, they were able to draw five additional draws, while away only two were possible. Outside, the Whitecaps scored eight and home defeats four. Overall, they were able to achieve 49 counters, with the home record being better with new goals than the foreigners. The Whitecaps, however, suffered 60 goals in 31 games. All in all, these are numbers that do not exactly speak for a strong team performance. That could have been due to the team-internal riots in matters of coaching etc. Since 25th September, they have been coached by Craig Dalrymple, who was previously Technical Director of the Whitecaps. Under him they have so far played two games. They lost 3-0 to Los Angeles and beat Toronto 2-1. The fact that Vancouver has separated from Carl Robinson, may have left larger wounds, as wanted, because in addition co-coach Martyn Pert and goalkeeping coach Stewart Kerr retired. If the season of whitecaps continues with the playoffs, that should be a big surprise. The win against Canadian Champion and MLS Cup Champion Toronto could have been the first step. They have proven on several occasions that it is not impossible to win against Sporting, and Sporting has only had two more wins this season than Vancouver and has a slight away weakness. But it should not be forgotten that the Whitecaps lost 6-0 in the first leg at Sporting Kansas. However, then still under the previous coach. The 12 national team players in the Whitecaps squad probably do not help either. With Kei Kamara, they have a center-forward who scored 14 times in 26 games and scored four assists. However, Alphonso Davies, who will move to Bayern Munich in January 2019, will stand out. He was named the best U22 Major League Soccer player. The 17-year-old has completed 28 games and scored six goals. Much to the delight of Craig is likely that no player is injured, only Efrain Juarez, Felipe Martins, Cristian Techera and Jose Aja are threatened by a lock.
