Game Preview

The Vancouver Whitecaps are 0-1-2 in their last three games, even though they didn’t play against too tough opponents. This goes especially for their most recent game, in which they drew 2-2 with the Colorado Rapids, the worst team in the Western Conference.

To be fair to them, all three of those games were on the road. This weekend, however, the Whitecaps are coming back to Vancouver. BC Place is where they’ll welcome DC United on September 30 in a game that could prove crucial for these teams’ playoff future.

The boys from Washington are below the playoff zone now, after going 0-1-3 in their last four games. There are just three matches left for this team to play in the remainder of the regular season, meaning that if they lose on Saturday, their playoff dreams may end. The main reason for this is that DC United is in the Eastern Conference, where Lionel Messi’s Herons have set their eyes on the No. 9 position.

Vancouver Whitecaps vs. DC United Prediction

Losing this game could mean a disaster for DC United, which is why the Washington boys are going to go all-in on Saturday. When it comes to the Whitecaps, a win would be great for the Canadians, but even a draw would suit them fine.
