Seattle Sounders will welcome Vancouver Whitecaps to Lumen Field for a matchday 0 fixture in USA MLS. The last meeting on 7th November 2021 ended in a 1-1 draw. Both sides have met thirty-two times in the most recent seasons. Seattle Sounders has won 16 matches, and Vancouver Whitecaps triumphed in 7. Recent outings average 2.69 goals, while both teams score 50% of the time.
Seattle Sounders’s last game in the USA MLS against Charlotte at home ended in a 2-1 win. Rave Green had more possession of the ball and took advantage of it. Seattle Sounders played much better in the first half and scored in the 72nd and 80th minute.
Vancouver Whitecaps’s recent game against Real Salt Lake ended in a home 2-1 win. Although Caps didn’t match their opponent’s intensity and quality while on possession, it was still enough. Vancouver Whitecaps had good chances in both halves and scored in the 31st and 90+3 minute.
Since the start of the season, Seattle Sounders is more dominant at home. They have three wins out of 5 games on home soil. Although Seattle Sounders is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 0% home clean sheets.
Vancouver Whitecaps has picked up 13 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Vancouver Whitecaps wins 0.43 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Vancouver Whitecaps kept a clean sheet in just 14% of their visits.
It is not a surprise that the hosts stand out as a favourite to win this one. Recently they enjoy playing at home, having won two consecutive matches. Seattle Sounders is currently unbeaten at home in two games. Since the start of the season, they have just two home defeats.
Caps got the three points in their previous away games but are still off their best. Their away record does not convince me that they have what it takes to avoid defeat on Wednesday.
I am confident that the hosts will prove their worth and triumph with another home victory. Seattle Sounders wins on average 1.80 points per home game, compared to 0.43 points per away game for Vancouver Whitecaps. My prediction is Seattle Sounders to win.
Both teams struggle in defence and concede on regular occasions. Seattle Sounders failed to keep a clean sheet in 0% of home games, while Vancouver Whitecaps conceded in 14% of away games. On average, both teams score in 59% of Seattle Sounders’s home and Vancouver Whitecaps’s away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: Yes.
