Charlotte vs Vancouver Whitecaps
USA – MLS
Date: Sunday, 22 May 2022
Kick-off at 22:00 UK / 23:00 CET
Venue: Bank of America Stadium.
Vancouver Whitecaps will be hoping to carry their just found momentum on Sunday evening when they travel to Charlotte in what should be an exciting schedule at Bank of America Stadium.
Charlotte FC is in the Eastern Conference at the 9th spot on the standing with 13 points from 12 games. They won 4 times in the league while drew once and lost on 7 other occasions. They have been not at all consistent recently with the side winning, drawing and losing games in an uneven manner.
The hosts will be hoping for a better result after a 0-2 MLS loss in their previous game against Montreal Impact. Over their past 6 fixtures, Miguel Angel Ramirez’s men have netted a combined total of 9 times which gives them an average number of goals per match equal to 1.5.
On the other hand, Vancouver Whitecaps is at the at the rock bottom of Western Conference closing the 14th position on the table with a mere 11 points. Of the 11 matches played, they won only thrice while drew on 2 and lost on 6 other occasions. The Caps has a poor start to the campaign but have fairly been improved as of late.
Vancouver Whitecaps will come into the match following on from a 2-1 league win over FC Dallas in their most recent match. They are currently on a 3-game unbeaten run in the league but their defensive errors caused them to concede 21 goals so far.
These two sides have never met in any of the competitions so far and this will be their first ever encounter.
Charlotte vs Vancouver Whitecaps Prediction
Things have not been going that well in front of goal for Charlotte recently, with the side failing to score in 3 of the last 5 games. They snapped their 4-game winning streak at home in the previous schedule to Montreal. However, they stand third in the league in terms of the home performance.
Meanwhile, Vancouver Whitecaps has put together a good run of form and has now gone 4 games without defeat across various competitions. In terms of their away performance, they are miles below as they have lost all of their 5 games played on road this season.
Since the visitors are awful on-road while the hosts play better at home, we therefore predict a win for the home side this Sunday.
