Seattle Sounders vs Vancouver Whitecaps
Major League Soccer
Date: Saturday 21st July 2018
Kick off at 21:00 UK/ 22:00 CET
Venue: CenturyLink Field (Seattle).

Seattle Sounders are 9 points from a play-off place in the Western conference and are in 10th place and this has clearly not been a good campaign for the team. However they will be hoping to pick up all 3 points in what people call a local derby even if Vancouver are in a different country. The reason is that just 200km separates the two cities.

Seattle’s recent form is encouraging and they have been picking up the points. A win over Colorado Rapids followed two draws most noticeably getting a point against Atlanta United was impressive and the team has gone the last 3 games undefeated.

Vancouver are in 8th place on 26 points and are chasing down a play-off place but are currently two points shy of that target. Form is poor with 3 losses from the last 4 games and away from home they have lost back to back matches. Currently they lose 60% of their games on the road.

Seattle Sounders vs Vancouver Whitecaps: Prediction

Seattle seem to be going in the right direction and when we look at Vancouver’s recent form and that the home team will be up for this game we will back the home team to get all three points. Seattle have a good recent history against Vancouver when playing at home and will make life difficult for the visitors, so maximum stakes for the home side to win.
