Date: Monday, 2 July 2018
Kick-Off: 00:00 UK
Venue: BC Place (Vancouver).

Vancouver Whitecaps and Colorado Rapids are going to close this round of Major League Soccer with a midnight clash.

Home side is fighting for the place in the playoffs and they are two points ahead of Houston Dynamo. Their six-match unbeatable streak was broken last weekend with a defeat away to Philadelphia Union.

Cristian Techera and the lads have been very efficient this season, however their bad defending prevented them of winning more points.

Colorado rapids are the second worst team in the Western Conference as they managed to celebrate just three times this season.

Anthony Hudson’s side is very inefficient as they managed to produce just 19 goals in 15 matches. However, they managed to snatch four points in the last two matches and moved away from the bottom spot.

The visitors are playing awful at away grounds as they picked up just a point when playing away from home.

Vancouver Whitecaps vs Colorado Rapids: Head-to-head

The hosts have booked two straight victories against their rivals and they haven’t been defeated five times in a row in their head to head clashes.

When these two sides are facing each other, the crowd is able to see goals in both nets very often.

Vancouver Whitecaps vs Colorado Rapids: Prediction

As the visitors are playing terrible at away pitches, Vancouver Whitecaps are strong favourites in this one and they should be able to book new three points.

A victory in this one would be very valuable for the hosts in their playoffs battle.

Home side is involved in high scoring matches this season and since the visitors are bad in the back, we should be able to see at least three goals in this one. This was the case in their last three clashes.
