Vancouver Whitecaps vs DC United Prediction & Match Preview

Vancouver Whitecaps vs DC United
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 18 August 2019
Kick-off at 03:00 UK/ 04:00 CET
Venue: BC Place (Vancouver, BC).

Whitecaps have finally ended their two-and-a-half months run without a win against Cincinnati (2-1). Their enthusiasm was short lived, though, as they had to travel to Portland (1-3). Vancouver are the worst team in the Western Conference with W/D/L record of 5-9-12. At home, they have 3 wins, 4 draws and 5 losses.

DC United bounced back from an embarrassing 1-5 defeat to Union and collected three points vs Los Angeles Galaxy (2-1) at their Audi Field. Truth be told, they were lucky to get that win, Galaxy dominated the game, but Black-and-Red were clinical in front of goal. They’re siting 3rd in the Eastern Conference, with six points ahead of list-of-teams hoping for a post season.

Vancouver Whitecaps vs DC United: Head to Head

They’ve met six times in the past and DC is leading the way with four wins.

Whitecaps’ only win so far against DC happened in 2013, on the road, and that was their very first meeting.

DC United is on a 4-game winning streak against the Canadian team.

There is no clear over/under pattern to report or follow.

Vancouver Whitecaps vs DC United: Prediction

Whitecaps are having a horrible campaign. They even managed to lose two-legged affair against Cavarly in the Canadian Championship. That’s how bad it is. I’m inclined to believe that a late win against Cincinnati was just a fluke and I don’t see them winning this game.

DC United’s away record of 4 wins, 4 draws and 4 losses with 12:12 goal difference doesn’t inspire confidence, so I’ll skip clear away win and pick them on DNB market. Ben Olsen’s men should be closer to victory on Sunday and let’s hope they will deliver.

No alternative bets, though – there are better games to bet on this weekend in the MLS.
