Vancouver Whitecaps vs Philadelphia Union Prediction & Match Preview

Vancouver Whitecaps vs Philadelphia Union
Major League Soccer
Date: Saturday, 27 April 2019
Kick-Off 22:00 UK / 23:00 CET
Venue: BC Place Stadium (Vancouver).

Vancouver Whitecaps got off to a dreadful start to the new season. They won just one and lost five of eight games so far. The team made a host of changes in between two campaigns and the new head coach Marc Dos Santos will obviously need some time to bed in all new arrivals.

The Canadian outfit is particularly struggling to find the right attacking form at the start of the season. They found the back of the net just six times in eight league affairs which is by far competition’s weakest record at this stage.

This will be the music to the ears of Philadelphia Union who are thus looking ahead of a nice opportunity to back up a solid kick off to their campaign. Zolos sit fourth in the Eastern Conference standings and will come into this high on confidence after winning three of past four league fixtures.

Vancouver Whitecaps vs Philadelphia Union: Head-to-head

Outfits have three wins, draws and defeats apiece coming into the landmark 10th head to head encounter.

Philadelphia celebrated a demolishing 4-0 victory when they last played Whitecaps back in June last year.

Vancouver failed to find the back of the net in any of past two meetings with Zolos.

Vancouver Whitecaps vs Philadelphia Union: Prediction

The Caps scored only one goal in past three home fixtures in Major League Soccer. Phila, on the other side, kept their net untouched in three of last five league ties. They kept clean sheets in last two head to head matches against Whitecaps as well. The value thus has to be with the visitors to keep a clean sheet at the odds of 3.75 here.

Under 2-5 goals FT looks like another decent betting option at 2.10, while you will hardly make a mistake backing in-form Philadelphia Union not to lose at the odds of 1.55. Braver punters can obviously go for the clear away win at 2.62.

Vancouver Whitecaps vs Philadelphia Union: Bet Tips

  • Draw or Away Win @ 1.55 (11/20)
  • Philadelphia Union to keep a clean sheet @ 3.75 (11/4).
