Vancouver Whitecaps vs Colorado Rapids
USA- Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 23rd June 2019
Kick off at 03:00 UK / 04:00 CET
Venue: BC Place (Vancouver).
The visitors, Colorado Rapids, have risen from the ashes after kicking off their campaign to one of the possible worst starts. The squad are currently without a loss in their last five matches in the league and will be hoping to extend that exact same run of form when they travel to the BC Place on Sunday to take on the home side Vancouver Whitecaps.
The latter have not managed to walk away with more than a point in three out of their last four matches. They are also the lowest scoring side in the Western Conference and will need to turn things around if they are to climb up a few spots in the table. Their last home match against Toronto FC ended in a 1-1 draw as well, with the latter equalized in the dying minutes of the game.
The visitors are trailing behind the home side by three points in the league, so a win will put them level on points with the latter who are currently ninth in the league.

Vancouver Whitecaps vs Colorado Rapids Prediction
Despite Conor Casey’s side currently displaying a much better run of form than the hosts, the game on Sunday is likely to go in favor of the latter.
Marc Dos Santos’s men will be looking to cash in on home advantage to secure all three points. At home, they have lost just one out of their last five matches. The squad will certainly be the more optimistic of the two sides, although the match is certainly not going to be a walk in the park for them.
Although it is true that the away side have been dismal on the road with three losses in their last five matches, they have been rallying much better in their last two fixtures.
No team in the Western conference have conceded more goals than the visitors. So, we can definitely expect the home side to take an early lead and finally the win at the end of the ninety minutes. The match is also bound to produce more than 2.5 goals considering that both the teams have been consistent in finding the back of the net in their last two games.
