Let us dive into Match Preview and Thursday’s Top Team News:
Vancouver Whitecaps and Minnesota United are separated in the Western Conference by one point and have comparable team forms.
We are betting on the Whitecaps because they have had the conference’s best form over the past five games. In addition, the Canadian side is at home and has the advantage over Minnesota United.
The only injured players are four Whitecaps men, but winning this Thursday shouldn’t be an issue for them.
Team news: Vancouver Whitecaps manager Vanni Sartini will be without Thomas Hasal (finger injury) and Déiber Caicedo (knee injury) today.
Cody Cropper, Javain Brown, Ranko Veselinovic, Tristan Blackmon, Marcus Godinho, Andres Cubas, Russell Teibert, Ryan Raposo, Brian White, Lucas Cavallini, and Ryan Gauld should start the first half in a 3-4-2-1 formation, in our opinion.
Team news: Minnesota United team
Adrian Heath, the manager of Minnesota United, currently faces fewer team alternatives. No consideration can be given to Hassani Dotson (ruptured cruciate ligament), Patrick Weah (knee injury), or Romain Métanire (hamstring injury).
We predict that Dayne St. Clair, DJ Taylor, Michael Boxall, Bakaye Dibassy, Kemar Lawrence, Wil Trapp, Bongokuhle Hlongwane, Robin Lod, Emanuel Reynoso, Franco Fragapane, and Luis Amarilla will all be used by the Loons in a 4-2-3-1 system.
In our opinion, scoring here could be challenging for both Vancouver Whitecaps and Minnesota United.
It seems to be shaping up to be a draw at this point. Therefore, we believe that this game will end in a 0-0 draw.
Opposing parties: When comparing their previous head-to-head matches dating back to July 29, 2018, neither club has emerged victorious overall, with the Vancouver Whitecaps winning two of those games, Minnesota United winning two, and two games ending in a draw.
They combined to score 19 goals during this time, with 10 goals coming from the Caps and 9 from the Loons.
The final league encounter between these clubs occurred on MLS Match Day 43 on October 28, 2021, with a final score of Vancouver Whitecaps 2-1 Minnesota United.
Vancouver Whitecaps had 42% of the day’s possession and 2 of their 9 attempts on goal were on target. Brian White (63′) was their lone scorer.
Nima Saghafi served as the referee.
Last Five Games- Vancouver Whitecaps
Vancouver has had trouble stringing victories together, but they are performing well in the MLS.
The Whitecaps have gone undefeated in three games and have won four of their previous six league contests, drawing just once.
This run of success began in late May when they defeated Real Salt Lake 2-1 at home after winning 1-0 away at Sporting KC.
They suffered a 4-0 beating at Seattle, which took them falling back to Earth, but they quickly recovered with a 2-0 victory against Dallas.
Following that, Vancouver and New England played to a scoreless tie at home before Vancouver defeated Los Angeles FC 1-0 to return to winning ways.
Last Five Games- Minnesota United FC
Minnesota is traveling to Canada after a few encouraging victories over the previous ten days.
United had a miserable month of May after losing 2-1 to Union Omaha at home in the US Open Cup, which started a four-game losing streak.
Following that cup upset, they suffered a 1-0 home loss to New York City FC before losing back-to-back matches on the road.
Minnesota’s losing streak now stands at four games after losses of 2-1 at New England and 2-1 at Inter Miami.
They managed to stop the bleeding with an unexpected 3-2 victory at the Los Angeles Galaxy, and United followed it up on Monday with another 3-2 triumph over Real Salt Lake.
