MATCH PREVIEW
MAIN PREDICTION: HOME WIN
 
The Vancouver Whitecaps’ playoff chances were bolstered last Saturday night when they edged Real Salt Lake 3-2 at home with goals by Cristian Techera, Kendall Waston and Yordy Reyna. Vancouver is now unbeaten in the past four outings with three wins and a draw. They have lost just once in the past seven games with four wins and a pair of draws. With 41 points on the season, Vancouver now sits five points in front of the seventh placed San Jose Earthquakes. The team also improved its home record to seven wins, three draws and three defeats for 24 points.
Minnesota Utd is unbeaten in their past two contests after playing to a 1-1 home draw with the Philadelphia Union in the first ever meeting between the two teams. Both goals came in the first half with Minnesota's Ethan Finlay leveling the game in the 40th minute. United's previous game was a 2-1 upset over the Fire in Chicago for the expansion club's first MLS road win. Minnesota now has 26 points on the year and remains in 10th place in the West. The side has two wins, two draws and five defeats in its past nine contests with nine goals scored and 15 allowed. Minnesota’s away record currently stands at just one wins, two draws and eight losses.
The Whitecaps are on a roll right now and I expect them to keep going with a win over a poor away club in Minnesota.
 
SECOND PREDICTION: FIRST TEAM TO SCORE – VANCOUVER WHITECAPS
 
The Vancouver Whitecaps have conceded just one goal before the 37th minute in their last nine games while Minnesota Utd have shipped six before the 38th minute in the same length of time, so look for the Whitecaps to open the scoring. 
 
HEAD TO HEAD
These two teams played to a 2-2 draw in their first MLS meeting in June in Minnesota.
