Vancouver vs Houston – Preview, and Prediction

Vancouver vs Houston -In order to defeat the Vancouver Whitecaps for the first time ever on the road in Major League Soccer, the Houston Dynamo travel to BC Place Stadium.

Orange Crush lost 6-0 to Philadelphia Union last weekend, extending their losing streak to two games. Vancouver is four points off of the final Western Conference playoff berth and has lost five MLS games.

The Washington Capitals went unbeaten in four straight games in all categories entering July, including a 1-0 victory over the formidable Los Angeles FC, and seemed ready to move beyond the playoff line.

That’s not what Vanni Sartini would have anticipated, though, as his team blew a 1-0 lead against Minnesota United at home on July 9 and lost 3-1. Since then, they haven’t been able to regain their footing.

Only one goal has been scored in four straight games across all competitions, but they did manage to come back and tie 1-1 with Nashville SC on the road in their previous match courtesy to an equaliser in the 87th minute.

You can see that the Caps have recently struggled to stop rival attackers at home if you take away their victory at the Canadian Championship late last month.

Vancouver vs Houston – Betting Analysis

Houston, who currently sits 11th in the Western Conference, six points outside of a playoff place, has 11 games left to play, and it’s sink or swim time for them.

Orange Crush was the only team in 2021 to not win a regular-season road game. This year, they have three road wins but eight defeats with 22 goals allowed.

Houston has not won a league game in Canada since defeating Toronto 3-1 in 2019. They have scored one goal or fewer in each of their eight road games this season.

Orange Crush have already increased their win count from last season by one (seven), and they are only five points away from matching their entire total from 2021.

Given last weekend’s performance, they may not be a better club than last year. This team is unbeatable when they score multiple goals in 90 minutes, winning six of seven matches this year and drawing 2-2 versus Dallas.
