Vancouver will be eager to end a poor run of five league games without a win (D3, L2). The bulk of those matches have been goalfests with both teams scoring in four, and three producing over 3.5 goals.
Matches seem to come alive in the second half for the Whitecaps, with 66.67% of the goals across their previous five league matches arriving after the break. It’s a theme that continues when it comes to conceding goals at home too – 63.64% of the league goals they’ve conceded here this term came after half-time.
Although neighbours in the league table, Sporting Kansas City can boast a much better record of just two defeats in their last six league matches (W2, D2, L2). Peter Vermes’ side have netted in five of their previous six games, but their leaking defence continues to let them down. They have conceded an average of 1.79 goals per league game this season and kept just three clean sheets.
Across the previous five H2Hs, Kansas have an even record against Vancouver (W2, D1, L2). Strikingly, the last two meetings between these sides saw three stoppage-time goals.
Players to watch: Vancouver forward Yordy Reyna can boast a pretty impressive record of three goals in his previous four league matches – two of which came in the second half.
Krisztián Németh enjoyed a game of mixed emotions when these sides last met in May. He scored a goal in the first half, but was then sent-off in the second.
Stat attack: Vancouver have scored 70% of their home league goals during the first half.
There has been an average of 5.75 cards bestowed per game across Kansas’ previous four league matches.
There has been a red card shown in each of the previous two H2Hs.
