Team News

Columbus
Vancouver
  • Dan Paladini has recovered from injury that ruled him out of games against San Jose, DC United, New York and Sporting Kansas City.
  • However, Hector Jimenez is struggling with a calf strain.
  • Mehdi Ballouchy and Darren Mattocks are Carl Robinson's only major injury concern for the game against the Columbus Crew at the weekend.
  • Sam Adekugbe and Ethen Sampson are ruled out for the game.

Prediction

  • Things are getting a bit desperate for the Columbus Crew. After a decent start, they're now without a win in their last five games. Federico Higuain can't carry the team on his own and without Dominic Oduro, the Crew lack an attacking outlet.
  • The Vancouver Whitecaps snapped a run of four games without a win by beating the San Jose Earthquakes in a thrilling encounter last week. Chris Wondolowski caused the Caps problems at the back, but Pedro Morales netted a brace to secure the points.
  • The Caps have been presented with an excellent opportunity to make it two successive wins.
