Last year’s playoff series with Seattle Sounders was a massive letdown for Vancouver Whitecaps supporters. The team’s performance over the two legs was simply not good enough, and the lack of attacking desire in the home leg in particular was a major disappointment.
The two teams meet at BC Place this weekend for the first time since that match, and for the second time this season. When the sides clashed in Seattle in July, the ‘Caps kickstarted an eight-match unbeaten streak for the Sounders. If they want to keep their playoff hopes alive, they need to end it on Saturday. This time they have to attack and they have to win. It already feels all or nothing.
Joe and Nick look ahead to the match in this week’s preview podcast? How will the ‘Caps replace the suspended Yordy Reyna? Can they stifle the Sounders midfield? And how are the Whitecaps playoff percentage chances akin to Donald Trump?! All that chat and more!
There’s a lot on the line and this week Joe has actually finally found a game that Nick does well at! Can you? Have a listen and find out!
