Houston Dynamo have never won in ten visits to Vancouver.
Lucas Cavallini has scored seven goals this season, one of which came in Houston back in March.
Given that both these clubs are currently below the play-off line, three points are very much needed for both.
Vancouver Whitecaps managed to draw 1-1 with Nashville last weekend courtesy of Javain Brown’s late equaliser in Tennessee.
This is the sixth time, four equalisers and two winners, the Whitecaps have scored an outcome-changing goal in the 85th minute or later in 2022.
The Caps did win the Canadian Championship last month, but are now winless in five MLS matches.
So, their form is going to need to improve of Vanni Sartini is to lead Vancouver into the post-season for the first time since 2017.
Houston Dynamo are one place and two points below their hosts.
Paulo Nagamura’s side come into this one having been demolished 6-0 at Philadelphia in their most recent outing.
This means El Naranja have only won one of their last seven with their play-off hopes fading fast.
Will BC Place witness a home win?
