Vancouver Whitecaps vs Atlanta United Match Preview
Vancouver Whitecaps have already taken one sizeable scalp at home this season – and another could be added to the collection when reigning MLS champions Atlanta United visit this week.
The result that began to transform Whitecaps’ mediocre start to the campaign was a 1-0 victory at BC Place against Los Angeles FC, for whom that has been the only defeat in 12 games so far having established themselves as clear favourites for the MLS Cup.
The Canadian club have certainly built on that triumph and back-to-back wins against Colorado Rapids and Portland Timbers mean they are in good enough form to cause problems even for an Atlanta side now going superbly under manager Frank de Boer.
Atlanta looked anything but the title-holders in the Dutchman’s first few games in charge, but now they have found their stride with four straight wins all accompanied by clean sheets.
Three of those were at home, however, and the one outside of Georgia came against a Sporting Kansas City outfit who have lost their way badly and are leaking lots of goals.
Although deserved favourites, Atlanta face their longest MLS journey of the season here and may be worth opposing against a Vancouver side who are also on an upward curve.
