Vancouver Whitecaps vs NE Revolution Prediction

The last time the Vancouver Whitecaps took on the New England Revolution in the league was back in 2019.

The two squads have evolved since then, but the result is very likely to remain the same. New England had defeated the Whitecaps by 4-0 by putting on one of the most one-sided performances in MLS history.

Gustavo Bou, Diego Fagúndez, Carles Gil, and Teal Bunbury got on the scoresheet as the home side registered a comfortable win.

While the scoreline clearly shows the match was one-sided, the stats show the extent of the dominating performance. New England took 33 shots at goal, while their opponents managed just six. Of those shots, the home side had 12 on target, while the away side managed none.

Whitecaps have recent history on their side

New England finished that season in 14th spot with 11 wins from their 34 matches. They collected 45 points and finished 3 points behind 12th placed New York Red Bulls and 13th placed FC Dallas.

On the other hand, Vancouver Whitecaps had one of the worst seasons as they finished 2nd from the bottom. They had managed just 8 wins in their 34 matches, with 16 defeats. The last time these two sides clashed was in a club-friendly in 2020, and the Whitecaps managed to get the win. Ali Adnan and Lucas Cavallini scored the goals in the second half to seal a 2-0 win for the Canadian side.

Vancouver Whitecaps Are Getting Into The Groove At Last

Vancouver Whitecaps made a poor start to the season but are slowly getting back to their best. The Canadian side had lost six of their opening eight matches, but are now on the road to recovery.  They lost 4-0 to Columbus Crew on the opening weekend and then drew 0-0 with New York City FC. That was followed by back-to-back losses to Houston Dynamo and Los Angeles FC.

They finally got their first win of the season when they faced Sporting Kansas City. Ryan Raposo scored the lone goal of the game, and then the Whitecaps defended well to collect their first three points of the season.

The win was just a spark and nothing more as they lost three matches in a row. Portland Timbers, CF Montreal, and Austin FC before the Whitecaps ended the losing streak with a win over Toronto FC. The last seven matches have seen Whitecaps turn things around. They have picked up four wins in those matches and lost just twice.

Change in fortunes

Following the win over Toronto, Whitecaps hosted San Jose Earthquakes and drew 3-3 with them. They needed a 90th-minute goal from Erik Godoy to seal the win after Lucas Cavallini had given them the lead early in the second half.

Lucas Cavallini was the hero in the next game as he scored a crucial penalty in the injury time against FC Dallas. Paul Arriola handed the Texas side a lead in the first half, but Brian White equalized in the second half for Whitecaps. Cavallini’s penalty in injury time was the only other goal of the game, and they ended up winning 2-1.

Once again, they could not carry the momentum into the next game and lost 2-1 to Charlotte FC. Tosaint Ricketts gave them the lead in the 2nd minute of the match, but Andre Shinyashiki and Daniel Rios scored for the newcomers to hand them the win.

A winning habit

Lucas Cavallini’s fine form continued in the next match as his goal in the first half was enough to beat Sporting Kansas City. Once again, he scored from the spot, and it turned out to be the winner. Winning late became a habit for the WHitecaps, and this time it was Ryan Gauld who scored the winner. He converted from the spot in the 93rd minute to hand the Canadian side a 2-1 win over Real Salt Lake.

Seattle Sounders handed Whitecaps a reality check by thrashing them 4-0 in the next game week. However, the Vancouver side bounced back well and defeated FC Dallas 2-0 last week.

Injuries and suspensions

Thomas Hasal and Cristián Gutiérrez are ruled out.

New England Revolution Are On A Good Run And Need To Keep It Going

After a short pre-season with just two matches, New England were ready to start the season with a bang. They drew their first match of the season with Portland Timbers but managed to beat FC Dallas in the second game week.

Carles Gil got the lone goal of the game from the spot, and that was enough for them to get the three points.

Their participation in the CONCACAF Champions League proved to be a distraction as they went on to lose their next four matches in the league. Real Salt Lake, Charlotte FC, New York Red Bulls, and Inter Miami defeated them before New England finally ended the winless run.

Win one, lose one

They defeated Charlotte FC in the reverse fixture and got their revenge on the newcomers. Adam Buksa and Matt Polster scored for the home side as they won 2-1 and managed to hold on to their lead despite a late comeback attempt from the away side. However, the win did not result in their fortunes turning around, and they lost once again. DC United defeated them 3-2 in the Capital despite the away side dominating the ball.

They bounced back from the loss with a 2-0 win over Inter Miami, another side they got their revenge on. Damian Rivera and Adam Buksa scored the goals in the 2-0 win. However, they once again slipped up after a win and drew 2-2 to Columbus Crew and Atalanta United.

Turning it around

In the last five matches, New England have managed to pull themselves together. They have gone unbeaten and managed to get three wins as well. They defeated FC Cincinnati 3-2, before drawing against Philadelphia Union.

It was the same story once again as they defeated Sporting Kansas City and they drew to Orlando City. The draw was once again followed by a win, this time over Minnesota United. Dylan Borrero and Gustavo Bou scored the goals as they came back from 1-0 down in the first half to win.  However, during this unbeaten run in the league, they did get knocked out of the US Open Cup. New York City FC defeated them 1-0 in the previous round to end their chances of picking up the silverware.

Injuries and suspensions

Matt Turner is on his way to Arsenal this week and his stint with New England Revolution is now over.
