Possible INs and OUTs of this game:

  • Manager Marc Dos Santos may go with the same playing 11 which lost 1-3 at home to New York FC.
  • New arrival Tosaint Ricketts should continue to lead the lines despite not scoring a goal for his new team since joining on August 09. One of the main reasons is also the lack of options at Dos Santos' disposal.
  • Young forward Theo Bair is an option though, however, the 20-year-old is likely to feature from the bench.

Vancouver Whitecaps Probable XI:

Macmath (GK), Adnan, Henry, Rose, Nerwinski, Teibert, Hwang, Erice, Montero, Reyna, Ricketts
