VAN vs SPKC Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Vancouver Whitecaps FC host Sporting Kansas City in a huge MLS match at BC Place Wednesday night.
Vancouver Whitecaps FC:
The Hosts are sitting at 8th, two places and three-points down the last playoff spot in the Western Conference which is currently being occupied by Real Salt Lake.
With the regular season heading to its culmination in less than two weeks, any mistake here could carry huge ramifications for Vancouver who can still qualify for the post-season, provided they win this game. All three points in this match would take them to 46 points, level on with Salt Lake. But the inferior goal-difference means Whitecaps may have to wait for another round of matches to grab the desired spot.
However, the hosts can only blame themselves for their current position in the table. They won just five times in the last 11 games, while a scrappy win in the last match against Toronto was their first in the last 4 MLS games.
Sporting Kansas City:
Meanwhile, Sporting Kansas City have their own ambitions to achieve this season. The Kansas City are 3rd in West, just 4 points adrift of leaders FC Dallas who lost their last game against DC United. So this is their game in hand and they must take full advantage of Dallas’ uncanny slip-up to have any chance of winning the Conference Championship.
With just two wins in the last six games and none in the past three, the visitors are trailing off at the wrong time of the season. However, Sporting are not playing badly in recent games. In fact, they are one of the most attacking teams in MLS and their 54 shots taken in the last two MLS games show they can turn their recent bad phase around.

VAN vs SPKC Dream11 TEAM NEWS: Injuries and Suspensions
Vancouver Whitecaps FC vs Sporting Kansas City Team News:
Vancouver Whitecaps FC: Vancouver showed in the last game against Toronto that they can scrap past results when needed. They had the less ball, took fewer shots and had just three corners in the last game, and yet managed to win the game.
All thanks to Kei Kamara who popped up with a decisive strike in the 78th minute. He is their main man and will once again lead the attack for the hosts in this match.
The home side are set to be without some key players in this match. Alphonso Davies, Doneil Henry, Russell Teibert, Kendall Waston, Aly Ghazal, and Yordy Reyna all are on International duties with their respective countries and will be missing this MLS match.
Meanwhile, defender Aaron Maund is carrying a flexor strain in his right knee and could miss this match.
Sporting Kansas City: The visitors managed to earn a precious point in the last game when Scottish forward Johnny Russell scored a phenomenal goal in the 83rd minute. This was his 9th strike this season. He was on international duty with Scotland but is expected to be back in time for the game. However, we haven’t included him in our VAN vs SPKC Dream11 team, just because of the jet lag.
Midfielder Felipe Gutierrez and striker Krisztian Nemeth are on international duty and are expected to miss this match, while Jimmy Medranda (knee surgery), and Cristian Lobato (quad injury) have been ruled out.
