We're barely multi month from the finish of the MLS general season, and the Whitecaps are wavering on the precarious edge of disposal. After a severe 2-1 home misfortune to Seattle the 'Tops are currently four brings up of a playoff spot, and have just six matches left to make up that hole. The 'Tops will probably need to win no less than four of those amusements on the off chance that they are to sneak into the postseason; an entirely difficult request.
As worn out as it may be, they can just take it one amusement at any given moment however, and next up is a home match against FC Dallas, who as of now hold second place in the West. The 'Tops can't bear to drop any more focuses at home, so anything not as much as a win would be a cursing blow.
One of the greatest factors in the misfortune to Seattle a week ago was the nonappearance of Yordy Reyna. He was in a brilliant kept running of frame before his suspension, and in spite of how hard Nicolas Mezquida normally plays, he is essentially no place close as successful as Reyna when the Peruvian is playing like he has been. Mezquida's first half miss from point-clear range blew the 'Tops shot of taking a lead, and the diversion all in all felt like it would have been altogether different if Reyna was on the field.
Gratefully, he will be back in the line-up on Sunday, and Carl Robinson could ring up an entire host of changes on the off chance that he so picks. Brett Levis is another undeniable possibility to be supplanted, as his pinpoint through-ball to Raúl Ruídiaz made him one of the two simple substitutes for the misfortune – the other being Mezquida.
In the midfield, Felipe would appear to be a conspicuous decision to opening in, instead of Russell Teibert or Aly Ghazal, yet he was again an unused substitute against Seattle. Rather, it was Jordon Mutch who went ahead for Ghazal in the second half, and that may be a change we see again on Sunday. Mutch has shockingly been not able get a tolerable keep running of recreations because of consistent wounds, yet Robinson isn't unwilling to tossing players into the lineup late in the season (see Igiebor, Nosa).
In advance, it's difficult to perceive any progressions happening other than bringing Reyna back in for Mezquida. It is extremely unlikely Robinson would seat Alphonso Davies, and Cristian Techera has not been sufficiently awful to warrant being supplanted by the unsatisfying Brek Shea. In like manner, Kei Kamara will keep his place up top, with his shot that hit the post another merciless imagine a scenario in which minute from the Sounders coordinate.
Taking a gander at the guests, the Whitecaps may get Dallas at the perfect time. The Texan group has hit somewhat of a swoon since the start of August, a 2-3-2 extend dropping them of the best spot in the West. So, they are as yet an extremely solid group.
Maxi Urruti has been the way to their offense of late, with one objective and three aids his last three diversions, knocking him up to seven and seven for the season. Dallas may miss their driving scorer, in any case, as Roland Lamah has been out of activity since mid-August with muscle damage, and is recorded as "flawed" during the current end of the week.
The Whitecaps are currently at the phase where they'll require some fortunes with respect to other groups' outcomes, however that won't mean anything in the event that they can't win themselves. The circumstance that played out a weekend ago. A second in a row home misfortune would be calamitous, so it's three focuses or bust for the 'Tops this end of the week.
