The trip to Vancouver, B.C. is short. But due to the midweek nature it may have muted road support. The Seattle Sounders and Vancouver Whitecaps have split their MLS series 7-7-4 +0 with each team holding a single-win edge at home. Wednesday’s 7 PM game is on JOEtv in the Seattle area and on TSN 1/3/4/5 (poor 2) in Canada.
Center referee for the match will be Ricardo Salazar. Jose Carlos Rivero is manning replay.
The Whitecaps are the last team above the red line with a 10-9-4 +1 record. Vancouver is 6-3-2 +5 at home.
Sounders enter the week first in the West with an 11-7-7 +7 record. They are 3-6-4 -3 on the road. Only three teams are ahead of them in the Supporters’ Shield race.
The Portland Timbers lead the Cascadia Cup standings with 7 points in four played. Seattle Sounders have 4 points in three matches. Vancouver only has 3 points in three games. Seattle can take the trophy if they sweep their rivals this week.
