MLS Regular Season Week 17 - WFC Match 18

Toyota Stadium, Frisco, TX
TV: TSN1/3 - RADIO: TSN Radio 1040

WESTERN ROAD SWING: The 'Caps kick off the first of four straight on the road, visiting FC Dallas at Toyota Stadium for a midweek fixture. After losing their first seven visits to North Texas, the 'Caps have come out with strong results in their last last two - a 4-0 victory in July 2017, and a comeback 2-2 draw in May 2018.

RECENT FORM: Whitecaps FC are looking for the full three points as they come into Wednesday's match undefeated in five, including a 2-1 home win over FC Dallas on May 25. On the other hand, the Toros have gone undefeated in their three fixtures since their loss at BC Place, with wins versus Seattle and Toronto FC, and a road draw in between against San Jose.

RECORD NIGHT: Whitecaps FC were disappointed to not collect all three points against Colorado; however, head coach Marc Dos Santos would likely be pleased to see the identity and principles of play they are looking to establish as the team set single-match records for WFC in MLS with 640 successful passes, 915 touches throughout the 90 minutes. The nine shots on target, 17 chances created, and 69.4% possession also rank near the best ever for the 'Caps in MLS.

Seattle Sounders FC vs. Vancouver Whitecaps FC
MLS Regular Season Week 17 - WFC Match 19

CenturyLink Field, Seattle, WA

CASCADIA: The 'Caps play their first Cascadia road match of the season, after drawing against Sounders FC and winning versus the Timbers at home. 

FORMER SOUNDERS: Former Sounders FC players Fredy Montero and Andy Rose look to lead the 'Caps to a strong road result in Seattle. Montero left the Sounders as their all-time leading scorer in 2012, while Rose had over 100 appearances for Seattle before leaving for the UK following the 2015 season.

KOREAN CLASH: Fellow South Korean internationals Inbeom Hwang and Kim Kee Hee might meet once again. In the previous matchup, Hwang drew a penalty call on Kim in added time, only to be overturned by video review, as the match ended in a 0-0 tie. Prior to the June international break, Kim missed the two last matches for Seattle with left knee pain.
