Colin's Keys

Tune in to AM730 radio on matchdays for a live broadcast of the match, with a pre-match show and post-match show.

Wednesday's pre-match show kicks off at 4 p.m. PT at whitecapsfc.com/am730.

Here are Colin’s keys as the 'Caps face their second ever match against FC Cincinnati.

Match their intensity

Cincinnati are playing at home, and they will want to compete.

The energy from their fans is always high at their stadium.

The 'Caps must match their intensity.

Attack, attack, attack

Defensively, Cincinnati are suspect.

They've conceded 16 goals in nine home games. That 1.78 per home game is the third most in the league.

Their back three try to win every ball. The 'Caps need to to keep getting the ball into the box.

Positive reaction

Friday's home loss to Minnesota United FC was disappointing.

This will be a good test of character with a short turnaround on the road.

They need a positive reaction.
