Colin Miller's Keys to the Match

Tune in on matchdays for a one hour pre-match show and one hour post-match show as Colin Miller and Corey Basso call the action live on AM730.

Saturday's pre-match show kicks off at 6 p.m. PT at whitecapsfc.com/am730.

Here are Colin’s keys for the return to BC Place against LAFC.

Stop Rossi, Vela, Rodriguez, Arango, and Atuesta

Those are five talented players, and it shows the kind of weapons that this LAFC team possess.

For the most part the ‘Caps did well to match up with Rossi, Vela, and Atuesta in the first match, a 2-2 draw. Now LAFC have added Arango and the return of Rodriguez into the mix.

The ‘Caps will need to keep their concentration and pressure at all times when they are in possession.

Match runners

LAFC are still a very good side, don’t let their recent run of form fool you.

Defensive discipline will be critical with LAFC players off the ball making good runs.

The ‘Caps will have to match those runs and keep goal-side as quickly as possible.

Keep the fans engaged

It’s been 41 straight games where the closest fans could get to the team was watching on TV.

There will be a lot of excitement for this match, but the ‘Caps need to give fans something to get behind.

Don’t let this opportunity pass them by.
