Here are Colin’s keys for the match at San Jose Earthquakes.

Who steps up in the attack?

The ‘Caps were dealt a blow with Lucas Cavallini out six weeks with injury.

Who will step up to be the focal point of the attack?

Cristian Dajome is also just coming back from injury. Can Deiber Caicedo step up? Brian White? Ryan Raposo?

How many minutes can Ryan Gauld play as he regains his fitness, and what kind of impact can he make?

Tactics go out the window

San Jose never stop working.

The ‘Caps must match their energy and enthusiasm, regardless of Xs and Os.

They may not be the silkiest side, but they are often first to the ball, and they have shown during this seven match unbeaten run that if you are not prepared to work, you will be in for a difficult night.

Stay aggressive

Vancouver are on an unbeaten run of their own, five matches now without a loss.

These two teams have almost identical goals against this season.

The ‘Caps will once again need to be aggressive going forward and press high together.
