WE MEET AGAIN: Vancouver Whitecaps FC are set to face a familiar foe as they wrap up their two-match homestand at BC Place against Western Conference adversaries Minnesota United FC this Saturday, May 6. The match will mark the second and final meeting of the MLS regular season between the two sides, as the 'Caps claimed a point in Saint Paul back on March 25 thanks to Simon Becher's last gasp equalizer. The 'Caps enter the match unbeaten in seven games, while the Loons are on a four-game winless run in MLS play.

CLEAN STREAK: The 'Caps have kept four consecutive clean sheets and have not allowed a goal in the last 410 minutes of MLS play, making it the longest shutout streak in the league so far this season. In fact, the streak started against Minnesota at Allianz Field on March 25. Additionally, Yohei Takaoka has been named to the MLS Team of the Matchday in back-to- back starts. The overall club record shutout streak in MLS is 433 minutes set across the 2011 and 2012 seasons, while the club record single-season shutout streak is 427 minutes set at the beginning of the 2012 season.

BUSY MAY: The month of May is set to be a busy one for the Blue and White.

Next up after Saturday's match, the 'Caps head to Ontario to face York United FC in the quarterfinals of the Canadian Championship on May 10, followed by a trip down to Oregon for our second meeting of the season against Cascadia rivals Portland Timbers on May 13.
