PLAY BALL: Vancouver Whitecaps FC continue their seven-game road swing with a clash against Eastern Conference side New York City FC on Saturday, September 2 at Yankee Stadium. Saturday's clash will mark the 'Caps third trip to Yankee Stadium, having previously visited in 2016 and 2018. Heading into Matchday 30 action, New York City find themselves sitting in 13th place in the East and have dropped five of their last seven fixtures across all competitions.

LOOKING UP: After back-to-back wins on the road, the 'Caps sit in fifth in the Western Conference and tied for fourth in points-per-game heading into the weekend. The Blue and White, who have a game in hand on most teams sitting in a playoff spot, have posted the second-most goals and the third-best goal differential in the West. With a win on Saturday in New York, the 'Caps could jump to as high as third in the West depending on other results.

GAULDEN RUN: Ryan Gauld has been one of the most in form players in MLS recently. On Wednesday, the Scotsman became the 'Caps all-time leader in MLS assists with 23 and extended his recent run to 10 goals as well as nine assists in his past 14 appearances across all competitions with his assist on Brian White's goal. He also continues to lead MLS in goal contributions since May 31 with 16 (nine goals, seven assists).
