BACK ON THE ROAD: After concluding their four-game homestand this past weekend, Vancouver Whitecaps FC are set to hit the road for two consecutive away matches, starting with this midweek clash against FC Cincinnati. Wednesday's game will mark only the second all-time meeting between the two teams, with the 'Caps claiming a 2-1 away victory in the first meeting back in August 2019.**
CAVA CAN:* 'Caps forward Lucas Cavallini has been a big part of the Blue and White's offensive success this season. The Canadian international, who will be aiming to make Canada's roster for this winter's 2022 FIFA Men's World Cup in Qatar, has recorded five goals, as well as an assist, in his last eight MLS appearances. El Tanque also matched his highest goal total with the club thanks to his goal against Minnesota United FC last weekend, putting him up to six strikes on the season.*
RISING ACTION:** After hitting the midway point of the season earlier this month, the Blue and White will look to continue their push for a Western Conference playoff spot with a total of 15 matches remaining in the regular season. Going into the week's MLS action, the 'Caps sit three points outside the playoff line.
