MASTER OF YOUR DESTINY: The ‘Caps continue their push to the playoffs with two massive Western Conference matches this week.

Three days later, the ‘Caps return to their home for the first half of 2021 as they visit fifth place Real Salt Lake for the first time since being a tenant at Rio Tinto Stadium.

EL TANQUE IS BACK: Following his suspension for caution accumulation, Lucas Cavallini is back in the mix. The team’s leading scorer has found the back of the net in his last two MLS matches and is tied for third most game-winning goals in the league with four.

SCHÖPF THERE HE IS: Newest member of the ‘Caps, midfielder Alessandro Schöpf made his MLS debut over the weekend as a second half substitute. The Austrian international, who had played his entire club career in the German Bundesliga, signed with Vancouver at the start of August.
