'CAPS IN HOLLYWOOD: On Saturday, the 'Caps will shift their focus towards MLS regular season play, as they face Western Conference rivals Los Angeles Galaxy at Dignity Health Sports Park in the side's 2023 home opener. Vancouver will be looking to build off their 1-1 draw against FC Dallas last week in order to keep racking up points in MLS play. So far, the Galaxy have posted a 0W-1L-1D record through their first two matches, recording one goal in the process. The 'Caps claimed a 3-0 victory in their previous match against Los Angeles last September, with Ryan Gauld, Pedro Vite and Tosaint Ricketts getting on the scoresheet.
ALL TOGETHER NOW: With plenty of matches coming up in the early part of the season, the Blue and White rested some players in Wednesday's Concacaf Champions League second leg against Real CD España. Some of those rested players in Andrés Cubas, Ryan Gauld, Julian Gressel, Alessandro Schöpf, and Ranko Veselinović will now travel to Los Angeles to join up with the squad ahead of Saturday's match.
MILESTONES ABOUND: Several 'Caps players are close to reaching some big career milestones heading into this weekend's clash against the Galaxy. Tristan Blackmon is one away from reaching 100 MLS appearances (including playoffs and MiB), while Russell Teibert is two away from reaching 250 MLS regular season appearances and Julian Gressel is four away from 200 MLS appearances (including playoffs). Brian White is also nearing the 50-goal mark in his career, having scored his 47th career goal on Wednesday.
