Something's Gotta Give
Vancouver enters Wednesday’s match winless through seven games dating back to May 8 when they defeated Montreal 2-0. Despite their winless streak they have picked up results in their last two matches against FC Dallas and Seattle Sounders, playing to a 2-2 draw in each game.
Connections: Due to the ongoing pandemic Real Salt Lake and Vancouver Whitecaps have been sharing Rio Tinto Stadium as both of their home stadiums. Since March, RSL has hosted the Whitecaps, with them fully based out of Rio Tinto Stadium and training at America First Field. This will be the second time the two sides go against one another since Vancouver made the temporary move to Utah.
