We spoke with Andrew Bahl at Eighty Six Forever to discuss the upcoming match between the Dynamo and the Vancouver Whitecaps

The Houston Dynamo will make their way to BC Place in Vancouver, BC. The last time these two sides met they fought to a 2-1 win in Houston earlier this year. The Dynamo currently sit on a six game unbeaten run with three of those coming on the road, but they've never been able to capture a win in Vancouver which will make this a difficult test for a hot team.

Reviewing wins is kinda fun.

Not many (any?) followers of D.C. United gave them much of a chance against the Vancouver Whitecaps, considering they were still banged up and flying across the country to play on the Caps' garage floor of a field. But hey, give the Black-and-Red credit for sneaking out of pretty and clean British Columbia with the points in a 1-0 win, their second road win on the season by the end of May, equalling the amount of road wins they had all of 2016.

The tie in Vancouver got the job done for D.C. United, and they now find themselves settling into their position in the table while their opponents are fighting for every point they can get.

Trips to the west coast are always a challenge for Eastern Conference teams, so D.C. United's 0-0 draw against the Vancouver Whitecaps was a solid result, especially given the motivation the Whitecaps brought to the game, desperately needing points toclimb above the red line.

With no response from the Rapids from the events of the last week (FourFourTwo article, another loss, C38 letter) outside of an off the cuff interview from Pablo on a local radio station I'm not really feeling the desire to spend a lot of time on a game preview for this team.

This will be a dour game between the two teams with the least amount of shots on goal this season.

For one last time in 2014 the Rapids take the field trying to break their winless streak. If they succeed in Vancouver they will go 5-0-0 against Canada this year, which is about all we could take out of this season, Otherwise its 14 in a row and 1 win in 18 to end the season.

With Nicolas Lodeiro out against Vancouver, his replacement will set tone

Sounder at Heart at related • 1 view

Head coach Brian Schmetzer has nine players he could insert as the central attacking midfielder. His decision will determine the style of play in Sunday's match.

Due to Nicolas Lodeiro's fifth yellow card in just ten games, Clint Dempsey's heart condition forcing him out for the rest of 2016, three potential midfielders coming off of injury, short rest, and Garth Lagerwey's statement that he wants a more system driven organization, guessing the lineup that will face the Vancouver Whitecaps is as difficult as can be.
