Pedro Morales gave Whitecaps fans a star-powered effort on a busy afternoon in Vancouver's 4-3 victory over the Portland Timbers Sunday.

The 29-year-old midfielder converted on two penalty kicks in the first 26 minutes and added two second-half assists in a match that saw both a Whitecaps surge and snuff out the Timbers's near-revival.

I did not expect this result. Toronto winning in Vancouver after taking the game to penalty kicks? I felt that if Toronto was unable to pile up an early lead, the Whitecaps would have the home advantage as the game wore on.

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.
