This weekend the Vancouver Whitecaps go back to Carson, CA to play the LA Galaxy. The Caps have a lifetime record W1-L6-D1 against the Galaxy, and this match kicks off a tough stretch in Vancouver's schedule in which they will play the Galaxy twice and then head out to Sandy, UT to play Real Salt Lake in two weeks.
The Galaxy currently sit seventh in the Western Conference on 4 points (W1-L1-D1), but they are not to be taken lightly. LA's sole win of the season thus far came last weekend at the expense of their StubHub Center co-tenants, Chivas USA. The Galaxy dominated the Goats and easily defeated them by a score of 3 - 0.
Can the Whitecaps get their first ever win on the road against the Galaxy? Tune in this Saturday evening to find out!
Saturday, April 12th 7:30 PM PDT – StubHub Center, Carson, CA
