Guess the Starting XI - Match Seven vs. Houston

New, 15 comments

It’s the final week before the international break, and the final match of the first quarter of our guess the starting XI contest!

Welcome back everyone. After a really busy week, things have settled down slightly on the Whitecaps front, as there’s just one match left to focus on before the club heads on the international break.

Now having dropped two straight, VWFC will be looking to create some positive momentum, but so will Houston, after a tough 3-1 loss to Colorado last weekend.

On the predictions front, it was probably the toughest week for you guys so far. The third game in nine days made for an unpredictable lineup, but with Marc Dos Santos saying that he has his full squad available for this weekend, things should be a bit easier to pin down.

A reminder that this is the last week of the first quarter, so I will be deducting your lowest score and crowing a first quarter winner after this match.

Good luck everyone, and enjoy the match. Rules and Standings are included below:

  • Predictions will be ‘valid’ if posted HERE prior to the lineup being officially announced, usually about an hour before kickoff.
  • You receive 1 point for every player you correctly guess to be in the Starting XI. You receive 4 bonus points for correctly predicting all 11 starters.
  • You get 5 points for correctly guessing Win/Lose/Draw, this doubles to 10 if you also predict the right score-line along with the result.
  • That means, if you correctly predict the Starting XI, Final Score, and Winner, you can earn 25 points!
