Canadian Championship Preview: Vancouver Whitecaps - Montreal Impact

A new Canadian champion will be crowned Wednesday night in Vancouver, with the winner heading to the 2013-14 CONCACAF Champions League.

Russell Teibert - Vancouver Whitecaps
Canada Soccer / Frid
Vancouver Whitecaps (4-3-3): Knighton; Lee, Rusin, Leveron, Harvey; Koffie, Reo-Coker, Davidson; Camilo, Mattocks, Teibert

Montreal Impact (4-4-2): Bush; Brovsky, Nesta, Ferrari, Camara; Romero, Bernier, Felipe, Mapp; Wenger, Di Vaio.

  • For the first time since 2009, there will be a new Canadian champion. Toronto FC has won the previous four editions of this tournament.
  • The Impact have lifted the Voyageurs Cup seven times, although only once (2008) was during the Canadian Championship era. Montreal was a second-division side that season, and managed to progress all the way to the CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinal stage.
  • Vancouver has never won the Voyageurs Cup in the trophy's 11-year history.
  • Montreal can win the championship in regulation time with a victory or with any draw other than 0-0 because of the away-goal tiebreaker. Vancouver needs to win outright. The clubs played to a 0-0 draw at Stade Saputo in the first leg.
  • If regulation time ends with the score at 0-0, the teams will play 30 minutes of extra time. If there is still no winner, a penalty shootout will occur.
