  DID YOU KNOW?
  • Vancouver's Darren Mattocks will be suspended for this game.
  • Chivas USA is playing for the first time since a scoreless draw with FC Dallas on June 23. The Rojiblancos have lost just once in their last seven games.
  • The game at Chivas USA is the third in a five-game road swing for the Whitecaps. They will not play again at BC Place until July 18, when they meet the LA Galaxy.
  • A goal from Whitecaps FC center back Jay DeMerit gave his club a 1-0 win in the first meeting between the teams this season, on March 17 at the Home Depot Center. It was the first victory by either team in the all-time series, and Vancouver's first-ever away win.
  • Chivas USA is the only club in MLS with a losing home record and a winning away record, posting an anemic 2-6-1 at the Home Depot center and a robust 3-1-3 on the road.
