Vancouver Whitecaps vs LAFC preview

Over the years this has been a highly entertaining fixture with both teams to score paying out in each of the last five meetings.

Vancouver also have a strong home record against the side from Los Angeles winning each of their last three games, and with Vanni Sartini's men in such strong form in front of their own fans, another competitive showing from the Canadians should be expected.

The visitors have kept just one clean sheet in their last six away games and have not been as impressive on the road as they have been at the Banc of California stadium. Opposing an away win therefore should be of interest.

Vancouver Whitecaps vs LAFC tips and predictions

The Whitecaps are priced at 4/5 (1.80) to win with a +0.5 Asian handicap, which pays out if they avoid defeat, something they have managed in 18 of their last 20 home league games.
