Tampa Bay Rowdies vs. Vancouver Whitecaps preview


Rowdies at Vancouver

When/where: 7; Swangard Stadium, Burnaby, British Columbia


The opponent: Vancouver enters with a 3-2-3 record. The Whitecaps are near the bottom of the U.S. Soccer Federation Division 2 in goals with seven, but they boast one of the stingiest defenses, allowing a league-best four goals. Teams have scored on the Whitecaps in only two of their eight matches.

The standings: The Rowdies (18 points) are second in the USL Conference and trail conference leader Austin by two points. Vancouver (12 points) sits atop the NASL Conference, one point ahead of second-place Carolina.

Homefield advantage: Vancouver hasn't lost at home in five matches this season (3-0-2). And the Whitecaps haven't allowed a goal at home.
