Sounders vs Whitecaps: Sartini Aims for Quick Turnaround

The upcoming match between the Seattle Sounders and the Vancouver Whitecaps in MLS promises to be an exciting Cascadia Cup showdown on Saturday.

Vancouver Whitecaps hope for a turnaround after two consecutive losses as they prepare to face their rivals, the Seattle Sounders, in the Cascadia Cup clash.

Despite sitting seventh in the Western Conference with 18 points, Vancouver has struggled recently, earning only two points out of the last 12 available.

After a 3-0 loss to Los Angeles FC and a 1-0 defeat against the Colorado Rapids – where they played with 10 men due to a red card – the Whitecaps face the Sounders with little time to prepare.

Vancouver’s coach, Vanni Sartini, sees the quick turnaround as an opportunity for redemption, expressing disappointment in the team’s recent performances.

Seattle, on the other hand, currently occupies the 10th spot in the Western Conference with 13 points from 13 games and aims to bounce back following a 2-0 loss to Real Salt Lake.

Raul Ruidiaz is a key player to watch for the Sounders, having scored eight goals in 11 matches against the Whitecaps.

Levonte Johnson of the Whitecaps will be looking to make an impact after his team was shut out in recent games.

Despite recent success against Seattle, Vancouver faces challenges, while Seattle looks to capitalize on their opponents’ struggles to secure a win.

According to Opta win probability, Seattle Sounders are slight favorites with a 50.1% chance of winning compared to Vancouver Whitecaps’ 22.3%.
