Cavalry vs Pacific Lineups & Team News
Despite Joe Mason’s 80th-minute lifeline of a goal in the match against Forge, Cavalry couldn’t cope with the high-intensity soccer that coach Bobby Smyrniotis’ boys provided. Sure, Cavalry had 62.0% possession, but the visitors at ATCO Field were simply superb when it came to counterattacking.
Predicted lineup – Carducci (GK), Kobza, Klomp, Kamdem, Shome, Daley, Trafford, Camargo, Musse, Bevan & Akio
With barely a 27.0% possession in the match against lackluster HFX Wanderers last week, we decided to pick Pacific as the underdogs in our Cavalry vs Pacific prediction. Not only did the team barely have a 27.0% possession, but the only goal against HFX Wanderers was a lucky own goal scored by Zachary Fernandez in the 37th minute of the game at Wanderer Grounds.
Predicted lineup – Gazdov (GK), Mukumbilwa, Meilleur-Giguere, Didic, Dada-Luke, Reid, Young, Aparicio, Manneh, Daniels & Ongaro
Player to Watch: Emil Gazdov
Canadian shot-stopper Emil Gazdov is the only one standing in the way of the success of our Cavalry vs Pacific predictions. His catlike reflexes kept the ball away from Pacific’s net in the crucial match against HFX Wanderers last week, and as a result, Pacific are still in the title fight this year. To advance to the final game, however, Emil Gazdov would have to be at his lethal best once more, as Cavalry already showed they know their way around the opposition’s penalty box. Emil Gazdov made four crucial saves versus the Wanderers. Will he be able to replicate this display against Cavalry? We’ll just have to wait and see what the Canadian Premier League elimination final has stored for us.
