Forge vs Vancouver Lineups & Team News
Lined up in an ultra-offensive 4-3-3 formation, Forge managed to crack Pacific 0-2 at Starlight Stadium in the previous Canadian Premier League showdown. The game on the 22nd of July was fully under Pacific’s control if you check the statistics. The home side had way more shots at target, more possession, and more shot on target. However, coach Smyrniotis’ boys showed class when taking the goalkeeper one-on-one, and we’re sure that more of the same on Saturday will make our Forge vs Vancouver predictions a slam dunk.
Predicted lineup – Henry (GK), Metusala, Achinioti-Jonsson, James, Rama, Jensen, Hojabrpour, Bekker, Campbell, Poku & Choiniere
Vancouver’s last Canadian Premier League game had it all – a goal for coach Ghotbi’s side, five from the visitors, two red cards for Vancouver, and one for Cavalry. It’s that sort of inconsistency that urged us to write the above-mentioned Forge vs Vancouver predictions.
Predicted lineup – Irving (GK), Kwak, Romeo, Kane, Cameron, Garcia, Simmons, White, Hundal, Cantave & Diaz
Player to Watch: Calum Irving
Vancouver’s captain is certainly not enjoying his best days. In the previous CPL brawl, Irving conceded five goals! Sure, key defender Martinez was sent-off early in the game, but Irving could’ve certainly done better with his goalkeeping. Cavalry scored more goals than Irving had successful saves. And considering the fact that now coach Ghotbi’s boys will have to somehow find a way to nullify the 2022 Canadian Premier League champions at their shrine, our Forge vs Vancouver predictions just couldn’t have picked the visitors as favorites. We expect to see a poor game from 30-year-old Irving.
