Vancouver Whitecaps team news and form: Vancouver performing nicely

No one thought Vancouver Whitecaps would be among the top teams in Major League Soccer at the start of the season, yet here we are. White and his colleagues have been performing quite well this season, and it will be interesting to see if our Colorado Rapids vs Vancouver Whitecaps predictions will succeed, seeing as the visitors have lost only two league games so far.

Predicted lineup: Takaoka (GK), Blackmon, Veselinovic, Laborda, Raposo, Schopf, Cubas, Ahmed, Picault, White & Gauld

Player to watch: Rafael Navarro

This is the first time we are featuring Rafael Navarro as the player to watch in one of our articles, but we believe it’s a well-deserved shoutout. The Rapids’ central midfielder has been at his lethal best throughout this entire season, and we are sure he will help make our Colorado Rapids vs Vancouver Whitecaps predictions a success.

Navarro bossing the midfield

Not only is Rafael a force to be reckoned with in the centre of the pitch, but he is also quite the finisher. Navarro bagged six goals this season, which is an incredible feat, considering he is a central midfielder.
