Betting Tips for Vancouver vs Pacific

Lackluster Vancouver will try to chip away points from Pacific on the 3rd of June at Willoughby Community Park Stadium. Will the new kid on the block succeed? Find out the answer in our key Vancouver vs Pacific betting tips for the Canadian Premier League.


Pacific have the three points ripe for the plucking. That’s what our key Vancouver vs Pacific prediction says about this game. The visitors rank 2nd, and with only a two-point gap between themselves and title frontrunners Forge, we’re sure they’ll do their best to defeat Vancouver on the 3rd of June.

The first-ever clash between the two teams was played not too long ago – on the 16th of April. A little over a month has passed since then and now that the beginners’ luck is no long aiding Vancouver, we’re sure Pacific will win with a bigger margin than the 1-0 we saw in the first game.

Over 1.5 Pacific Goals

We already told you in our previous Vancouver vs Pacific betting tip that coach James Merriman’s boys bagged only one versus Vancouver in their previous duel. However, we believe that this rematch will be a far more glamorous affair.

Two goals by Pacific should raise no eyebrows as James Merriman’s players are fighting for the top of the table with Forge while Vancouver are trying desperately to keep their heads above water.

Both teams have objectives to fulfill and we’re sure that the pressure to succeed will take a giant toll on Vancouver on the 3rd of June.

Vancouver vs Pacific Lineups & Team News


It may be interesting for you to know that Vancouver’s debut in the Canadian Premier League was against none other than Pacific. The game on the 16th of April was held at Starlight Stadium and, sadly, coach Afshin Ghotbi’s boys couldn’t cope with the pressure and eventually lost 1-0. However, conceding only one versus a prolific Canadian Premier League team such as Pacific is nothing to be ashamed of.

Predicted lineup – Irving (GK), Kane, Bakare, Martinez, Crawford, Simmons, Zadeh, Chung, Bitar, Hundval & Sandoval


With a solid 2023 campaign record of three victories, three draws, and only one loss, Pacific will try to live up to their reputation as the favorite to win this duel with a solid display over Afshin Ghotbi’s side. Pacific’s players were fortunate to earn a point in the previous Canadian Premier League duel as HFX Wanderers had a whopping 18 shots at target and certainly deserved more than a 1-1 draw at Starlight Stadium.

Predicted lineup – Gazdov (GK), Dada-Luke, Didic, Meilleur-Giguere, Mukumbilwa, Toussaint, Young, Aparicio, Heard, Reid & Manneh

Player to Watch: Sean Young

Many of Pacific’s players now have two goals to their name. It’s difficult to single out anyone but coach James Merriman should be happy that he has so many players adept at scoring at his disposal.

However, we pick Sean Young as the player to watch and we consider him a key cog in our Vancouver vs Pacific prediction today. He’s only a central midfielder but he already has two goals and two assists to his name thus topping both categories for Pacific.

It would take Vancouver’s midfield a monumental effort to nullify unyielding Young and we’re sure that we have yet to see the very best from him in the Canadian Premier League this season. Sean Young plays quite well at Willoughby Community Park Stadium since the start of the season and it wouldn’t be unheard of if he puts on a show for the fans once more.
