The Vancouver Whitecaps, who will be visiting Austin FC, will meet on the pitch for the first time on Wednesday, and both teams are looking for a way to the winning line.
At least Whitecaps has earned points. Vancouver (3-7-8, 17 points) will move to Austin for the match in five consecutive draws. The latest result is a tie with no score in San Jose on Friday.
Whitecaps scored five goals on that stretch and was undefeated in the last six games.
“We scored three points,” said Vancouver coach Marc Dos Santos. “We tried. When you can’t win, you can’t win. It’s important not to lose because all the points are important. I’m very proud of everyone …. Unfortunately I We didn’t. We can’t get a perfect score of three. “
Vancouver’s five-game draw is one less than the league record set by Chicago in 2014, Colorado in 2011 and San Jose in 2004. Three Whitecaps wins this season will be at the bottom of the league with Houston, Cincinnati and Toronto.
Whitecaps does not have striker Lucas Cavalini, who will be injured in his left knee until September.
Austin FC (4-10-4, 16 points) head home after losing 1-0 at Real Salt Lake on Saturday. After Julio Cascante was rated as a red card, Austin played most of the second half with just 10 players.
Austin was shut out in 11 of the last 14 games and 12 of 18 games during its first campaign. It has the fewest goals in MLS (13) and is tied to Toronto, which lost the most in the league.
Austin coach Josh Wolff said “I can understand (frustration)” after the defeat on Saturday. “It’s certainly a justified criticism because we haven’t scored goals and won the game. We recognize what this game is and the need to get results. We have to score goals. “
Cassante will not be able to play in Austin’s match, and defender Zan Kolmanić (ankle) and midfielder Sebastian Driushi (leg) are likely to be injured on Saturday.
