MLS Preview: Minnesota United FC (3-3-3) at Vancouver Whitecaps FC (2-2-5)

Minnesota United FC has won half of its eight all-time road games in Canada (4), alternating wins and losses. Its last road match in Canada was a 3-1 win over the Vancouver Whitecaps FC last July, the team’s largest win on Canadian soil.

The Vancouver Whitecaps FC have not conceded a goal in MLS play in any of their last four matches, the longest streak by any MLS team this season. It is also tied for the longest such streak in the team’s MLS history with streaks in October 2014 and March 2012.

Since August 31 last season, Minnesota United FC has scored 12 total goals in its 16 regular season matches, having scored multiple goals in a single match just twice. That is the fewest goals in that time by any MLS team while the Loons had scored at least two goals in 10 of their last 11 MLS matches prior to its current form.

Vancouver Whitecaps FC have played consecutive 0-0 draws for the second time in MLS, also doing so on March 24-31, 2012. The only team in MLS regular season history that has played three straight scoreless draws was the Colorado Rapids in their first three matches of the 2015 season.

Bongokuhle Hlongwane leads Minnesota United FC with 10 shots on target this season with no other Loons player having more than four in MLS play in 2023. Minnesota United FC is one of two MLS teams without multiple players having five or more shots on goal this season, along with the CF Montreal Impact.
