If you haven't checked it out already you can read our preview. In lieu of the match we attempted to get the current status of former CD Guadalajara (and future Chivas USA?) player Omar Salgado.

It's 85 degrees with a swift wind moving in from the Northeast. It will be interesting to see if anyone can take advantage of that.

Interesting facts:

  • The team's have combined to score eight goals in their last three contests
  • Opta has just tweeted however that the Whitecaps have not conceded a home goal in their past six games
  • Chivas USA have never won in Vancouver.

Lineups:

Chivas: Kennedy, Delgado, Burling, Bocanegra, Borja, Alvarez, Mejia, Minda De la Fuente, Morales, Torres

Available subs: McLain, Farfan, Avila, Soto, Fondy, Bowen, Purdy
