Following an impressive 2-0 victory against Real Monarchs in Salt Lake City, St Louis CITY2 look to add to their winning record at home as they take on Vancouver FC 2 in MLS NEXT Pro. The match will kick off this Saturday, May 7 at 7:00 p.m. CST at Saint Louis University’s Hermann Stadium.  

Against Real Monarchs, CITY2 dominated from the first kick to the final whistle, with two late goals from forward Josh Dolling sealing the team’s fourth win of the campaign. In the opening minutes, CITY2 dictated the tempo of the match and though their impressive play didn’t lead to a goal in the first half, their chance creation and intricate passing showed how lethal their attack can be. Defensively, they were as solid as a rock with their counter-pressing limiting the Monarchs to only one shot on target.

After losing their opening game of the season, Whitecaps FC 2 have been undefeated in their last five games, which includes victories in their last three matches. They have scored eight goals in total against their last three opponents while conceding just two goals at the other end. CITY2 will be eager to put an end to the Whitecap’s run in front of their home crowd at Hermann Stadium.

Following last weekend’s win, CITY2 improved their record to 4-1, but are level on points with Whitecaps FC 2 in the Western Conference standings, albeit with a game in hand. Both teams are currently three points behind Houston who is leading the conference with 15 points. With both teams knowing how crucial a win is to their position in the standings, fans should expect an intense battle.
