Charlotte vs Vancouver Prediction and MLS Odds: Recent form
The freshers Charlotte FC don’t have a lot riding on them in the Eastern conference but a big debut season is something that every side dreams of and plays for in the MLS. They didn’t have the best of getaways with five consecutive defeats initially but triumphs against New England and Cincinnati turned the tide slightly for them. In the last five outings, they bowed down against the likes of Inter Montreal and Orlando City but the consolation victories have receded the net effect overall.
On the other hand, the Vancouver Whitecaps have failed to string any kind of momentum as they have found themselves in the last spot in the Western Conference. After finishing 6th in 2021 and earning a playoff spot, the side would be longing to draw some inspiration from their own performance. They have so far managed to achieve 3 wins and have been on the wrong side of the result on six occasions. But the only respite is their last game against Montreal where they convincingly took down the challenge of the opposition.
