Guess the Starting XI – Canadian Championship vs. Pacific

Welcome back, everyone.

A midweek date on the island beckons for the Vancouver Whitecaps. After a big win this past weekend, can this team continue their positive form and reach a second straight cup final? We shall see. In terms of the lineup, Vanni Sartini confirmed today that his team will go with a back four on Wednesday night, and that Yohei Takaoka will start between the sticks. Other than that, the cards are still close to the chest, but I imagine this one will be close to full strength.

In term of predictions, I’ll have updated standings this coming weekend.

Good luck!

  • Predictions will be ‘valid’ if posted HERE (or more accurately, whichever is the correct match thread) before the lineup is officially announced, usually about an hour before kickoff.
  • You receive 1 point for every player you correctly guess to be in the Starting XI. You receive 4 bonus points for correctly predicting all 11 starters.
  • You get 5 points for correctly guessing Win/Lose/Draw, this doubles to 10 if you also predict the right score-line along with the result.
  • All this means, if you correctly predict the Starting XI, Final Score, and Winner, you can earn 25 points!
  • At the end of each half, the contestant’s lowest two scores of that period will be deducted from the cumulative standings

  1. The XI was just released for the game tonight. I’m not sure how anyone ever wins this guess the starting XI game. There are a couple of names you can count on, and the rest is like drawing names from a hat. There is no rhyme or reason.

  2. 2-0 Whitecaps

    Martins Veselinovic Blackmon Raposo
    Teibert Cubas Ahmed
    White Vite

    Let’s do this! Wasn’t really sure with whom to replace to slot in Teibert. Maybe he won’t start and we’ll Yao instead (joke but you never know). The last time Yao made an appearance, he looked a lot lighter on his feet than his first.
