Are You Smarter Than Paul Mariner?: Round 20

New, 44 comments

First game of two this week for the Reds and a familiar foe comes to town. Predict the score of Wednesday's game and climb the standings.

John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports

The busy month of July carries on as our old friend Carl Robinson brings his Vancouver Whitecaps side to his old stomping grounds again on Wednesday night. A well rested Michael Bradley and red hot Jermain Defoe will be waiting at BMO. TFC will be without their captain Steven Caldwell however as news came out Tuesday afternoon that he has suffered a quad tear. The timing isn’t the greatest as TFC now heads into busiest time in their schedule having to rely on Doneil Henry, Nick Hagglund and Bradley Orr at the back.

Vancouver comes in holding their own in a very tough western conference, currently holding onto the final playoff spot. The Whitecaps haven’t been lighting up the score sheet since the return from the World Cup break scoring just two goals in their first four games back. With that said Vancouver always seems to get things going on the offensive end when they meet TFC. Kekuta Menneh, Darren Mattocks and Eric Hurtado all bring tonnes of pace that the Toronto back line has never handled well. The ‘Caps midfield is strong with Morales, Laba and Koffie and the backline is usually reliable.

Can the ‘Caps rebound from their 3-1 loss to Chivas this past weekend or will TFC twist the knife in their western Canadian foes? Post your predictions below or tweet your predictions to me, @Stouffvillain to ensure that your entry is accurately logged. As always 2 points for the correct result, 1 point for the correct TFC score and 1 point for the correct opponent score. Here are the up to date results.
