Sacramento Republic Last Match Summary (v Vancouver Whitecaps 2)

It was a strong first half for Sacramento Republic as they had plenty of chances to put Sacramento away in the first 45 minutes. Three chances came early in the first half but poor finishing conspired to hurt the Republic and keep them scoreless.

The Republic had the bulk of the possession in the match but they really failed to truly test Vancouver who seemed up to the task defensively all match. It did however end a frustrating run of three straight losses for the Republic.

Statistical Note: The fifth shot on target for San Antonio FC will be their 150th shot on target in club history.

Key to the Match: San Antonio FC has proven that they don’t need the bulk of the possession in a match, as they have lost the possession statistic in most of the matches played this season and so the key is to not worry about giving up possession, absorb Sacramento’s early pressure and hit them as the tire late on. That last part worked especially well in Seattle last week.

Prediction: San Antonio FC 2 Sacramento Republic 0
