Mar 28 2023, 9:40 pm

Vancouver Whitecaps have advanced to the quarterfinals of the CONCACAF Champions League, but they’ll have to beat one of the top teams in the league to continue their march to the FIFA Club World Cup.

The Whitecaps are taking on Los Angeles FC on Wednesday, April 5 at BC Place. The two teams will square off in Vancouver and in LA for the home-and-home series, with the victor moving on to the semifinals.

The Whitecaps made it to the quarterfinals by defeating Real España by an aggregate score of 7-3. But their next opponents won’t be easy, as LAFC is the defending Supporters Shield and MLS Cup champions.

However, the two teams have an even all-time series record with 4W-4L-3D apiece. More recently, the Whitecaps have dominated their West Coast rivals with a record of 3W-1L-2D.

The winner of the CONCACAF quarterfinals showdown will play the victor of Mexico’s Atlas FC vs. Philadelphia Union in the next round. And the team that comes out on top of the tournament will qualify to play in an expanded 32-team FIFA Club World Cup.
