third consecutive defeat for Schöpf


Alessandro Schöpf and his Vancouver Whitecaps have suffered their third consecutive Major League Soccer defeat. The Canadians lost 3-1 at the Colorado Rapids.

The 28-year-old Tyrolean received a yellow card in the 52nd minute and was substituted twelve minutes later when the score was 1-2.

With 34 points in 30 games, the Whitecaps rank eleventh in the Western Conference, nine points from a place in the playoffs.

On the other hand, coach Gerhard Struber celebrates with the New York Red Bulls a 2-1 success at home against the New England Revolution. The “Bulls” sit in third place in the Eastern Conference with 50 points in 31 games.

Without ex-Rapidler Ercan Kara, Orlando City is down a solid 5-1 at East leaders Philadelphia Union but remains fifth in the East with 42 points in 29 games. This is the first loss after four straight wins for the recent US Open Cup winners.

Taxiarchis Fountas is again absent from the DC United selection. Wayne Rooney’s side, bottom of the Eastern table, could not do better than a 0-0 at Real Salt Lake, but scored points for the third time in a row.
