A rematch three years in the making is the most important game of the season so far for the Vancouver Whitecaps, says head coach Vanni Sartini. The club knows it must beat Cavalry FC in the second round of the Canadian Championship on Wednesday in order to advance — and Vancouver's record against the Canadian Premier League side isn't exactly positive. The 'Caps were heavily favoured when they came up against Cavalry in the 2019 tournament. But Calgary stunned with a 2-1 aggregate win, ousting t
