Montreal Impact vs Vancouver Whitecaps : Lineups, how to watch

Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Sports

Didier Drogba was the center of attention as the Impact was getting ready for its first MLS game of the 2016 season. Being the center of attention is not necessarily a bad thing and with Drogba's status in the world of football, it's only natural.

But his knee's sensitivity to turf will see him miss 4 out of Montreal's first 5 games. That storyline filled the headlines around the league but the biggest challenge for the club is how it will kickstart the season against a strong Whitecaps squad.

As Mauro Biello will have his first game behind the bench,  as a "non-interim" head coach,  his "philosophy"  will face it's first obstacle this afternoon at BC place.
