Next Sunday at 4:30am GMT, on matchday 43 of the MLS, we will see COLO play Caps at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park.

It’s a trip to Dick’s Sporting Goods Park for eleventh placed COLO on Sunday, as they take on tenth placed Caps.

Colorado Rapids’ MLS season, has so far seen them gain 33 points, going into this game

Whilst a disappointing 0-0 draw against D.C. United in their last game, is not the worst result they could have experienced, COLO will be keen to improve the result in this fixture.

Also, a draw statistic of three in six games is not all bad, but unfortunately will not bring the success Robin Fraser’s men wishes for ultimately. With an eleventh position in the league and 0 wins, 0 losses and 0 draws, they currently have 33 points in the League.

COLO have won seven meetings, drawn five games, and lost two matches of their 14 League matches at home this season.

A win in this fixture, would take Colorado Rapids’s points from 33 to 36, so far this season.

Vancouver Whitecaps have 34 points to their name, going into this tie

With a win in their previous game, (2-0) against San Jose, Caps will likely be in a positive frame of mind.

Also, Caps have a huge task to over-turn their opponents in this game, having already lost two fixtures this season. With 34 points, they currently sit tenth in the League. The breakdown for the team’s record is 0 wins, 0 losses and 0 draws.

Caps have had a disappointing run of performances on the road, having won two games, drawn four fixtures, and lost nine matches of their 15 League matches away from home this season.

A win in this fixture would take Vancouver Whitecaps’s points to 37 in the League.
