On Wednesday May 2nd, the Colorado Rapids will travel to Gillette Stadium to face the New England Revolution. Colorado overcame a three-game losing streak as they defeated Chivas USA 4-0 at home on the weekend. New England have lost three in a row and are desperately looking to pick up points at home.
On a game that was hyped with the return of star forward Conor Casey, Colorado's offense came to life in the second half as Tony Cascio opened the scoring and substitute Kamani Hill scored two goals. Jeff Larentowicz added a goal from the penalty spot sandwiching the two Hill tallies.
The Revs haven't beaten the Rapids since 2007 and the Rapids have had somewhat decent results in Foxborough over the years. Revolution head coach Jay Heaps has found it difficult in succeeding Steve Nicol and has so far only guided New England to two wins on the new campaign.
Colorado head coach Oscar Pareja recently changed the tactical formation and Omar Cummings combined well with Tony Cascio on the weekend. It is not known if Conor Casey will start; especially given the fact that New England play on FieldTurf, notorious for being bad on athletes ankles and the like. Nonetheless, Colorado will look to take advantage against a team that has struggled so far in 2012.
