On Wednesday, July 18th, the Colorado Rapids will travel to Toronto, Ontario, to face Toronto FC at BMO Field. The match is scheduled for kickoff at 5:00 MT and will be broadcasted on Altitude.

Frustration is mounting for the Colorado Rapids as the Rocky Mountain club has now lost five of their last six games. Head coach Oscar Pareja and goalkeeper Matt Pickens were especially upset when confronted by the media after the 2-1 home loss to Western Conference bottom feeders, FC Dallas. The Rapids are playing the worst team in the league in Toronto FC, but that does not guarantee three points at all.

Surprisingly, the Colorado Rapids have never won a match against Toronto FC at BMO Field. This dates back to 2007 when the Ontario-based club became the first team from Canada to enter Major League Soccer. However, Colorado can find solace in the fact that the team did lift the 2010 MLS Cup trophy for the team's only silverware in history at their stadium.

While the Rapids have dropped five of six, TFC have won their last two, most recently against New England on the weekend. While striker Danny Koevermans is injured, veteran midfielder Torsten Frings and rookie Luis Silva are both in form. The Rapids are desperately looking for points as they have fallen behind the pack in the Western Conference playoff race.
