Colorado Rapids vs. Toronto FC - Game Thread

Join us for today's match against a Toronto FC team lacking some of its star power, but in a stadium Colorado never beats them in.

USA TODAY Sports

It's time for leg two of the Colorado Rapids Canadian tour! They've never beaten Toronto FC at BMO Field, but this upstart Toronto team is missing its two biggest stars (and two of the highest paid players in the league) to injury: Micheal Bradley and Jermain Defoe. Neither even managed the bench, which is bad news for the Reds as the Rapids come in hungry to continue their hot start to the year.

Colorado is missing a bit of star power itself, with Vicente Sanchez out as he waits for his first child to be born. Hopefully the Rapids have just as good a day as he does and ends that 0-6-0 streak at BMO against the Reds.

Colorado Rapids (2-1-1) vs. Toronto FC (3-1-0)

Rapids Lineup: Irwin; Piermayr, O'Neill, Moor, Burch; Jose Mari, LaBrocca, Sturgis, Powers; Buddle, Torres
