Colorado Rapids vs. Chicago Fire - Game Thread

Can the boys in burgundy take down the men in red on Wednesday night? Join us in our game thread tonight!


Colorado has won two games on the spin at Dick's Sporting Goods Park, and have won those games by a 7-1 clip. That's really, really good for a team that couldn't seem to score against  an empty net a month ago, and they'll have another chance to add to their big run before the World Cup break against a weak-looking Chicago Fire side tonight. They'll be missing a few players, but so will the Rapids. Backup-heavy lineups might be the order of the day, so it's going to be an interesting match between a team brimming with confidence and a team that really, really needs to grab a point or three anywhere they can get it at the moment.

Colorado Rapids (6-4-3) vs. Chicago Fire (2-3-7)
