Century Link Field has never been kind to the Colorado Rapids as the club has taken just one draw at the C-Link since Seattle Sounders came into MLS. But the Lads are back at it tonight as they play the Sounders before heading back to Colorado for a Saturday home date with the Timbers.
Off This Week: None
Seattle Sounders vs Colorado Rapids--Century Link Field--8:00 PM MDT (Altitude)
I really think that Colorado is building something here and playing Seattle will provide an opportunity to see how far along that build is. That being said, the Rapids have a dreadful time of it at the C-Link and I think this ends in a loss for the good guys. But....don't be shocked if they grab a result.
Portland is hurting again with the loss of Diego Valeri but they will be home on their carpet which should give them a natural advantage. But D.C. is a good team and I think they take a tie out this one.
I am not buying that "RSL is back" and all that crap. They never left. Just because they have a few bad results does not make they suddenly a poor team. I think they sneak a road win out of this as I am not quite convinced that LA has adjusted to losing Marcelo Sarvas.
Will the real Sporting team stand up and be counted? I think they have found their form and they win this won going away.
TFC should win this game and San Jose should lose, but this is the type of match that the Quakes somehow, someway scrape out a result. And they will.
Vancouver Whitecaps vs Real Salt Lake--BC Place--4:00 PM MDT (MLS Live)
Did the Caps get screwed by the refs last Saturday? Who cares. They get their revenge and pick up a win to stop the rot.
Eventually NYCFC will win again and they will finally break their streak against a visiting Houston team.
D.C. United vs Philadelphia Union--RFK Stadium--5:00 PM MDT (MLS Live)
I think it is good that the Union have picked up a couple of wins in a row because there was no way they were as bad as their record stated. But D.C. is a team that is trying to prove the doubters wrong and will win this one. (and why you doubt them I am not sure--they are good)
The Lions have picked up a couple of good results in the last week or two and seem to be finding their form. Columbus is a puzzling team that I cannot figure out at this point. I think the Crew get a surprise win in Orlando.
Montreal is playing some good soccer right now and Chicago is playing inconsistent soccer right now. That has every makings of a 0-0 draw in Chicago.
Colorado Rapids vs Portland Timbers--Dick's Sporting Goods Park--7:00 PM MDT (Altitude)
Rapids will win this one and take two of three in their Cascadia week.
Seattle Sounders vs New York Red Bulls--Century Link Field--3:00 PM MDT (ESPN2)
I am super excited for this one as it should be a solid match. The Sounders will win this one and the Metros troubles will continue.
New England Revolution vs LA Galaxy--Gillette Stadium--5:00 PM MDT (FoxSports1)
MLS Cup Rematch! Yawn. This is a Revs win.
