The Colorado Rapids will look to build on their victory on the weekend but face a tough task as the club will do battle with the Seattle Sounders. The Rapids have never won at CenturyLink Field, but will look to end that streak after coming away with a win over Vancouver on Saturday night in Commerce City. Luis Solignac and Kevin Doyle both made their debuts for the Rapids as well.

Colorado (2-2-7, 13 points) are still at the foot of the Western Conference, but find themselves in much better spirits after getting their first win at home since July of 2014. Lucas Pittinari found the scoresheet and the Rapids held on for a victory over Vancouver. The game did have some brief weather delays as rainstorms occurred throughout Denver for much of the day.

Seattle (6-3-2, 20 points) currently find themselves in 2nd place in the Western Conference after a 0-0 home draw against Sporting Kansas City on the weekend. Sounders goalkeeper Stefan Frei recorded his league-high 6th shutout on the season. Seattle will be confident going into this game knowing that the Rapids have never won in their home ground since the Emerald City club joined MLS in 2009.

Colorado head coach Pablo Mastroeni most likely breathed a sigh of relief after his team found a way to win over the Vancouver Whitecaps. The club has struggled at home and has only won one other game so far this season. Despite being last in the West, the team can look up as a few wins can get the Rocky Mountain club back in the race for the MLS playoffs.
