Burgundy Links: 12 April 2016

Happy Tuesday!

Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

It's Tuesday Colorado Rapids fans and we have two matches this week to satiate your appetite for soccer.   But before that there are a few stories we are following:

Major League Soccer released its team of the week.  The Rapids did not have a player on the squad.

The injury to Darlington Nagbe has been talked about and whether Nigel De Jong should get suspended.  Stuart Holden offers his thoughts.

And not to be out done, De Jong says tackle was 50-50.  Officially, Burgundy Wave thinks he is full of shit.

This is not MLS news, but it is important to talk about.  After the recent attacks in Paris and Brussels there was a concern if the Euro's were being targeted.  We know the answer now.

The two teams the Rapids play this week are Sporting Kansas City and New York Red Bulls.  Fortunately they played each other on Saturday.  Is there anything the Rapids can take from that match?

The Red Bulls are struggling.  But it's not time to freak out yet.
