The Colorado Rapids enter the 2016 Lamar Hunt US Open Cup tonight with a Colorado Derby match against in-state rivals Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC. The Rapids are currently top of the table in Major League Soccer and will be taking on an in-form side in the Switchbacks who are currently in second place (with two games in hand) in the Western Conference of the United Soccer League.
This match is a rematch from the 2015 US Open Cup match that saw the Rapids pick up a 4-1 win over the Switchbacks at Dick's Sporting Goods Park. The Rapids were led by goals from Dillon Serna, Joseph Greenspan and Dominique Badji led the way for the Burgundy Boys as they were never really threatened in that match. But this is a new season and both of these teams will feel like they can win this game.
Here is your Burgundy Starting XI:
Zac MacMath, Meikeil Williams, Axel Sjoberg, Eric Miller, Dennis Castillo, Sam Cronin, Dillon Powers, Dominique Badji, Marco Pappa, Dillon Serna, Conor Doyle,
