Both teams are coming off wins last week - the Colorado Rapids with a 1-0 win at home, while the New York Red Bulls came back and beat Atlanta United 2-1 on the road. While neither team is in top form yet, this match should be a good test for each side. With one game already cancelled this week in the Northeast (NE v. Orlando), it’s going to be a cold one. But we know the Rapids can handle the cold.
Today, we’ll see the return of Tim Howard, and Caleb Calvert is starting for Kevin Doyle, perhaps because Doyle was sick earlier this week. Looks like Shkëlzen Gashi might get some minutes, too. Should be a great game today!
COLORADO RAPIDS STARTING XI:
Tim Howard; Marc Burch, Axel Sjöberg, Jared Watts, Eric Miller; Sam Cronin, Micheal Azira; Dominique Badji, Dillon Powers, Marlon Hairston; Caleb Calvert
BENCH: Mekeil Williams, Shkëlzen Gashi, Dillon Serna, Zac MacMath, Ricardo Perez, Nana Adjei-Boateng, Bobby Burling
OUT: Kevin Doyle (head - sick?), Alan Gordon (back)
