The Rapids will have two recently-injured players, Shkelzen Gashi and Kevin Doyle, back in the lineup and hopefully at full strength. Unfortunately, the team will also be without defenders Axel Sjoberg and Eric Miller, who are both injured.

They take on a Minnesota United squad that has been thumped 5-1 and 6-1 in their first MLS matches. Even Rapids doubters think our under-performing offense can hang at least two on the hapless Minnesota back line.

Colorado Rapids Starting XI (L to R):

Howard; Burch, Burling, Watts, Williams; Cronin, Azira; Gashi, Doyle, Hairston; Badji
