The Colorado Rapids are traveling up north to take on Minnesota United in the second meeting between the two teams this season (and well, ever). The first game between the two ended in a 2-2 draw in Commerce City a little over a month ago, and since then, things have not been going well for the Burgundy Boys. Between the injuries and trades/acquisitions, it’s been a rough go for the last few games. But we’re all hoping things will look up soon, starting with a win today.
I think most of us are having mixed emotions about seeing Sam Cronin and Marc Burch (probably - he is questionable with a groin issue) play for the other team today. If you’re like me, you’re feeling sad, nervous, and maybe even a little excited to see how things go against our former captain and fullback.
Mo Saeid gets his first start for the Rapids against his former team, replacing the injured Nana.
COLORADO RAPIDS STARTING XI:
Zac MacMath; Mekeil Williams, Kortne Ford, Bobby Burling, Eric Miller; Mohammed Saeid, Micheal Azira; Marlon Hairston, Dillon Powers, Dominique Badji; Kevin Doyle,
