The day is finally here - a rematch of the Western Conference Finals. While today’s game might not hold the same weight as that night last November, there is definitely a sense of revenge in the air for the Colorado Rapids’ fanbase.
Between the ridiculous schedule and a long list of injuries, Pablo Mastroeni has started to grasp for straws a bit for the lineups the past few games. Even so, the Rapids have won five out of their last six home games, and thankfully, we aren’t missing any players for Gold Cup call-ups.
Seattle, on the other hand, has lost five of their last six road games (and that 6th game was a draw). While they only have one questionable injury, they are without a couple of key players: Brad Evans (suspended), Cristian Roldan and Jordan Morris (USMNT), and Oniel Fisher (Jamaica NT).
We’ve definitely got a chance at this one. Even though the Rapids are pretty bad on the road, it’s a completely different, totally confident team at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park. I’m excited for this one! Let’s go ‘Pids!
