Our Colorado Rapids are in rainy New York City today to take on David Villa and company in Yankee Stadium. It’s an early one for us, with an 11 am kick-off.
The Rapids are on a four-game losing streak, while NYC is 1-1-2 in their last four matches, including a pretty exciting 2-2 draw against LAFC last week.
Dominique Badji was a last-minute scratch last week after pulling his hamstring in warm-ups, but looks like it was more precautionary than anything as he’s in the starting XI today. Joe Mason will line up as the other striker. The Rapids are also missing Jack Price today due to yellow card accumulation, so Micheal Azira is getting his first start of the 2018 season.
