The Colorado Rapids travel south to Houston, taking their eight-game losing streak (in all competitions) to face the Houston Dynamo at BBVA Compass Stadium.

As you read in the earlier game preview, the Rapids (2-8-2) have played well in Houston. In fact, over the last 15 games, the Rapids have only lost once in the last 15 games (9-1-5) and have outscored them 26-12. But this is 2018. In the last 23 league road games, the Rapids are 1-3-19—that’s four results in that span.

Houston, however, has won three straight games at home, scoring over three goals in those three matches. The Dynamo sit seventh in the conference at 5-5-3 (18 points). The Rapids play a rather formidable foe on the road.

So, it’s an hour until gametime. Here’s the Starting XI for your Colorado Rapids:
