Game Preview: Rapids v FC Dallas

Game Preview: Rapids v LAFC

by Brendan Wyatt The Colorado Rapids are back home to host LAFC, who we may recall, is the team that started this current losing streak. This skid that has seen the Rapids lose six straight, really has to do with the fact that they have scored just one goal while the other guys hit the back…

Game Preview: Rapids v LAFC

by Brendan Wyatt The Colorado Rapids opted to stay in LA, after taking on the Galaxy last week as they prepare to face LAFC tonight.  A smart move by the coaching staff and club, but it does make for predicting a lineup a bit more difficult.  By staying on the west coast, the team can…

Game Preview: Rapids v Earthquakes

by Brendan Wyatt The Colorado Rapids play host to the San Jose Earthquakes tonight in a cellar battle that could see one team ending that game on a winning streak.  Both teams have spent most, if not all season, at the bottom of the table but both teams won against better teams last week. The…
