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…
