Vancouver Whitecaps vs Colorado Rapids
Both teams to score- 8/13!
Given that both of these clubs currently find themselves below the Western Conference play-off line, every point counts.
Of the two, Colorado Rapids are one point and one place better off, but last season’s best in the west are down in tenth.
At the weekend, Robin Fraser’s side held Columbus Crew to a 1-1 draw in Denver thanks to Diego Rubio’s penalty.
So, the Rapids have actually accumulated 12 points from their last seven outings, only losing to Seattle since 4 July.
Nevertheless, their form is going to need to improve further if they’re to gatecrash the play-offs.
Canadian Championship winners Vancouver Whitecaps meantime haven’t been able to transfer their domestic cup form into MLS.
Vanni Sartini’s team were hammered 5-2 at LA Galaxy on Saturday, so have only won one of their last seven.
On the flip side, the Caps have won eight of their last 12 at BC Place in all competitions, so will be hoping for a victory here.
