Tips and Prediction
When Colorado Rapids lost to Vancouver Whitecaps by a slim margin at BC Place Stadium on Thursday morning, they were unable to advance into the playoff spots.
Robin Fraser’s team had won their first two games of August, against the New York Red Bulls and Minnesota United, before holding out for a draw with the Columbus Crew on August 14.
Colorado Rapids are now in 11th in the Western Conference standings with 31 points from 25 games, six points and one spot ahead of Saturday’s visitors, and two points behind Vancouver Whitecaps for the final playoff spot.
The Rapids are now on a four-game winning streak, have only lost twice in their 13 MLS games this season, have eight points out of a possible twelve, and will now play at home. Houston Dynamo, on the other side, were left empty handed once more after failing to hold onto their lead and losing to Montreal at home 3-2 last Sunday.
Sebastian Ferreira’s 12th-minute goal was countered by goals from Romell Quioto and Alistair Johnston in a 13-minute span, but after Daniel Steres restored parity for the second time in the match, Finnish attacker Lassi Lappalainen scored in the 63rd minute to give the visitors the three points.
Houston Dynamo will be attempting to end their losing trend, but they have lost seven of their past eight away games in all competitions, with the lone exception being a victory at San Jose Earthquakes on July 18.
The Colorado Rapids’ resurrected team encountered a hiccup last week, but we anticipate them to return this week with a vengeance. They face a Houston team that is struggling, as they have dropped seven of their past eight away games across all competitions. This weekend, we predict that the Rapids will win all three games and further humiliate the visiting team.
