Colorado Rapids Prediction- Can Colorado Rapids win four on the trot?

Colorado Rapids currently occupy bottom spot in the Western Conference but their upcoming fixture against leaders Los Angeles looks far from being an open and shut case.

Despite sitting bottom of the pile, Colorado Rapids are actually just 5 points adrift of 7th placed Minnesota United and the play-off pack prior to Friday night’s match.

The hosts have clawed their way back into top seven contention having put together a promising looking sequence of 6 matches without defeat in the MLS.

This improvement on results includes 4 wins and 2 draws and Colorado Rapids won’t be over-awed by the visit of league leaders Los Angeles on Friday night.

Recent wins against LA Galaxy, Columbus Crew, Cincinnati and Minnesota United along with points in draws with Philadelphia Union and Vancouver Whitecaps have made them tough to beat.

Results at home have also improved as the hosts have won their last 3 home matches on the trot on home turf at their Dick’s Sporting Goods Park.

A home record of 3-2-4 18/20 gives them a fighting chance against Los Angeles, and they’ve lost by 2 goals or more in just 1 of their 9 home matches to date.

Los Angeles Prediction – Can Los Angeles extend lead at top of Conference?

Los Angeles sit proudly at the top of the Western Conference with a 6 point cushion ahead of 2nd placed rivals, LA Galaxy, prior to their trip to Colorado on Friday night.

The visitors have lost just once throughout this MLS season to date, which was a 1-0 loss away at Vancouver Whitecaps back in mid-April.

However, since then, Los Angeles have strung together an impressive 8-match sequence without defeat which has helped them maintain their lead at the top of the Western Conference.

Los Angeles certainly seem to be the team to beat on the MLS circuit as they’ve lost just 1 of their last 16 matches overall, and they look set for further success this season.

Just 1 defeat out of their last 8 away matches is also a steady run of results for the visitors who possess an away record of 4-3-1 19/7.

Los Angeles have won by 2 goals or more in just 3 of these last 8 matches though, and they could find Colorado Rapids to be a more stubborn customer this time around.


Key-Facts – Colorado Rapids v Los Angeles

  • Colorado Rapids have put together a promising 6-match unbeaten sequence
  • Colorado Rapids have lost by 2 goals or more in just 1 of their 9 home matches
  • Los Angeles have won by 2 goals or more in just 3 of these last 8 away matches


Betting Tips Verdict

Colorado Rapids’ recent resurgence will be tested by Los Angeles but I fancy the hosts to stay close to the visitors in this clash.
