Draw or Colorado Rapids win

Colorado Rapids are the team on form after claiming three consecutive wins. Even though two of this would have been at home, the Rapids might play a style of football that would harm LAFC, who try to pass the ball and attack with numbers. LAFC have been found wanting in the last few matches and they are on a four-game winless streak. Even at home, this match may not go in favour of LAFC and the double chance is available at an excellent price.

Total goals under 2.5

LAFC have not been offensively great as the team has missed players like Carlos Vela. The Rapids have seen some good performances out of Diego Rubio, who has scored in the last two matches. The away attacking performances from Colorado Rapids might be muted compared to the home matches. The lack of goals from LAFC makes this game a likely candidate for a low scoring game.

Colorado Rapids to score under 1.5

The Rapids were able to win by the narrow goal against Vancouver Whitecaps for their only away goal of the season. The away games are not a strength of the team, who are likely to still attack in numbers to profit from LAFC’s defensive failings over the last few games. LAFC have not kept a clean sheet in four consecutive matches.

Los Angeles vs Colorado Rapids: Match Preview and Team News

Los Angeles

Los Angeles are sliding down the table to the point where they are now bottom. Bob Bradley urgently needs things to swing in his favour if the club are to climb back up the table. Los Angeles are looking very weak on the offence while still continuing to concede goals at the back. It is still widely expected that Carlos Vela will not be back in the squad for this game.

Colorado Rapids

The Rapids have a 1-3 record against Los Angeles but there is every opportunity for the team to rectify this record. Robin Fraser’s men come into this game with the opportunity to jump into the second spot by overtaking the likes of Sporting Kansas City and LA Galaxy. They have been in excellent form over the last few weeks. Braian Alejandro Galvan and Steve Beitashour are unavailable for the Rapids.
