This Thursday sees COLO go head to head with Austin at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park – Kick-off 4:00am GMT.

Thirteenth placed Austin, are away to third placed COLO on Thursday.

With the Major League Soccer season well into its stride, Colorado Rapids have managed to gain 45 points

COLO have dropped four points in their last two matches – 0-0 at Toronto FC and 1-1 at Vancouver Whitecaps.

COLO are adept this season at avoiding defeat, be it a scrappy win or a frustrating draw. However, that is the kind of form that has taken them up the table to where the now sit. With third, they currently sit 45 points in the League having won 12 games, drawn nine matches, and lost four matches.

Playing at home, COLO have won six fixtures, drawn six meetings, and lost one game.

Colorado Rapids will have 48 points if they manage to secure a victory.

Austin’s campaign so far has seen them accrue 22 points this season

Austin will be keen to retain their winning form, having beaten LA Galaxy 2-0 in their last match.

Suffering 10 losses in 13 meetings is a terrible run of form for any club, Josh Wolff’s Austin will know this and will be hopeful of turning it around. They currently stand thirteenth in the League, with 22 points having won five matches, drawn four meetings, and lost 16 games.

With a poor record on the road, which amounts to two wins and two darts, it is hard to predict a positive outcome for Austin as they travel once more.

A victory for Austin would put them on 25 points.

Colorado Rapids v Austin – Head-to-Heads.

It’s unlikely that this game will result in a draw, or at least that is what the form book would tell us, COLO have played Austin two times in the past seasons, with both sides enjoying victory one victory times each. Also, Josh Wolff’s side are now un-beaten in one game against COLO. Their most recent encounter in this competition was August 2021, when Austin walked away as 0-1 winners.
