On Monday, COLO and Caps were held to a 1-1 draw at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park. As the table looks today, COLO are currently 3rd with 44 points from 34 matches, while Caps sit in 9th, with 30 points from 34.

COLO started strongly in the first half, with Wilson finding the net in the 28th minute. However, their celebrations were kept brief, as Brian White equalised for Caps just before half-time, to take a 1-1 lead into half time. The second 45 minutes ended with little further action at either end and goalless.

For COLO, Namli, Rubio and Shinyashiki, came on for Kaye, Jonathan Lewis and Barrios. Caps brought on Cavallini, Baldisimo, Jakob Nerwinski, Metcalfe and Owusu, to replace Caicedo, Bikel, Brian White, Brown and Dájome.

The referee booked Galván for COLO.

Caps and COLO will next play at home to FC Dallas and Toronto FC respectively.
