Next Monday at 4:00am GMT, on matchday 34 of the Major League Soccer, we will see COLO play Caps at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park.

Monday’s clash at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park- sees ninth placed Caps, travel to third-placed COLO in the Major League Soccer.

Colorado Rapids go into this game with 43 points secured

A 3rd successive, disappointing result for COLO will not be acceptable for Robin Fraser’s squad. They will see this fixture as an opportunity to turn their form around after drawing 2-2 at Portland Timbers and 1-1 at LA Galaxy.

Having not lost in nine fixtures, COLO have steadily crept up the Major League Soccer Table. Their position is third in the League, and they have 43 points having won 12 matches, drawn seven meetings, and lost four meetings.

Caps travel to COLO, knowing that they have nothing to lose. The odds are not in their favour, as the home team has recorded six victories and four darts in the 11 home matches they’ve played so far this season.

Victory for Colorado Rapids would take their points tally to 46 so far this season.

Vancouver Whitecaps have 29 points to their name, going into this tie

It was a humbling defeat at the hands of Portland Timbers for Marc Dos Santos’s men in their last match, they will be hoping to get something out of this game for sure.

Slow and steady wins the race, Caps are showing that they know by avoiding defeat in 10 of their last 11 meetings. With 29 points, they are established in ninth in the League having won seven games, drawn eight matches, and lost eight meetings.

It must be a worrying prospect for Caps to go back on the road, with a bud run of away performances under their belt this season. So far they have only secured one win and six draws to the home team.

Winning this fixture will see Vancouver Whitecaps on 32 points.
