Colorado Rapids vs Arsenal
International – Club Friendlies
Date: Tuesday, 16 July 2019
Kick-off at 2:00 UK/ 3:00 CET
Venue: DSG Park.
The first season for the Gunners with new manager Unai Emery at the helm ended in bittersweet fashion. They had begun emphatically, with a long winning run, but later they regressed to the mean and had to deal with intense completion from fellow Premier League clubs.
Still, they gave a brave run to make it to the final of the Europa League, only to lose to Chelsea and missed out on a spot in the Champions League by a single point. This time around, they are determined to deliver the fans a more worthy campaign, worthy of their stature in England.
Opponents Colorado should not raise many challenges, considering they are amongst the weakest in their respective competition in the MLS. Similar to last season, they are right at the bottom of the table in the Western Conference.
They have also conceded the most number of goals so far there, while only Cincinnati has let in more than them in the whole of Major League Soccer.

Colorado Rapids vs Arsenal Prediction
The sheer talent that the Gunners have in comparison to their opposite number would be enough to deliver a massive win. The visitors are one of the best clubs in England, and leagues apart in quality to the Rapids.
The Premier League is widely touted to be the best and the toughest football competition in the world, while, the MLS, by virtue of not being in Europe, cannot be considered among the elite in the business.
On top of that, the Rapids are one of the worst in the MLS, and the only positive thing they have got going for this game would be their home advantage, which might not be that big of a problem for the English.
By all means, await a big win for the visiting contingent.
