Colorado Rapids vs Atlanta United
Date: Saturday, 5 March 2022
Kick-off at 23:00 UK/ 00:00 CET
Venue: Dick’s Sporting Goods Park.

The Rapids were the best team in the Western Conference the last season, and understandably had secured the first position. They had scored goals at a consistent rate all through the campaign – and particularly at home.

However, they were eliminated in the very first game of the playoffs itself (Conference Semis), and this will surely be burning in the back of their minds. The team will be determined to make amends.

Meanwhile, Atlanta were one of the best in the East in 2021, and had made it to the First Round of the playoffs. Unluckily though, they had to bow out against eventual champions New York City.

As these two wounded squads take on each other this weekend, anticipate goals in plenty.
