Colorado Rapids vs FC Cincinnati
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 2nd June 2019
Kick-off at 01.30 UK/ 02.30 CET
Venue: Dick’s Sporting Goods Park (Commerce City).
This is a pretty special match, as the worst of the lot from both conferences lock horns, in a battle for supremacy. Both teams are placed at the bottom-most of their respective tables in the East and the West.
Colorado is the only side in the whole of MLS to not yet cross double digits in points and has conceded the most goals so far. On the other hand, Cincinnati has scored the least number of goals so far in the competition, and with their away status in this tie, might not be in a position to make a change to that fact.

Colorado Rapids vs FC Cincinnati Prediction
The most important thing to be noted in this game would be that both are the worst of their respective conferences, and whoever loses this tie will get the title of the ‘Worst of the MLS’. As such, we can expect both teams to try their level best on the pitch to avoid that distinction.
Considering the struggles of both, home advantage will play a great role in this tie. Also, Cincinnati lost seven of their last eight matches, and their last five in a row, on the road. The last match-day, they conceded five goals in an away game.
The Rapids meanwhile was unbeaten in their last three ties and won two of them as well. As such, expect them to avoid a loss at any cost.
Going on, the Rapids conceded two or more goals in 17 of their last 22 home ties, and keep note that without the home advantage, they are also almost as bad as their counterparts. There’s little chance that the hosts will keep a clean sheet on Sunday.
