Colorado Rapids vs Columbus Crew Predictions and Match Preview

Colorado Rapids vs Columbus Crew
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 26th May 2019
Kick-off at 02.00 UK/ 03.00 CET
Venue: Dick’s Sporting Goods Park (Commerce City).

The Rapids are easily the worst team in the whole of MLS. Of the 24 squads in contention, they remain the only one to yet reach double digits in points. So far the team has posted just five points against their name. They have also conceded the most number of goals in the West.

Columbus too is one of the worst in the MLS. Especially considering their away status for this tie, where they have been at their weakest, the team is massively on the back-foot. The team lost five of their only six road games this season in the MLS, and their only saving grace this weekend might be the fact that their opponents are the worst in the competition.

Colorado Rapids vs Columbus Crew Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Ten of the last twelve wins went to teams at home.

  • The last eight encounters at this venue returned six home wins and a draw.

Colorado Rapids vs Columbus Crew Prediction

The Crew lost their last five away ties in a row and was winless in 18 of their last 20 as well. They also lost seven of their last eight overall fixtures. Going on, 17 of the last 22 h2h wins went to teams at home, and importantly, at this venue, the last eight clashes returned six home wins and a draw.

As such, though the Rapids have posted such bad stats, due to the above-mentioned reasons, they are tipped to avoid a loss this Sunday.

Coming to goals, the Rapids have conceded the second-most number in the MLS, just one behind the worst return. They also conceded goals in 13 of their last 14 fixtures, and in 19 of their last 20 at home. The Crew, meanwhile, had their defense breached in their last eight fixtures on the trot, and in 17 of their last 19 on the road.

By all means, expect goals at either end of the pitch this Sunday.
