Colorado Rapids vs Los Angeles FC
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Saturday, 29 June 2019
Kick-off at 03:00 UK/ 04:00 CET
Venue: Dick’s Sporting Goods Park (Commerce City).
This match-up is between teams from extreme ends of the Western Conference table. Los Angeles reigns at the top with absolute dominance, while the Rapids are trying their best to carve themselves a more comfortable position.
One thing that begs attention though, is the fact that, despite their position, Colorado is unbeaten in their last five games, and is in line to come higher in league standings, provided they keep up this form.
The last day, they almost scored a win on the road over the Whitecaps, after racing to a two-goal lead by the 20th minute. But the hosts rallied to score two of their own, and thus either side settled for a point apiece.
Los Angeles seems to be cruising with no worries, and have posted a six-point lead at the top, even with a match in hand. They have posted the best stats in both goals scored, and goals conceded in the West.

Los Angeles is by a distance the best team in the Conference. They are at the top of the table and have left other teams in the dust, with minimal chances for them to catch up. They have scored the most number of goals, 39, while the next best is just 27. Also, they have let in just 13 goals so far, whereas the next best return is 19.
The team has lost just once and currently is on a four-match winning streak, and a ten-game unbeaten run. They also avoided losses in 19 of their last 20 attempts.
Meanwhile, Colorado may be going good right now, but keep in mind that at one point they had an eight-match losing run and an eleven-tie winless streak.
