Colorado Rapids vs Minnesota United
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 9th June 2019
Kick-off at 02.00 UK/ 03.00 CET
Venue: Dick’s Sporting Goods Park (Commerce City).
Colorado has been finding life tough in MLS. They are placed at the extreme bottom in the Western Conference and have lost nine of their twelve matches so far. It must be noted though, that all of their three wins so far in the competition came in the short span of last four match-days.
The last day the Rapids rallied to record a win at home over Cincinnati after the guests gave a scare by equalizing in the 72nd minute. The home team hit back one minute later and took back the lead. They added one more in the 82nd minute to complete the 3-1 win.
Minnesota, on the other hand, despite their comparatively far better position to that of Colorado in the league, lost their last two fixtures. They conceded three goals against Philadelphia at home, and in the just previous one, once again conceded three, against Atlanta.
The fact that these two are some of the best teams in MLS might have some reason for the losses. But still, Minnesota has not yet recovered from these back-to-back huge fails.

Colorado Rapids vs Minnesota United Prediction
Colorado may be at the bottom of the table, but their current form does not do justice to their position. They are unbeaten in their last four games and won three of them as well. The team also scored three or more goals in two of their last three match-ups.
Going on, the team has recorded two or more goals in six of their last ten games, and at home, they won the last two ties, and importantly, is on nine-game scoring streak, and registered two or more goals in the last five in a row, and in seven of the last nine.
Minnesota, on the other hand, lost three of their last four clashes and was winless in ten of their last fourteen. They also lost their last three road trips, and five of the last six as well. If the form is any indication, count on the hosts to avoid a loss at any cost.
In regards to goals, Colorado conceded in their last 15 home ties in a row, and in 22 of their last 23 as well. Their last clean sheet at home came almost a year back. Despite their improvement in form, they still lack in defense. By all means, expect both teams to get on the scorecard.
