Colorado Rapids vs Montreal Impact
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 4 August 2019
Kick-off at 2:00 UK/ 3:00 CET
Venue: Dick’s Sporting Goods Park (Commerce City, Colorado).
Colorado Rapids are the team with the worst record in the West. But, the truth is, they are putting a solid fight every week. In fact, last week’s 3-1 defeat at the hands of an in-form San Jose Earthquakes team was the first loss with two goals margin in last fourteen games. They have improved so much since Conor Casey took over in May.
Montreal Impact ended their bad league run with an emphatic win Eastern Conference leaders, Philadelphia Union. With 33pts to their name, they are sitting on 6th position, six points behind Union and one point in front of 8th placed Toronto FC. Number of teams around them have a game in hand, which means Montreal needs a good run to keep their Play-Off ticket.

Colorado Rapids vs Montreal Impact: Prediction
Rapids are very capable of scoring at home, averaging 1.75 goals per game, letting 2, 75% of their home matches went over 2.5 goals. That stat-pack, combined with their form (1W, 2D, 3L in last six games, with 8:11 GD) and H2H record makes me feel good about my picks.
After taking down the Eastern Conference leaders, they surely fancy their chances against Rapids. Montreal did everything right last week, and they want to build on that performance. Impact are scoring 1.31 goals per game as guests, allowing almost two.
