Colorado Rapids vs Portland Timbers
2018 Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 27th May 2018
Kick off at 02:00 UK/ 03:00 CET
Venue: Dicks Sporting Goods Park (Colorado).

The Rapids need to change their season around as they are bottom of the western conference after 10 games where they have won just 2 times. They come into this game on very poor form having lost their last 5 matches and fans and media alike believe that if they are going to start winning games it will start at home.

It’s true that both of the Rapids wins this season have come at home but recent home form has gone downhill where they have lost their last 2 games at home both by the same score line of 2-1.

Portland Timbers on the other hand are in superb form and come into this game having won 5 games in a row. They are in 3rd place in the western conference and are 7 points behind the league leaders Sporting Kansas City but they do have two games in hand. But most of their points have come at home and actually their away form is not good with just 1 win from 6 games played which should make this game interesting. The good news for Portland is that their one away win did come in their last game when they overcame San Jose Earthquakes 1-0.
