Colorado Rapids vs Seattle Sounders FC
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 8 September 2019
Kick-off at 02:00 UK/ 03:00 CET
Venue: Dick’s Sporting Goods Park (Commerce City).
The Sounders are leading the rest of the squads in the West, and is bested only by LA. While the top-most position is definitely out of bounds for them, the players would be particular to keep in possession the runner-up spot. At present, they are in line to do the needful about that objective – considering their back-to-back wins against the Portland Timbers and Los Angeles Galaxy.
And on top of that, they are locking horns with one of the worst in the West, the Rapids. Colorado has conceded the most number of goals in the conference, and they still have extra games to take part in. They have repeated the feat in home ties as well, with 28 goals let in. The next worst is just 20 by Vancouver.

Colorado Rapids vs Seattle Sounders FC Prediction
H2h clashes firmly put Seattle in the driver’s seat. They have won the last seven such encounters in a row and conceded just two goals from the previous six. Also, they managed to score twice or more in the previous five such meetings and at this venue, the guests won eight of the last ten face-to-face fixtures.
Moreover, current form too points towards the visitors as the favorites. While they are placed second in the table, their opponents are struggling to shed off their tag as the second-worst in the conference. As such, the Sounders should avoid a loss this Sunday.
Coming to goals though, the Rapids have found the back of the net in 29 of their former 34 overall games, and in 16 of their former 17 at home. Their counterparts meanwhile, failed to keep a clean sheet in 16 of their last 17 overall ties, and in eight of the prior nine on the road.
Consequentially, the BTTS has a lot of potential for the day.
