Colorado Rapids vs Vancouver Whitecaps: Preview and Predictions

Colorado Rapids vs Vancouver Whitecaps
Major League Soccer
Date: Saturday, 2nd June 2018
Kick-Off at 02:00 UK / 03:00 CET
Venue: Dick’s Sporting Goods Park, Denver, Colorado.

Colorado Rapids were sliding down the MLS standings at an alarming rate of late as the dreadful run of six straight defeats brought them down to the very foot of the Western Conference ladder. The head coach Anthony Hudson thus might be counting his last days in Denver and he has absolutely no luxury of affording yet another failure on Friday evening when conference rivals Vancouver Whitecaps come to visit Dick’s Sporting Goods Park.

The Caps won’t come into this in particularly higher spirits after winning just one of last nine games in the Major League Soccer. They are currently on a sequence of four consecutive draws in spite of netting two or more goals in all of these ties. The Wels managers just can’t seem to be able to fix the obvious defensive holes as the Caps currently own the second weakest defensive record in the entire league with 27 goals conceded in 14 games so far.

Colorado Rapids vs Vancouver Whitecaps: Head-to-head

Colorado lead the head to head tie by two wins ahead of their 21st meeting with the Caps.

The Rapids were much more successful in the history of marches at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park where they won 7 and lost just 2 of 10 so far.

The Over 2-5 goals FT & BTTS option landed in three of last four head to head encounters.

Vancouver won two and drew one of last three outings against the Rapids.

Colorado Rapids vs Vancouver Whitecaps: Predictions

Both teams have been struggling badly to keep things quiet at the back recently and we expect the high-scoring H2H trend to be continued when they take on each other on Friday evening in Denver. The Rapids shipped as many as seven goals in last two league defeats to New York City and Portland Timbers, while their counterparts allowed seven in last three draws in MLS. Over 2.5 goals FT & BTTS is a must-take bet under these circumstances and you can back it at the 1.95 odds.

As for the outcome, we believe the time has come for Colorado to finally end the horrendous streak of results and return on the winning ways against the struggling opposition. After all, they won 7 of 10 home meetings with the Caps over the course of history. Moving forward, Vancouver have been dreadful travellers for a while at the start of the new season after losing three and drawing one of last four away games in the leagues.
