Minnesota United vs Colorado Rapids
Major League Soccer
Date: Saturday, 13th October 2018
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: TCF Bank Stadium (Minneapolis).
Minnesota United just missed out on a spot in the playoffs in a heartbreaking loss to Philadelphia. As the season comes to an end, the only other that would give some semblance of happiness to the fans is a home win.
Being pitted against Colorado Rapids is the perfect recipe to deliver the much-needed win for the fans. The visiting side comes into this match with seven losses in a row. They have been playing hopelessly ever since they were mathematically eliminated from the race to the playoffs.
Minnesota has a very satisfactory record at home and it is reason for the home fans to cheer up. Five wins in last six matches and 16 goals scored is an exemplary record when recent home games are considered.
In this Western Conference tie, the home side should comfortably come away with a win. Colorado Rapids with just one goal in their last seven matches would not be posing too many troubles to the Minnesota defence.
Minnesota United vs Colorado Rapids Head-to-head
- Colorado Rapids has lost their last seven matches in a row.

- The last match at this stadium between these two sides ended with a win to Minnesota.
Minnesota United vs Colorado Rapids Prediction
Colorado with their terrible away form is a huge underdog in this match. With nothing left to play for and in front of hostile Minnesota fans, they will not be expected to perform well.
Minnesota lost the chance to take part in the playoffs but still, they are a force to be reckoned with at home. In their last six home matches, Minnesota has five wins and they have scored a combined 16 goals.
In their last match at Minnesota’s home, the home side emerged victorious.
Minnesota will create havoc for the Colorado defence with constant through ball attacks and Colorado’s inability of dealing with them will probably be their undoing.
