New England Revolution vs Colorado Rapids
USA – MLS
Date: Saturday, 10 March 2018
Kick-Off at 18:30 UK
Venue: Gillette Stadium (Foxborough).
New England Revolution and Colorado Rapids are going to face each other in the 2nd round of the USA MLS. The hosts are looking for the first win of the season, while this will be the first game in this campaign for the away side.
Home side finished their last season in the regular stage by being one place and five points below the playoffs zone. Although they had a good finish of the season, it wasn’t enough to go past New York red Bulls and try to go as far as possible in the battle for the title. Brad Friedel is their most popular name and he’s been taken a role of the head coach. In the first round on the 2018 season, they have been easily beaten by Philadelphia Union. It seems that they have an average squad and they should need to put much effort to secure their place in the playoffs this season.
Colorado Rapids were the second-worst side in the Western Conference last season and has an ultimately disappointing season. They were especially bad when playing away from home where they picked up only one win and managed to remain undefeated just two more times. They have a modest squad for this season with Stefan Aigner projected to be the leader of this team. This is going to be their first match of the season and we’ll see how much they can do against New England Revolution.

New England Revolution vs Colorado Rapids: Prediction
Home side should be capable enough to book their first win of the season, especially since the visitors are very bad when playing away from home. This one could also stay under 2.5 margin.
