Philadelphia Union vs Colorado Rapids
Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 21st May 2017
Kick off at 00:00 UK/ 01:00 CET
Venue: Talen Energy Stadium.
Philadelphia Union will have a fantastic opportunity to maintain the impressive run and pick up their fourth straight victory this Saturday when they host the struggling Colorado Rapids at their Talen Energy Stadium.
The hosts have been rock-solid at the back having kept four consecutive clean sheets and they will come in the game in a much better mood than the visitors who failed to score a single goal in four of their last five MLS fixtures.
Jim Curtin’s side was off to a shaky start of the new campaign, but the team seems to have caught the right shape as they are unbeaten in last five matches.
Moreover, the Union were so impressive to win each of their last three league outings by at least two goals over the likes of New York RB, DC United and Houston Dynamo.
Charles Sapon is the man to look after as he notched as many as seven goals so far in the season. You can back the US striker to score anytime against the struggling defense of the Rapids’ at the odds of 6/4.
The visitors came second in the overall standings at the end of the last season, but they are off to a horrendous start of the new campaign and they will need a serious turnaround in form if they want to clinch the playoffs spots in this term.
Pablo Mastroeni could have seen a glimpse of hope when Colorado drubbed San Jose Earthquakes 3-0 on the home pitch two weeks ago, but the team quickly returned to the old habits last Thursday when they lost 3-0 to Chicago Fire on the road.

Phila only managed to grab a single win in nine encounters with Colorado, but the good news for Curtin and his men is that they are unbeaten in last four clashes with the Rapids.
