Colorado Rapids vs Houston Dynamo
Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 2nd July 2017
Kick off at 02:00 UK/ 03:00 CET
Venue: Dick’s Sporting Goods Park.
Colorado and Houston shifted roles from the last term of MLS when Dynamo ended at the rock bottom of the Western Conference standings, while the Rapids took the second position.
The situation is completely opposite after 17 rounds in the new season and it will be very interesting to see if the hosts will finally be able to end the disastrous run this Saturday.
Pablo Mastroeni saw a glimpse of hope at the start of June when his team clinched four consecutive wins in all competitions to announce the potential comeback after a horrendous kick off to the new campaign.
However, the promising run fell apart as the team suffered three consecutive losses in following fixtures.
The good news for Mastroeni is that Colorado play much better on the home pitch where they notched five straight victories to the slip up against LA Galaxy last Wednesday.
The visitors, on the other side, seem to be losing the touch with the leading teams on the West after a super strong start to the new season.
Dynamo took only a single win in last seven league fixtures and they are yet to celebrate their first victory away from home in the new season.
Colorado Rapids vs Houston Dynamo: Head to head
The clashes between these two teams usually offered plenty of goals as each of their last H2H encounters in MLS saw both sides on the scoresheet.
They have met each other in a pre-season friendly in late February when Dynamo claimed a 0-2 win.
Colorado Rapids vs Houston Dynamo: Prediction
The hosts will be super motivated to clinch three points and escape the rock bottom of the Western Conference standings.
We must see the value in the 19/20 odds offered on the Rapids to clinch the victory considering the awful form Houston showed on the road so far in the season.
