Colorado Rapids vs New England Revolution
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Friday, 5 July 2019
Kick-off at 02:00 UK/ 03:00 CET
Venue: Dick’s Sporting Goods Park (Commerce City).
Both teams are in the bottom tier of their respective conferences but still boasts of an ongoing unbeaten run, spanning at least five games.
The Rapids have more to gain from this fixture, because of their home status, their current winning streak in front of the home crowd, and especially due to the Whitecaps, the team just above them being pitted against arguably the current best the MLS has to offer, Los Angeles FC.
Revolution too is in a similar spot, like Orlando, the squad just above them is taking on the topper of the Eastern Conference, Philadelphia.
New England has built a reasonable reservoir of confidence, as they inflicted a loss upon LA Galaxy just a few match-days back, which was a part of their unbeaten run. But the side definitely will have to improve their away form, as so far they could post just a single win on the road.
Colorado Rapids vs New England: Head-to-head (h2h)
- 11 of the last 17 matches had goals from both teams.
- The Rapids won two of the last three games.
- Eight of the last nine wins at this venue went to the hosts.
- 17 of the last 20 meetings at this stadium had the guests failing to keep a clean sheet.
Colorado Rapids vs New England: Prediction
The Rapids are on a period of rising after their dismal run. Currently, they are unbeaten in their last eight match-days, and five of these were wins.
The team also scored in 21 of their last 23 matches and is going through another unbeaten run at home spanning five fixtures. In addition, the team also managed to win four of these five.
Going on, Colorado scored in their last 12 home ties and did so twice or more in six of their last eight.
Meanwhile, New England may be on a cruise with good results, but most of them were at home. They have been struggling to perform on the road. Revolution could post just three wins from their last 28 away fixtures, and let in 20 goals from their last seven alone.
Finally, eight of the last nine h2h wins at this venue went to the hosts, and the visitors failed to keep a clean sheet in 17 of their last 20 h2h attempts at this stadium.
As things stand, expect the Rapids to post three points on the board in style.
