Looking to continue their impressive rise up the Western Conference, LA Galaxy will travel to Dick’s Sporting Goods Park when they face off against a Colorado Rapids side involved in a battle at the other end of the table.
Starting with Sundays hosts, after only securing a 10th place finish last season, one place above their opponents, Colorado have endured another incredibly difficult year in the Western Conference. After 21 MLS games, The Rapids have won just four, drawing five and losing 12, scoring 25 and conceding 36 in return, they now hold the second worst attacking stats. With a points tally of 17, Colorado currently sit second from bottom once again and are already 14 points adrift of the playoff places. As for their recent form, they have now managed to win just two of their last 16 MLS appearances, losing 11 and drawing three. With just one domestic home win since the start of April, we’re backing another difficult afternoon for The Rapids.
As for LA Galaxy, although it has been a difficult 18 months for the visitors that saw them finish bottom last season, The Whites have begun to climb up the Western Conference and they’re planning a late push for the title. After 22 MLS games this season, Galaxy have won 10, drawn five and lost seven, scoring 43 and conceding 36 in return, they now hold the second best-attacking stats in the division. Now winning four of their last five, The Whites currently hold a four-point buffer over slipping out of the playoffs. With striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic scoring a hat-trick last time out, Galaxy have scored 16 in the last five and will travel to Colorado filled with confidence.
