Colorado Rapids vs New York City Match Preview
New York City have just lost two games in a row for the first time this season, but are fancied to bounce back with a victory away to an improved Colorado Rapids side.
The team from the Big Apple suffered a shock home defeat to Portland Timbers and then were edged out 2-1 in the New York derby last weekend away to the Red Bulls.
Although they are now only just inside the Eastern Conference play-off zone, Dome Torrent’s side have three or four games in hand on all of the teams above them in the table and are still expected by the bookmakers to go deep into the post-season.
The same cannot be said for Colorado Rapids, however, because even though their results have been much better since interim manager Conor Casey took charge at the start of May, they have a long way to go if they are to force their way into the play-offs.
The Rapids were also beaten 3-0 by a very young Arsenal team on Monday, highlighting the gulf that still exists between top-level European football and the MLS.
We do not think New York City are certainties here by any means and a draw would be no surprise, but the visitors have been largely difficult to beat on their travels this year and are backed to return to winning ways.
