LA Galaxy vs Colorado Rapids Match Preview
Colorado Rapids are probably not as bad a team as their woeful 2019 record suggests – and they could start reversing their fortunes against an out-of-form LA Galaxy side.
The Denver club have collected a measly two points from a possible 33 so far this season, still without a win and well adrift of all their MLS rivals.
But six of the Rapids’ nine defeats have been by a solitary goal. They have no problem finding the net, they just cannot keep goals out and that has yet to change since their English manager, Anthony Hudson, was replaced on an interim basis by Conor Casey on May 1.
However, this fixture presents Colorado with an opportunity to increase their meagre points tally because the Galaxy are on a poor run themselves after three consecutive defeats, even with Zlatan Ibrahimovic playing every minute of those games.
The charismatic Swede failed to score in the latest two of those losses and manager Guillermo Barros Schelotto will have been disappointed at how tamely his side surrendered 2-0 at home to New York City last weekend.
You can be sure Colorado will deploy an attacking approach here because that is what they do, and it may just earn them a reward in the form of their third point of the season.
