The Colorado Rapids and Minnesota United will face each other in Major League Soccer this week. The match will take place at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, Colorado and is slated to kick off at 2am UK time on Thursday.

Fraser’s side will head into the match against Minnesota United on the back of a 1-1 draw with the Seattle Sounders. It followed a 3-1 defeat to the Sporting Kansas City in Major League Soccer

Team News:

Defender Steven Beitashour is doubtful for the match with a muscle injury. Michael Barrios is likely to start.

Minnesota United

Minnesota United have not been in great form in Major League Soccer so far this season. They currently find themselves as low as sixth in the Major League Soccer Western Conference table with 15 points from 11 matches, as many as 11 points behind leaders, the Sporting Kansas City.

Adrian Heath’s side will head into the match against the Colorado Rapids on the back of a 2-2 draw with the San Jose Earthquakes. It followed a 1-0 win against the Portland Timbers.

Team News:

Ike Opara is still recovering from concussion, and Michael Boxall is a doubt.
