While the attention of the football world is currently on Euro 2020 and Copa America, there are many looking ahead to the start of the new domestic season and what that’ll entail. However, as Europe looks ahead to an August start date, there are other parts of the globe already embroiled in a new league campaign – including the United States. Today, we’re going to take a look at what should be an intriguing Major League Soccer clash between Colorado Rapids and Seattle Sounders.

Colorado Rapids

Colorado haven’t always been enjoying the lofty heights of success in Major League Soccer on a consistent basis but when they hit their top form, they really know how to turn it on. At this moment in time they’ve got a really impressive attacking impetus that’s leading to them, essentially, scoring for fun. Whether or not it can take them into contendership for the MLS Cup remains to be seen, but this league is all about momentum.

Team News

Beitashour and Namli are both set to miss out due to unknown injuries, with Barrios hoping to get his career back on the right track with another start here. In addition to that, we’re expecting a strong push forward from Jack Price who is one of the team’s hidden gems this year.

Seattle Sounders

Seattle is one of the most notable franchises in the history of the MLS and that reputation isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Every single year they have to be looked upon as contenders because if not, they’ll sneak up on you without you even knowing it. The Sounder are currently unbeaten and they’re probably the best team in North America, which is why it’ll be so important for them to keep their focus heading into a busy period.

Team News

Seattle will miss winger Morris and defensive midfielder Delem with Frei still struggling for fitness due to a knee injury, ensuring there will be a few changes made by the Sounders in a game that could quite easily define their season.

Factors to Consider

  • Seattle are in 1st place in the Western Conference whereas Colorado are in 4th.
  • Colorado have won four and lost two of their last six games.
  • Seattle have won three and drawn three of their last six games.
  • Colorado have scored 13 goals and conceded eight in their last six games.
  • Seattle have scored nine goals and conceded five in their last six games.

Conclusion

The one thing we love about Seattle is the energy they bring to just about every game, regardless of whether or not they’re playing at home. Here, we think there’s a good chance they could succeed in pushing Colorado all the way, to the point where they wind up dominating the majority of the game. They’re better at the back, they’re unbeaten, and they don’t seem to let anyone get in their way – which is why we’re suggesting a 2-0 Sounders win.
