It’s a Western Conference showdown on Wednesday night to kick off the MLS week. The upset minded Colorado Rapids make the trip to Portland to take on the Timbers.
This is the second meeting of the year between the two teams. In the first game Colorado won by a final score of 2-1.
The Colorado Rapids season has been filled with nothing but disappointments this season. They come into this game with six wins 13 losses and four draws which gives them 22 points and ties them for last place in the Western Conference standings.
The biggest issue the Rapids have had all season has been scoring goals. In four of their last five games they have scored one goal or less, and one goal isn’t going to be enough to win this game against the Portland Timbers.
To win this game they are going to need to get good goal tending which usually isn’t a problem, but they also need to get a goal or two early.
They can’t play in their defensive formation if they want to pull out a win. That might be enough to pull out a draw, but it won’t be enough to win this game.
On the other side of this match up is the Portland Timbers who have been very really inconsistent this year, but still come into this game in great shape for the playoffs.
They currently have 10 wins, nine draws and seven losses which gives them 37 points and ties them for third place in the Western Conference.
They come into this game with a lot of confidence though. In their last game they were able to beat the New York Red Bulls by a final score of 2-0.
To win this game the Timbers just need to play their game. They are the better team in this match up, and as long as they don’t make some stupid mistakes they should come out ahead in this game.
Free Colorado Rapids vs Portland Timbers MLS Prediction:
There is no question who is the better team in this game, and the Timbers will show it early on.
