Columbus Crew vs Colorado Rapids Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Columbus Crew were unable to make the most of a strong opening, as the club’s recent disappointing run reared its ugly head against Portland Timbers in the midweek action. However, the Crew will be quite confident ahead of the home match with Colorado Rapids – a team that has lost four on the bounce. The Rapids have been struggling from the word go, but there was a brief spell in the sunshine for the team. Anthony Hudson has been unable to latch onto that form. Even though the Rapids have fared reasonably well at the MAPFRE Stadium, recent form makes me go with a win for Columbus Crew at half-time and full-time.

The Rapids are without a league goal for more than a month, as they last scored against LA Galaxy back in the middle of August. Columbus Crew’s defensive line was consistently broken by Portland on the channels but the Rapids are not in a position to do the same. I would opt for a clean sheet for the hosts.

Columbus Crew win at half-time and full-time – 4/5
