Seattle Sounders FC vs Colorado Rapids Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

Seattle Sounders kept hopes of finishing in the top two alive after a 4-0 win over FC Dallas at the CenturyLink Field. A first-half goal from Victor Rodriguez separated the two teams, but Seattle were able to post a big win through goals from Will Bruin (2) and Lamar Neagle in the second half. Colorado Rapids remain just above the bottom of the Western Conference after a 1-0 win over Real Salt Lake. Joshua Gatt scored after just three minutes on the clock and Colorado were able to weather a string of attacking displays from RSL to secure the victory. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Seattle Sounders have won the recent three games against Colorado Rapids after having previously suffered at the hands of this opponent. They come into this game after having won four out of the last six home matches. Seattle have suffered just one home defeat so far this season, while Colorado Rapids have only managed one away win throughout the campaign. Surprisingly, Colorado have been losing at half-time and full-time in four of the last six away games. I see value in going with a win for Seattle at half-time and full-time. The last two league matches at the CenturyLink Field have ended with a clean sheet for Seattle Sounders, while Colorado Rapids have failed to score in two out of the last four away games. Colorado are amongst the lowest scorers in the division and I would bet on a clean sheet for Seattle.

Seattle Sounders half-time/full-time win – 10/11

Seattle Sounders clean sheet – 5/6

Colorado Rapids saw over 1.5 goals in 9 out of their last 10 games played

Seattle Sounders FC Preview

Seattle Sounders still retain hope of finishing in the top two places after managing to match the result of Portland Timbers in the previous outing. Seattle Sounders are now level on points with Portland and have a slender one-point advantage over Sporting Kansas City. Brian Schmetzer could even see his team finish at the top of the Western Conference, as Vancouver Whitecaps are just two points ahead. The defending MLS Cup champions will consider themselves to be fortunate to be playing at home in the final game of the season. Clint Dempsey is the Seattle top scorer this season with 12 goals.

Seattle Sounders FC Team News

Jordan Morris (hamstring), Calum Mallace (thigh), Brad Evans (back), and Osvaldo Alonso (knee) are the players unavailable for Seattle Sounders due to injury.

Colorado Rapids Preview

The final game of the MLS 2017 regular-season will provide an opportunity for Colorado Rapids to stay above LA Galaxy, as the club have been able to maintain the one point advantage. Finishing above Galaxy and away from the bottom place will be seen as a success for the Rapids going into the new 2018 MLS season. Interim manager Steve Cooke is likely to be replaced by a permanent option and the priority for any manager would be to see the club start scoring more goals on a regular basis. The Rapids are the second lowest scorers in the division with only 31 scored in 33 games. Dominique Badji is the leading scorer with nine goals as he continues his ascent.

Colorado Rapids Team News

Jared Watts (shoulder), Mekeil Williams (ankle), and Mike Azira (ankle) are the players unavailable for Colorado Rapids.
