Toronto FC vs Colorado Rapids Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Toronto FC suffered another poor away result, as they drew 2-2 with New York City at the Yankee stadium. Manager Greg Vanney will be reasonably pleased with the team, as they managed to secure a point through a late penalty from Victor Vasquez. Ashtone Morgan had helped Toronto take the lead before David Villa and Maximiliano Moralez put the home team ahead. Colorado Rapids suffered a third defeat in five matches, as they lost 3-1 against Seattle Sounders. Goals from Clint Dempsey and Will Bruin put Seattle 2-0 up by the 30th minute, but Dominique Badji threatened a comeback with his 78th minute goal. Dempsey’s second of the evening sent Colorado to yet another loss. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Colorado Rapids are aiming to continue their recent run of form against Toronto after managing three wins in the last four meetings with this opponent. However, Toronto are supremely strong at home and have managed seven consecutive wins at the BMO Field. Recent home record against Colorado is also excellent with five wins in the last six. I would opt for a Toronto win.

Toronto have kept a clean sheet in four out of the last six home games, while Colorado Rapids have failed to score in four out of the last five away matches. I see excellent value in backing a Toronto clean sheet.

Toronto FC win – 4/9

Toronto FC Preview

Toronto were able to sustain a place at the top of the Eastern conference by virtue of Chicago Fire’s inability to get a win from their match. Toronto have clearly lost the aura of invincibility that seemed to exist a few weeks ago. A huge factor for the slide in form is the struggles on the road. Toronto have managed just one win in the last five away games, while the club continue to remain extremely strong at the BMO Field. Toronto are one of the highest scorers in the division with 36 goals. Only Atlanta United, New York City, and Chicago Fire have scored more goals than Toronto’s forward line-up led by Sebastian Giovinco, who is the top scorer for Toronto with nine league goals.

Toronto FC Team News

Nick Hagglund (ligament) and Steven Beitashour (pancreatitis) are the players unavailable for Toronto.

Colorado Rapids Preview

Colorado Rapids have suffered 11 defeats from the 18 league matches this season. It is a record that the club shares with Minnesota United, although Adrian Heath’s team have suffered these losses after playing 20 league matches. The Rapids have been the poorest scorers in the Western Conference with a return of just 19, while they have conceded 27. Colorado have the best defensive record amongst teams in the bottom half of the Western Conference table. Colorado Rapids are one of the four teams yet to win an away match this season.

Colorado Rapids Team News

Colorado Rapids will be without Bobby Burling (foot) due to injury.
