Colorado ended an unbeaten run of 12 matches in the last match against Seattle Sounders away, were in 61st minute, where defender Esteves (8/0) received a red card, but they won an appeal against the ban. They are third on the table in Western Conference, won both home previous meetings against Minnesota this season, and suffered only another defeat away since the fifth of July. Minnesota United has only two wins in the last 6 matches, and today they will miss five players who have national team duties. These players are Metanire (24/0), Boxall (19/0), Lod (17/7 top scorer), Raitala (9/0), St.Clair (4/0), while Gregus (14/0), and McMaster (7/0) are doubtful. I expect Colorado Rapids to use these problems and won at least a point.
