Our prediction for this MLS match:
Colorado Rapids play host to Austin at their Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in what is expected to be an interesting MLS game. Colorado failed to win the previous three league fixtures, but the bookies still see them as favourites to pick up all three points from Tuesday’s game. The likes of Oliver Larraz, Aboubacar Keita, and Braian Galvan remain in the recovery room, but there are no suspended players in the home team. Austin, on the other hand, made a promising start to the season, with the team sitting in second place in the standings ahead of the trip to Colorado. Josh Wolff’s troops proved their worth in a hard-fought 1-0 win over Charlotte, and they are surely capable of making life difficult for Colorado Rapids. Taking everything into account, the share of spoils is on the horizon. Jhojan Valencia and Freddy Kleemann should be the only absentees in the away team.
Highlighted Player (Diego Rubio):
Diego Rubio is a Chilean attacker who signed his first professional deal with Colo-Colo. Rubio, though, made only eight league appearances (scoring three goals) for the Chilean outfit and in 2011 he moved to Europe, signing a deal with Primeira Liga team Sporting Lisbon. After playing only 11 league matches for the Lions, the 179-cm tall striker joined Spanish club Valladolid at the age of 22.
It has to be noted that during his spell with Sporting Lisbon he was loaned to the likes of Pandurii Targu Kiu and Sandnes Ulf. On September 1, 2016 Diego Rubio signed a permanent teal with Sporting Kansas City and he has been playing for the MLS club ever since.
Rubio was born on May 15, 1993 in Santiago, the capital of Chile, and he made his debut for the Chilean national football team in June, 2011 against Paraguay. His contract with Sporting Kansas City expires on June 30, 2017.
