Our prediction for this MLS match:
Colorado Rapids welcome Minnesota United to their Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in a highly-anticipated MLS game. Colorado quickly bounced back from a 2-1 loss to Seattle, with the team impressing up front in a thrilling 5-4 win over New York Red Bulls. The Rapids are likely to stick to their attacking style of play, and we predict that they are going to find the net in Sunday’s clash.
The Loons, on the other hand, played out an entertaining 4-4 draw with Portland Timbers at the weekend, and given their attacking potential, both teams to score betting option should be considered. The likes of Hayes, Trapp, Dotson, Metanire, and Weah should miss out with injuries for the away team, while the hosts will be without Price, Larraz, Keita, and Galvan in Sunday’s game. In their last meeting in the MLS Minnesota United defeated Colorado Rapids 3-1.
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.
Highlighted Team (Minnesota United):
Based in the Minneapolis-Saint Paul area, Minnesota United are a professional soccer club that will compete in the Western Conference in the Major League Soccer from 2017. The Loons will make their MLS debut against Portland Timbers on March 4, 2017 and, no doubt, they have big ambitions for the forthcoming season.
Minnesota United are the sixth team to join MLS from a lower division and they will welcome their rivals at TCF Bank Stadium. The capacity of the stadium is 52.525 and it was opened in September, 2009. Bill McGuire is the club’s owner and he is on a quest to turn Minnesota United into a top-table side in the Western Conference.
Adrian Heath will be in charge of the club in the 2017 season and it has to be noted that the English tactician used to train the likes of Manchester City, Everton, Aston Villa and Espanyol in the past. You should know that the club was founded on March 25, 2015.
