Austin team news and form: Austin need to bounce back quickly

Cristian Arango ran coach Josh Wolff’s Austin ragged in last week’s match at America First Field. The result on the scoreboard after 90 minutes of play was 5-1 in favor of the home team, with Arango scoring a lovely hattrick for his team, which is another plus in favor of our Colorado Rapids vs Austin predictions.

Player to watch: Sebastian Driussi

As previously stated in our Colorado Rapids vs Ausitn prediction, Sebastian Driussi is the top finisher for the visitors. He has five goals and two assists since the start of the campaign, so we can definitely say he’s no one-trick pony!

Driussi slacking in the goalscoring race

The 2022 Major League Soccer top goalscorer didn’t really impress in 2023. With five goals in 2024, he’s miles away from the top of the goalscoring charts this year as well. Driussi does have admirable qualities, so we expect to see a sturdy display from him in the match against the Rapids.
