Minnesota United vs Colorado Rapids Lineups & Team News

Minnesota United

Adrian Heath is a manager who has plenty of experience facing the Rapids under his belt. With nine victories, two draws, and eight matches lost, the 62-year-old coach will surely try to give his colleague a run for his money on the 31st of August when the two teams collide.

Predicted lineup – Clair (GK), Bristow, Tapias, Boxall, Taylor, Trapp, Dotson, Reynoso, Rosales, Hlongwane & Pukki

Colorado Rapids

Achieving only three victories in 24 Major League Soccer games is not something that can keep coach Robin Fraser employed much longer. And the manager knows the board demands results sooner rather than later. The Rapids conceded eight goals in the games against Toluca and Los Angeles, and it’s no wonder we pick the home team as the favorite to win in our Minnesota United vs Colorado Rapids predictions.

Predicted lineup – Ilic (GK), Wilson, Maxso, Abubakar, Ronan, Priso, Rosenberry, Gutman, Tavares, Rubio & Navarro

Player to Watch: Lalas Abubakar

Colorado Rapids are having a miserable season. That much is true. However, Lalas Abubakar has been the best player at coach Fraser’s disposal this season. The 28-year-old defender contributed a lot at the back but he’s also one of the key scorers on the team. Lalas Abubakar found the net on two occasions, which was enough for us to give him a shoutout in this Minnesota United vs Colorado Rapids prediction.
