The Sounders face the Rapids in their home turf at Denver’s Dick’s Sporting Goods Park on the 28 of July. Catch real time updates on your favorite Major League Soccer 2012 Match.
Colorado Rapids Preview
Being at number 7 in the Western Conference is not such a bad position for the Colorado Rapids after all, they do rank in fourth place with the highest goals made at 27 goals this season so far, San Jose Earthquakes of course are at number one with a whopping 44 goals. The Rapids have a total of 22 points this season with an average of 1.05 points per game at seven wins, eight defeats, and five draws.
While they are satisfactory with their offensive side, they fall pretty short in their defense. The Colorado Rapids have a total of 30 goals made by the opposing teams so far this season and the Seattle Sounders, a team that has a good overall attack formation with 1.55 points per game can very well exploit that if the Rapids give them an opening.
Seattle Sounders Preview
Being in the top five of the Western Conference is a very good place to be in. The Seattle Sounders are currently, to be more precise, ranked at number 4 with just 1 point above the L.A. Galaxy. Their defense is pretty satisfactory as well, at least much better than the opposing team.
The Sounders met up with the Rapids earlier this month at the CenturyLink Field. Seattle took the game with a 2-1 victory which also showcased the return of Steve Zakuani.
Colorado Rapids vs Seattle Sounders Predictions: Seattle Sounders 2-1
Seattle has a better record in defense in comparison with Colorado. Seattle also has a stronger attack formation, one play in particular was during the July 7 face off between the two teams. What I believe will happen is that the Sounders will try to exploit the Rapids’ weaker defensive side at the onset of the match.
