Best bookmaker betting odds:

It's no vacation for neither Dallas nor Colorado Rapids as both were in action only a few days ago. Expect some tired legs on the pitch and/or possibly some changes to the lineups.

It's quite the trip for Colorado Rapids when visiting Dallas as the cities are 1300 kilometers apart.

Colorado Rapids form and stats

As the visiting team in Major League Soccer matches, Colorado Rapids have produced an overall stat of 2-1-2 so far.

Colorado play their second away game in a row, but can be confident going into this one after the 5-0 victory visiting Real Salt Lake (placed 7th). A draw for Colorado Rapids before that, at their own venue hosting Houston Dynamo (1-1).

As you can tell from the results above, Colorado was very dominant against Real Salt Lake, winning the match with a scoreline that even the finest fortune teller couldn't predict. 5-0 (!) with D. Rubio (2), C. Bassett, S. Vines and B. Galván providing the goals.

The visitors will be packing their bags again in only three days as another away game awaits: The Major League Soccer trip to LA Galaxy.

Colorado Rapids have scored more than twice on average per away game (in the league), an impressive attacking display. They have 10 goals from 5 away matches. As opposed to that, Colorado have seen the ball go into their own net 7 times on the road.

Head 2 Head
