COLORADO RAPIDS vs. LA GALAXY
DICK’S SPORTING GOODS PARK, Commerce City, Colo.
March 12, 2016 (WEEK 2, MLS Game #15)
7 PM ET (MLS LIVE)

The Colorado Rapids return home to kick off the 2016 campaign at Dick's Sporting Goods Park when they play host to the LA Galaxy on Saturday evening. The Rapids started off the new season with a defeat, falling 1-0 at the San Jose Earthquakes at Avaya Stadium. The Galaxy are on the road for the first time in league play this year, opening their new season with a 4-1 win against D.C. United at StubHub Center.

  • The Rapids opened their 2016 campaign with a 1-0 defeat at the San Jose Earthquakes. They last opened a season with a victory in 2012, a 2-0 win vs. Columbus; they had reached draws in season openers each of the last two years.
  • Making his return for the LA Galaxy, his first match with the club since 2013, Mike Magee scored a pair of goals to lead his once former and new team to a 4-1 victory against D.C. United at StubHub Center. They were Magee’s first goals in MLS play since Aug. 10, 2014, when he scored for the Chicago Fire vs. the Red Bulls.
  • The Galaxy have a four-game undefeated streak alive in the series. The teams reached a 1-1 draw May 2 at StubHub Center, then the Galaxy claimed a 3-1 victory Aug. 1 at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park.
  • The Galaxy have won the last two meetings in Commerce City after last year’s victory there, ending a two-game Rapids home winning streak in the series – their first home wins vs. LA since 2008.
