COLORADO RAPIDS vs. NEW YORK RED BULLS
DICK’S SPORTING GOODS PARK, Commerce City, Colorado

Teams heading in opposite directions in recent weeks meet in an interconference matchup when the Colorado Rapids play host to the New York Red Bulls on Saturday evening at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park. The Rapids have won three times in their last five games, featuring the league’s top defense after their 2-1 win on the road at midweek against Sporting Kansas City. The Red Bulls have lost three successive matches, now more than 4-1/2 hours since scoring their last goal following a 2-0 defeat at the San Jose Earthquakes, also at midweek.

  • The Rapids have allowed just three goals in their five games this season, following their 1-0 defeat at Real Salt Lake over the weekend – tied for the fewest in MLS this season (also: Sporting KC). The Rapids have also scored just three goals this season, tied for the fewest in the league (also: Columbus Crew SC).
  • The Red Bulls were shut out for a fourth time in five games in their 2-0 home loss to Sporting KC at the weekend. The Red Bulls were shut out twice in 34 games on their way to the Supporters’ Shield in 2015.
  • The teams have played to draws each of the last two seasons in their only meetings, both coming at Red Bull Arena. The Rapids won 2-0 in the last meeting at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park, on July 4, 2013. The last Red Bulls victory in the series came in 2012, a 4-1 at Red Bull Arena.
  • The Red Bulls haven’t won in Colorado since 2007. The Rapids have won four of the five home meetings since, with one draw.
  • The Rapids have never won at Red Bull Arena. Their last away win in the series came in 2009, a 3-2 victory at Giants Stadium; the Red Bulls have won two of the five meetings at home since, with three draws.
