Toronto FC will host the Colorado Rapids on Wednesday for a mid-week game. Colorado will be seeking their first win ever at BMO field, and they'll need that three points badly.
We're not exactly into 'must win' game territory yet, but if the Colorado Rapids continue to drop points in July the playoffs might be a far cry. It might not be smart to call their game against Toronto FC on Wednesday a 'must win' game anyway, because they'll be playing it in a stadium that they've never won at.
Colorado has never gotten more than a point out of BMO Field since Toronto joined the league, which won't inspire much confidence in a team that has dropped two straight very winnable games against Vancouver and Dallas.
Toronto will be missing their leading scorer, as Danny Koevermans was announced on Monday to have a torn ACL after landing awkwardly on his knee in a game against New England. The Reds were genuinely awful earlier in the year, starting the season off with the worst starting record in MLS history, the Rapids will be hoping that despite their recent boost in form they'll fall back to that level of 'worst team in the world' at least for one game. Colorado will take what they can get at this point.
The game will be at BMO Field at 5:00 p.m. Mountain Time.
