The eighth-place Rapids welcome seventh-place Chivas USA to town in a key Western Conference battle.
The Rapids find themselves one point behind Chivas in the Western Conference standings, so a win would be imperative if they want any shot of making a push for the playoffs. It's is a slim proposition as it is, especially due to the fact that they've lost nine out of their last 11 matches. The good news is that the Rapids have a plus-8 goal differential at home, compared with minus-10 on the road. Recent history is on Colorado's side as well, as they defeated Chivas 4-0 in the last meeting, which took place April 28 in Commerce City, Colo.
