Rapids Vs. Earthquakes: Game Time, TV Schedule And More

The Colorado Rapids face the first place San Jose Earthquakes on the road on Saturday night.

The Colorado Rapids head on the road to face the San Jose Earthquakes at Buck Shaw Stadium in Santa Clara on Saturday night

Colorado is coming off a 1-1 draw with Chivas USA on Aug. 18 and will have their hands full against the first place Earthquakes. As good as their 14-6-5 and first place standing indicates, the Earthquakes are beatable. San Jose dropped their last match to the Montreal Impact 3-1 on the road.

Playoff hopes for Colorado are dim as the Rapids are currently 11 points behind the Vancouver Whitecaps for the fifth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference.

Here is the injury report for the match from the Colorado Rapids official website:

SAN JOSE EARTHQUAKES - OUT: MF Jean-Marc Alexandre (R knee MCL sprain); MF Joey Gjertsen (R knee surgery); DF Jason Hernandez (R hamstring strain); MF Shea Salinas (L hamstring strain); DF Tim Ward (L non-specific soft tissue injury); DOUBTFUL: MF Cesar Diaz Pizarro (R groin strain)

COLORADO RAPIDS - OUT: DF Anthony Wallace (L Achilles tear); MF Pablo Mastroeni (headaches); QUESTIONABLE: FW Edu (R foot contusion); FW Kamani Hill (L quad strain); PROBABLE: FW Omar Cummings (R ankle soreness)

The match is scheduled to start at 8:30 p.m. MT and will be televised live on Altitude. The match can also be heard on the radio at FM 93.7, AM 1510; FM 87.7.
