Colorado Rapids - Seattle Sounders
Colorado Rapids are favorites in the match against Seattle Sounders, so I think they will win. There are three main reasons for my pick. The home advantage is one of the reasons, but there are more. Colorado are in solid form. They beat New York Red Bulls with 2:0 in the last round. Even more, the victory was obtained away from home. Jonathan Lewis have scored both goals and his confidence is higher. This is very important as Kei Kamara is on international duty.
Seattle Sounders are also in solid form. They beat Los Angeles Galaxy with 4:3 in the last round. However, Seattle have lot of unavailable players for this match. Will Bruin and Victor Rodriguez are sidelined through injury, while no less than 9 players are on international duty - Jordy Delem, Jordan Morris, Cristian Roldan, Xavier Arreaga, Brad Smith, Joevin Jones, Nouhou Tolo, Raul Ruidiaz, and Gustav Svensson. It is clear the guests are very handicapped and I think they will lose the match.
