Game presented by Allianz Life
After a tightly contested 1-1 draw on Sunday against Seattle, the Loons return to the Midway for a midweek game against the Colorado Rapids. Currently, Colorado is struggling to find their footing and has not won a game since they faced FC Dallas at home on July 8. The Rapids are sitting at the bottom of the Western Conference and need to string some results together to have any hope of seeing the postseason. Despite their opponent's recent struggles, the Loons will need to stay focused to make sure Wednesday's match goes their way. Colorado have time on their side and have not played since last Wednesday, while the Loons have a stacked week with three games in seven days. With nearly every game now looking like a must-win for the Rapids, they are sure to come to Allianz Field with a point to prove. Get your tickets today at SeatGeek.com to see which side takes home three points in person. Can't make it to the Midway? No problem. You can stream the game for FREE on Apple TV or listen in on 1500 ESPN.
