Colorado Rapids and Austin FC will battle for three points in the Western Conference of the MLS on Wednesday.

The hosts come into the game on the back of a goalless draw against Toronto FC on the same ground on Saturday.

Austin FC secured a morale-boosting 2-0 home win over LA Galaxy a day later. Moussa Djitte and Orrin Gaines II scored second-half goals to power the Texas outfit to all three points.

Last game of the homestand is tomorrow, let's finish it off in the win column 💪

Despite the win, Austin remain rooted to the bottom of the Western Conference table having garnered 22 points from 26 matches. Colorado Rapids sit in third place with 45 points and are three points behind table-toppers Seattle Sounders.

Colorado Rapids vs Austin FC Head-to-Head

This will be only the third meeting between the two sides and they each have a victory apiece.

Their most recent clash came in August when a lone strike by Andre Shinyashiki in the 29th minute gave the Rapids a 1-0 away victory.

The hosts have been consistent and are currently on an 11-game unbeaten run. They will, however, be eager to get back to winning ways, having drawn each of their last four matches.

Austin FC got back to winning ways against the Galaxy after losing five consecutive matches.
