Los Angeles Galaxy travel to Denver, as they face the Colorado Rapids on Saturday night.

The Rapids have had their last three MLS games postponed, after an outbreak of COVID-19 within their squad, so they will be hoping that with no further problems develop, so that they can take the field for this game.

LA Galaxy are without a win in six, and have lost all their last five games, with the latest being a massive 6-3 home loss to the Portland Timbers.

This is a hard game to predict. The outbreak of the disease within the Rapids' squad means that it is now hard to say how they will react to their first competitive game in more than two weeks.

The Galaxy are in horrendous form, and are now beginning to leak goals frequently as well.

We are going for a score-draw in this game.
