Colorado Rapids host Seattle Sounders in an MLS clash in Denver on Sunday evening, as the hosts get into the thick of things, as they play their remaining games of the season.

This is Colorado Rapids's third MLS match since their resumption after a months' break due to a COVID-19 outbreak in their squad.

In their last two games, they have lost 4-0 to Sporting Kansas City and 2-1 to Minnesota United.

This is the third of five games that Colorado Rapids play in 16 days, and the only one at home in that period.

Seattle Sounders are currently on top of the Western Conference standings, with the MLS recently deciding the table would be decided on the points-per-game basis.

They are fresh off a win in their last game, as they beat Vancouver Whitecaps 2-0.
