Colorado Rapids vs Sporting Kansas City Prediction
The two sides have endured an almost identical run in the league so far, with one loss in their away game and a win at home apiece. They have both conceded three goals but the hosts have outscored the Wizards 3-2.
Two of the three meetings between the two sides ended in stalemates last season. They have played out four back-to-back draws at Saturday's venue. Given the form of both sides, a low-scoring draw seems to be the likely outcome here.
