The Rapids just cant win at Rio Tinto.
The GOOD – The first half, both the start and the final minutes. Shots (14 to 11) and shots on target (6 to 4) were in favor of the Rapids.
The BAD – a depleted bench maybe forced Pablo’s decisions on substitutions, only making one, Badji on for Powers(78th), especially with an upcoming match mid week against Sporting KC.
Rapids lacked possession and did very little to dictate the pace of the game.
The first leg of the Rocky Mountain Cup goes to RSL.
The UGLY – MacMath’s blunder in net or should I say out of the net, leading to the RSL gifted goal by Plata. Sjoberg also gets some of the blame for the RSL goal.
The Rapids are 0-2-1 on the road, and as usual their road record is going to determine whether this team makes the playoffs this season. A road game at division leading Sporting KC coming up on Wednesday, this becomes a must win game for the Rapids.
Rapids through five games are 2-2-1 with 7 points, 6th place in the Western Division. Through the first 5 games of 2015, the Rapids were 1-1-3 with 6 points.
