I’m hoping for an upset tonight against FC Dallas in the 5th round of the US Open Cup but let’s be honest, it’s not gonna happen. Unless Pablo transforms himself in Pep Guardiola, or Antonio Conte, the Rapids will likely end their US Open Cup run in the same fashion as last year and to the same team. Match can be watched online at ussoccer.com, kickoff 6pm(MT). I think we can expect Pablo to rest most of the bigger names tonight against FC Dallas ahead of this weekend’s league matchup with the Houston Dynamo on Saturday. Gashi now back from injury may see the pitch some tonight.
The U23s match tonight at DSGP couldn’t come at worse time (seriously no pun intended) with kickoff half an hour before the Rapids kickoff with FC Dallas at 6pm.
