    The Rapids have scored in 27 consecutive home matches. At home, the Rapids are 2 wins and 4 draws in the last seven matches v Dallas.

    Rapids will definitely be without Acosta who is in Switzerland with the USMNT. Namli? If he is fit I expect he'll start with Bassett and Price in the midfield.

    Outside of Acosta I'll predict the Rapids starters are what they've been prior to the LAFC match.

    Following this match there isn't a home match till July 4 and only two matches in June.

    Barrios revenge game 2.0? Last time I said this it was 0-0 after 90.

    Well, Barrios scored his first goal last week, so now I think they keep on coming! I think he scores a brace in a rapids 3-1 win over Dallas

    During the regular season under Fraser, after a loss the Rapids are a bit of a rollercoaster with a 4W-4L-2D record in games immediately following a loss. Interestingly enough, if you compress that view to home games immediately following a loss, the Rapids have a cool 4W-0L-1D record at home under Fraser.

    I think this week we are on an upswing portion of this rollercoaster ride and pull out a big win.

    Acosta and Namli aren't available for this match. So, who becomes the starter in place of Acosta? (I am assuming that Bassett will start.) The choices would appear to be veterans Colin Warner and Nico Mezquida and newcomer Oliver Larraz. Mezquida has played the most minutes of the three this season.

    Wonder if Fraser will give Larraz a shot or does he play it safe.

    2-1 win, goals by Rubio and Bassett. This game will be tougher than it should be with Acosta's and Namli's absence but we're a better team than Dallas and we're at home. We'll get the 3 points but we won't feel comfortable about it until the final whistle.

    My sister and I are in PHX this weekend as my dad had some surgery the other day. He is doing well, so we are able sneak off tonight to watch the game. Anyone here from Phoenix area and have suggestions on a brewery, bar, or other fun establishment that would show the game?

    If not, streaming in my iPad is in order.

    Its been 13 years since I lived in the valley but the Skeptical Chymist in north Scottsdale was always friendly to soccer. Looking at their website looks like they're home to the Aston Villa supporters group and, good news for you, the Arizona chapter of the Seahawks booster club. :devilish:

    Decent break but poor first touch from Lewis, and then not much on the shot.

    The semi-matching uniforms (the same in everything but shade of blue) makes me think of an all-star game or a benefit match. Don't like it.

    I do like the idea of jerseys made from reclaimed materials, tho

    Mez makes his first real impact on the match by drawing a PK.
