MLS Preview: Colorado Rapids (0-0-0) at Seattle Sounders FC (0-0-0)

The Sounders have won 15 of their 18 MLS home games against Colorado (D1, L2, playoffs included), including six consecutive victories. The highest win percentage in MLS history among matches played at least ten times is Seattle’s.833 win percentage against Colorado at home.

In 2022, the Sounders failed to make the playoffs for the first time in their history. Last year, Seattle set club records for most losses (17, compared to a previous record of 14 in 2016) and fewest points (41, compared to a previous record of 49 in 2009).

Last season, the Rapids only won one of their 19 road matches in all competitions, a 5-4 victory over the Red Bulls in New York at the beginning of August (D5 L13). Last year, Colorado tied San Jose for the worst road record in MLS with eight points and 42 goals conceded.

Nicolas Lodeiro has scored eight goals in five home games in his 10 career MLS games against the Rapids, including 5 goals and 5 assists in playoff games. In three of his last four games against Colorado at home, Lodeiro has scored multiple goals, including a goal and an assist in the 2017-18 matchup.

Diego Rubio set a Rapids club record with 23 goals last season—more than any other player in club history—with 16 goals and 7 assists. In Rapids history, Rubio’s 16 goals tied Conor Casey’s 2009 total for the most goals scored in a single regular season.
