Only Josef Martinez (7) vs D.C. United has scored more goals at home against a single opponent than Vela against the Colorado Rapids since he joined MLS in 2018.

Only three teams in MLS history have scored fewer goals than the Colorado Rapids 16 through 23 games of a season, most recently FC Cincinnati (12) in 2020. The Colorado Rapids had never before scored fewer than 20 times at this stage of a season.
