After waiting two weeks, it is finally time for the game! Chivas USA host the Colorado Rapids this evening at the HDC (7:30 pm PT, MLS Live). Both teams won in their last match, so confidence is running high and three points will be the objective of the day! Can the Goats prevail, or will the Rapids come out with some or all of the points?
If you missed them, be sure to take a look at the Three Questions feature from Thursday and the match preview from yesterday.
I'll be here with my customary basic play-by-play and commentary in the comment section below, so feel free to jump into the discussion!
