COMMERCE CITY, Colo. – The games have come fast and furious for the Colorado Rapids in the past six weeks, and there’s certainly no relief in sight this time around either.

Following Friday night’s 1-0 defeat to the LA Galaxy in California, the Rapids flew back to Colorado to prepare quickly for their CONCACAF Champions League Group B game against Santos Laguna of Mexico on Tuesday (10 pm ET, Fox Soccer).
