A 5-2 win over Orlando City on Tuesday night in the fourth round of the U.S. Open Cup leads this week's Rapids Podcast, presented by Dick's Sporting Goods. Head coach Pablo Mastroeni talks of his tactics ahead of that game, and of his hopes for the fifth round contest at home against Atlanta Silverbacks, to be staged on June 24 (TICKETS).

The 11 which took to the field for the Colorado Rapids' most recent home game, a 0-0 draw against Chicago Fire, raised a few eyebrows. Eight changes were made to the side which had 73 hours earlier overwhelmed Houston Dynamo 3-0 at Dick's Sporting Goods Park.

A week is a long time in sport. After Montreal Impact and Houston Dynamo were comfortably dealt with by the Rapids, thoughts of heading into the mini World Cup break on a huge high were dealt a bit of a blow with a draw and a loss in the two most recent outings.

Bizarrely, the defeat at FC Dallas on Saturday was easier to swallow than the tie with Chicago Fire three days earlier. A more familiar-looking lineup had greater threat in the final third, netting two well-worked goals, but ultimately fell short.

Emerging from the midweek draw with Chicago Fire, the Colorado Rapids now focus on the trip to FC Dallas this Saturday (6.30 p.m ko), to face a struggling side led by former head coach Oscar Pareja. Victory would allow the resurgent Rapids to pocket 10 points from a possible 12 following back-to-back losses.

Goalless draws can sometimes be nail-biting thrillers, packed with incident, intrigue, drama and end-to-end action. They can have you perched on the edge of your seat, not wanting to look but compelled to peer from behind your quivering hands as a spine-tingling spectacle unfolds before you. You sit, open-mouthed, at the final whistle, drained of emotion, stunned into silence and blinking into the glare of the floodlights wondering how the contest you’d just witnessed ended in dead-lock.

Wednesday’s game wasn’t like that.

COMMERCE CITY, Colo. – They certainly didn’t look like prize fighters, but the backup-riddled lineups of the Chicago Fire and the Colorado Rapids appeared to size each other up as such on a gloomy Wednesday night in Colorado.

With most of the starters on the bench, however, a knockout punch was not forthcoming.

Each team chose to rest a number of starters in the second to last game before the World Cup break and nobody could provide the golden foot in a 0-0 draw at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park.
