The date was June 29, 2013 and the solitary MLS meeting of the season, involving Montreal Impact and the Colorado Rapids, was locked at 3-3. Eighty-nine of the 90 minutes had passed, and Tony Cascio had sat - like TV and stadium spectators-alike - gripped by the thrilling contest which was drawing to a close.

Vicente Sánchez is two weeks away from recovery, after which it will then be a coaching decision on his match fitness, following a sprained left knee suffered in the 1-0 win over LA Galaxy on May 3.

The 34-year-old, who is the Rapids' leading scorer this season with five goals, can run, twist and turn but suffers some discomfort with the ball at his feet.

The Colorado Rapids boast just five goals from their previous seven games, while Montreal Impact have bagged only eight goals in MLS all season, and yet when these two teams meet there always seems to be plenty of action and no small shortage of drama.

Take the match in Montreal last season, in which the Rapids took the lead through Atiba Harris, only to be pegged back and then overtaken by the then Eastern Conference leaders, and a side that were undefeated at home in 2013.

Colorado Rapids midfielder José Mari was back in training earlier today (pictured above left), having been a late withdrawal from the team to face Real Salt Lake last Saturday, due to flu-like symptoms.

The 26-year-old was replaced in the starting line-up by Nathan Sturgis, as the Rapids fell 2-1 at their Rocky Mountain Cup rivals. But, when the team returned to training on Tuesday, José Mari was actively involved.

Nobody can fault the Rapids for effort, despite a second successive loss in MLS, and it’s clear that they are fully aware of where they've fallen short, whether that be their paucity in front of the posts or the slow starts. As skipper Drew Moor noted after Saturday’s showing in Sandy: “We just can’t wait to get punched in the face before we start playing.”
