Notes

  • Colorado has lost only three of its last 25 regular-season matches against Houston dating back to August 2009 (13-3-9) and head coach Robin Fraser is undefeated against the Dynamo since being appointed the head coach of the Rapids on August 25, 2019, posting a record of 4-0-2.
  • With their goal against Vancouver Whitecaps FC on Wednesday, the Rapids have scored in each of their last nine games. Colorado has scored 19 goals in that span, which marks their longest run of consecutive games with a goal scored since a similar streak of eight games from August 15, 2021, to September 20, 2021.
  • The Rapids enter their midweek encounter against Houston on a four-game unbeaten run at home.
  • Forward Gyasi Zardes scored in the Rapids’ 2-1 loss on the road to Vancouver midweek, marking his sixth goal from his past seven appearances. The U.S. international has now recorded 95 regular-season goals in his MLS career
