Notes

  • The two sides last met at altitude over three years ago in May 2019. The Rapids took a 3-2 victory on that day following goals from Nicolás Mezquida, Tommy Smith and Jonathan Lewis. Lewis' goal was his first in burgundy, and Gyasi Zardes scored for the Crew on that occasion.
  • Diego Rubio scored his 11th goal of the season in the Rapids’ 4-3 win over Minnesota on Saturday, matching his single-season ca-reer high for goals scored in MLS and marking the seventh consecutive match the Chilean has recorded a goal or an assist.
  • Rubio is also one goal away from tying Chris Henderson for the fifth-most goals scored all-time in Rapids history (31) and one game-winning goal away from tying former Rapids midfielder Paul Bravo for most in club history (12).
  • In his last six games for Colorado, Zardes has scored five goals and produced one assist, leading the team to a 3-1-2 record.
