Notes:

NO CHANGES FOLLOWING SUNDAY'S WIN

Head coach Robin Fraser's lineup remains unchanged from the Rapids' 1-0 win Sunday night over Vancouver Whitecaps FC.

50 APPEARANCES FOR ANDRE SHINYASHIKI

Forward Andre Shinyashiki hits a career milestone tonight, as he makes his 50th appearance in MLS. Overall, the 2019 MLS Rookie of the Year has scored 12 goals and four assists over the last three seasons with the Rapids.

CLEAN SHEETS

The Colorado Rapids lead MLS with two clean sheets on the road and are one of just five teams to keep two shutouts this season. Goalkeeper William Yarbrough was named to the MLS Team of the Week after his three-save performance last Sunday against Vancouver. It was Yarbrough’s sixth clean sheet in 20 appearances since joining Colorado in March 2020. Yarbrough has three shutouts, all on the road, in his last five regular season matches.

FIRE AWAY

In the 26th minute against Vancouver on Sunday, Forward Diego Rubio curled a free kick into the top corner for the eventual game-winner. The direct free kick goal was Colorado’s first since Rubio scored from a set piece in September 2019 against FC Dallas. It was also one of just three direct free kick goals in MLS so far this season. Rubio was named to the MLS Team of the Week following the game-winning strike. The goal was the 30th of Rubio’s MLS career and the 27-year-old Chilean now has 15 goals in 45 MLS games with Colorado since 2019. The Rapids are 8-2-3 (W-L-D) when Rubio scores since he joined the team in 2019.

TWENTY FIVE & COUNTING

The Rapids have now scored in 25 straight matches inside DICK'S Sporting Goods Park, a tally that marks the longest active streak in MLS.
