Notes

  • The Rapids head into Saturday’s match on a five-game unbeaten run at home against Minnesota United FC. Colorado tied the first meeting 2-2 and won the following four encounters, outscoring the Loons nine to six in that span.
  • Rapids forward Diego Rubio leads the team with 10 goals and six assists in his 2022 account. The Chilean has now recorded a goal or an assist in six consecutive matches and is one game-winning goal away from tying Paul Bravo for most in club history (12).
  • The Rapids’ victory over the Red Bulls on Tuesday marked William Yarbrough’s 30th win in goal for Colorado, moving him to fourth on the Rapids’ all-time list for most wins recorded by a goalkeeper, surpassing Tim Howard and Joe Cannon.
  • Burgundy Boys Collen Warner and Sam Nicholson will face their old club on Saturday night. Warner was drafted in the second round by the Loons during the 2016 MLS Expansion Draft, and went on to record a goal and assist over 42 appearances with Minnesota. Nicholson first entered the league via Minnesota in 2017, scoring two goals and delivering two assists over 20 appearances prior to being traded to Colorado in 2019 for his first stint in Burgundy.
  • Yarbrough is also one shutout away from recording his 25th with the Rapids, which would tie him with Joe Cannon for third-most in club history.
  • Jack Price is one assist away from sole possession of second-most assists all-time in club history (currently T-2nd with 34).
