Notes

  • With their 1-1 draw against the Columbus Crew on Saturday, the Rapids have scored in each of their last eight games in MLS.
  • Diego Rubio scored his 12th goal of the season in the Rapids’ 1-1 draw against Columbus on Saturday, marking a new single-season career high for the Chilean and marking the eighth consecutive match he has recorded a goal or an assist this season (five goals, five assists).
  • GK William Yarbrough is one shutout away from recording his 25th with the Rapids, which would tie him with Joe Cannon for third-most in club history.
  • The Rapids enter Wednesday’s match on a three-game unbeaten run against the Whitecaps (1-0-2), which is the third time that Colorado has gone three consecutive matches without losing to Vancouver since the two sides first faced off in 2011 (2012-13; 2016).
  • Rapids defender Steven Beitashour spent two seasons in Vancouver (2014, 2015), registering 58 appearances, 4,795 minutes and eight assists across all competitions, and helping the Whitecaps capture the Canadian Championship in 2015.
