Time is running out for Colorado Rapids to qualify for the post-season. A huge 10 points separate them from the playoffs, as things stand in the Western Conference. Considering only 8 regular season games remains, including the next one, even a good run till the end of the season may not be enough to propel them into the top-seven.

Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:

Albert Rusnak: Real Salt Lake’s leading goal scorer this season. He is somebody who can affect the match with the ball under his feet. More often than not, his passing puts his teammates in a very good situation. The 25-year-old is a no-nonsense choice here.

Current season stats:

  • Games: 23
  • Games Started: 22
  • Goals: 09
  • Assists: 04
  • Shots: 56
  • Shots on Goal: 23

Kei Kamara: Colorado Rapids’ struggles this season doesn’t suffice well with Kei Kamara’s exploits in front of the goal. For his 11 goals return, the 34-year-old deserves a better view on the table. Regardless, he will be a threat in this game.

Current season stats:

  • Games: 24
  • Games Started: 24
  • Goals: 11
  • Assists: 01
  • Shots: 70
  • Shots on Goal: 30

Diego Rubio: This Colorado team certainly has goals. One of the key performers for them this season is Diego Rubio. The 26-year-old has already bettered his goal-scoring record for a single season in this campaign. Can’t be left out.

Current season stats:

  • Games: 20
  • Games Started: 19
  • Goals: 09
  • Assists: 03
  • Shots: 37
  • Shots on Goal: 10

Sam Johnson: Doesn’t start too often, but he is worth mentioning here. Despite featuring mainly from the bench, the 26-year-old is the team’s joint top-scorer alongwith Albert Rusnak. He can be a game-changer. Play him in your wold card team.

Current season stats:

  • Games: 19
  • Games Started: 11
  • Goals: 09
