VAN vs CR Dream11: It will be the Vancouver Whitecaps that take on Colorado Rapids at the Rio Tinto Stadium for yet another fixture in the Major League Soccer (MLS). It’s been quite the opposite start for both clubs so far. Colorado Rapids are currently in at the 12th spot in the MLS Western Conference and have just a point to their name from the two games. The Rapids were on the receiving end of a 3-1 defeat to Austin and will be eager to bounce back. The Whitecaps, on the other end, have secured four points from the two games and have done reasonably well. Their most recent fixture was a 2-2 draw to Toronto FC, as they look to bag maximum points this time around.
Date: 3 May, Monday
Kick-Off: 6:30 am (ist)
Venue: Rio Tinto Stadium
Major League Soccer Table: Vancouver are in at 8th with four points, while, Colorado are 11th in the Western Conference with a point to their name.
