Cincinnati form and stats

Two Major League Soccer home games so far for Cincinnati, who are yet to win here. Only 0 points so far. We have seen two home losses in a row now for Cincinnati, who are hoping that the phrase “third time lucky” applies to them.

The Cincinnati crowd went home unhappy last time out, seeing their beloved players lose 0-1 to New England here in a Major League Soccer match. Midfielder Allan Cruz was the best player on the team with a rating of 8.14 (out of ten) in that game. Cruz hit one key pass and had 17 successful passes (of 21 total).

A strong away win before that one, visiting Montreal Impact and winning 2-1.

The manager J. Stam will start preparations for the next game as soon this is finished, as the hosts are going to Chicago Fire in only four days.

It's still early days, but we have some goal stats for the Cincinnati at home in the league. 2 on target and 4 scored by the opposition; from 2 matches.

Colorado Rapids form and stats

Things could have gone better for Colorado Rapids in their Major League Soccer away matches, but 4 points from 3 games is all right.

The supporters enjoyed Colorado's previous game versus Dallas, a Major League Soccer 3-0 win played at home. Auston Trusty, who plays in defense, got the "man of the match" on his team with the rating 8.43. Trusty won 5 of 9 duels. Goalkeeper William Yarbrough was absolutely vital in the Colorado Rapids victory against Dallas, making six saves.

Preceding that game, the 1-2 loss visiting Los Angeles FC's place.

There might be some complaints about the fixture list from the Colorado manager R. Fraser as the team has another away game coming up in only four days, this time against Sporting KC.

The attacking power of Colorado Rapids when travelling is not overwhelming with 2 goals scored from 3 league matches away. Colorado are defending well in their away games, having conceded only 2 times in 3 matches. For more goal statistics, check out the Statistics tab above.
