Colorado Rapids vs. Columbus Crew: Your Running Commentary

RapidsLogo    CLB_Primary_COL

A 2010 postseason rematch is set to take place in the Mile High City, as the defending MLS Cup champion Colorado Rapids host the surging Columbus Crew (9:30 p.m., Fox Soccer Channel).

The Rapids have found new life after the Achilles' tear that ruled star striker Conor Casey out for the rest of the season. Sanna Nyassi has shifted up top and been a revelation for coach Gary Smith's side, which is unbeaten in the three games since Casey went down.

Columbus, meanwhile, has surprisingly taken over the top spot in the Eastern Conference behind a stout defense and solid overall team play, getting contributions from its slew of rookies and also established players like Robbie Rogers, Eddie Gaven and Chad Marshall. The Crew will undoubtedly want to exact even more revenge for last season's loss in the conference semifinals after taking the first meeting between the two teams this season by a 4-1 scoreline in June.

  1. Yeah, a day late, but I agree about the two up top.

    But the rest of the team plays like they warm up by kicking a cripple to death.

  2. Guess you didn’t catch the Rapids win over the Union last week.

    Or their dismantling of NYRB before that.

    Or maybe that long-range shot from Mullan just now.
