Philadelphia Union vs Colorado Rapids Predictions


Key Stat: Philadelphia Union is scary at home

Tip Reasoning

  • Philadelphia Union has won their last five matches at home
  • Colorado Rapids has been poor away from home with only one win in their last five away matches
  • Philadelphia Union has the best defence in the league so far


The Eastern Conference leaders, the Philadelphia Union enters this match in high spirits. Philadelphia Union’s last league outing ended in a statement 6-0 win against DC United. It marked their fifth straight win at home and extended their record of thirteen games unbeaten at the Subaru Park. For Colorado Rapids, they head into this game coming off a 1-1 draw against Houston Dynamo. The draw against Houston marked their third game without a win in the last five.

Colorado Rapids’s defence will have to be at their best on saturday if they’re to stop Philadelphia Union. Philadelphia’s recent run of form is one to put the league at alert. They have been scoring with ease and have also done incredibly well in defence, with seventeen goals in their last five games and only three goals conceded in those games. Colorado Rapids have been struggling to win games away from home with only one win in their previous five games on the road. This game should be a walk in the park for the Philadelphia Union as they look to continue to exert their dominance in the Eastern Conference.

Tip Reasoning

Key Stat: Philadelphia’s defence is intimidating

  • Philadelphia has conceded the least goals this season
  • Philadelphia Union has averaged 4.2 goals a game in their last five games at home
  • Colorado Rapids concedes 1.5 goals a game

Philadelphia unlike Los Angeles FC who tops the Western Conference is not particularly reliant on their offence. Philadelphia Union’s defence has played a big role in their rise to the top as they have conceded the least goals in the league, 20. Their defensive prowess is not all they offer as they have been scoring a lot of goals lately, especially at Subaru Park. Philadelphia Union has scored 21 goals in their last five home games. Going against a Colorado Rapids side that’s particularly awful when playing away from home, I’d back the Philadelphia Union to score goals at ease. Over 2.5 goals scored is written all over this one.
