Colorado is the worst team in the MLS Western Conference with just 22 points collected after 29 games. It would be one of the most remarkable feats in the history of sports if the Rapids managed to make the playoffs this season.
They won’t get to the postseason this year, we’re sure of that. In fact, they’ll probably stay at the very bottom of the table until the end. This is why anything but an easy win for the Vancouver Whitecaps on Wednesday would be an embarrassment.
Not only are the Rapids horrible in 2023, but the Whitecaps are pretty good this season. Sure, they did lose their previous two games, but it only means they’re eager to get back on the winning track.
They’ve got a decent roster with some really talented players in practically all positions. The evidence of this is that they’re flying high in the Western Conference with 41 points in 29 games.
Unfortunately for the Canadian team, they still haven’t booked a spot in the playoffs. Actually, they’re far from safe. There are a couple of teams from outside the playoff zone that could leapfrog them in the standings by the end of the season. That’s why beating opponents like Colorado is a must for Vancouver.
Colorado Rapids vs. Vancouver Whitecaps Prediction
The Vancouver Whitecaps need to win on Wednesday to get one step closer to the playoffs. Sure, they play on the road, but their next opponent is the worst team in the conference. It might not be an easy game for the visitors from Vancouver, but we’re almost 100% sure they’re going to collect all three points from their trip to Colorado.
