Rapids Face Ex-Village People On The Road

The reason this preview is late

One more game in this busy week.  Tonight the Rapids are in Columbus facing the newly branded Crew.  Columbus has had a busy week of its own as a locker room meltdown led to the trade of Kei Kamara, who tied Giovinco for the most goals in the league last season.  So we're going to see what kind of mental shape the Crew are in tonight.  Kickoff is at 5:30 on Altitude.

Player Availability:
OUT: D Sean St. Ledger (knee)
QUESTIONABLE: D Eric Miller (groin); M Marco Pappa (knee); F Shkelzen Gashi (illness)
UNAVAILABLE: D Joseph Greenspan (Navy duty)

The same thing we saw on Wednesday.  Columbus is down two players.

Starting XI Prediction:

If it ain't broke...

Prediction: 1-1 draw, goal by Kevin Doyle.  Columbus is struggling but is rested while the Rapids are flying high but playing their third game this week.  I think the teams cancel each other out and the undefeated streak continues but only with a point tonight.
