Colorado Rapids News
Robin Fraser's Rapids are in a bit of a slump because Minnesota United beat them 2-1 in the US Open Cup 2022, a tournament that these clubs play in parallel to Major League Soccer.
In the match played at Allianz Field, the home of United, the goals for the home team were scored by Abu Danladi in the 7th minute and Emanuel Reynoso in the 43rd minute, while the away goal was scored by Nicolás Mezquida in the 15th minute.
However, Rapids need to get back on track as they go against one of the clubs fighting for the MLS leadership in the Western Conference.
The club's players have done such a good job scoring that they have managed to make invisible the problem they have: the goal drought of Carlos Vela, who has not scored since Week 4.
In that week, he scored 1 goal against the Vancouver Whitecaps, with the score ending 3-1. And since the rest of the team has been performing well, the problem seems not to be serious for now, but in the future, it will be.
Vela started the tournament with an incredible scoring streak and in his first game, he scored a hat-trick. But now the minutes are passing and he has not scored, so he is facing a lack of goals similar to last year.
However, last year he struggled with injuries, and this year, no one knows why, but Carlos Vela simply does not score and could become a big problem for his club in the future.
