The game between Colorado Rapids and LAFC scheduled for this Wednesday was postponed due to confirmed cases of COVID-19 among Rapids staff. It's too soon to tell when the game will be held, but it can be sustained that the suspension was positive for Bob Bradley's side.
As expected, the game was suspended to preserve the health of the LAFC footballers. This isn't the only reason why Bob Bradley should be happy. Bradley was going to suffer the losses of 4 of his players due to the commitments to their respective national teams during the international FIFA window.
The Los Angeles team was without their scoring duo, the Uruguayans Brian Rodríguez and Diego Rossi, called up by Óscar Washington Tabárez for Qualifyings. Both scored in Sunday's triumph against Real Salt Lake. Diego Rossi has scored 9 goals and delivered 2 assists in 10 games during 2020.
The other two LAFC players absent are defender Diego Palacios and midfielder José Cifuentes, both from Ecuador. They were summoned by coach Gustavo Alfaro to face Argentina and Uruguay. Before the suspension of the game, Bob Bradley said that it was very difficult to start these games without some of the big names like Rodriguez, Rossi, Palacios and Cifuentes, but they would try not to change the way they play.
