MLS Preview: Sporting Kansas City - Colorado Rapids

George Frey

The Rapids will put their nine-game unbeaten streak to the test when they travel to face a Kansas City squad that has lost four of five.

Riding a nine-game unbeaten streak that has given a boost to once-doubtful playoff odds, the Colorado Rapids will try to reach double digits by grabbing a road result against Sporting Kansas City on Saturday.

Kansas City (11-9-6) boasts a talented squad and vaunted home venue, but Peter Vermes' side has dropped four of its past five matches, including back-to-back 1-0 defeats. Colorado (10-7-9), on the other hand, should be fresh after enjoying a bye week.

Sporting, which will be missing suspended midfielder Peterson Joseph, will want to continue the momentum started with a midweek Champions League win over Honduran side CD Olimpia and get back on track in league play before Graham Zusi and Matt Besler depart for U.S. national team duty.

Poised to make his second start, new Rapids striker Gabriel Torres will be eager to open his MLS scoring account before reporting for international duty himself with Panama.
