The Rapids have had a terrible start to the new season, earning just two points in their first five games. This skid started with a 4-0 thrashing of the Seattle Sounders on opening day. In their most recent match, Robin Fraser's team drew 1-1 away at Austin thanks to a late goal from Rapids substitute Kevin Cabral, who had been set up by Michael Barrios' excellent effort down the right wing.
After forcing home goalie Brad Stuver into seven saves throughout the game's 90 minutes, the visitors could even believe that they should have won.
Los Angeles has had a solid start to Steve Cherundolo's first full season in charge, going unbeaten through their first four games of 2023. With three victories and a draw, Los Angeles is comfortably in third position in the standings.
They have started a year with 10 points from their first four games for the third time in five years, and should they avoid defeat this weekend as well, they will start a campaign with five straight victories for the fourth time in the previous five years.
