MLS Week 10 Predictions - Midweek

For the last time till the 21st of June, MLS is playing some games on Wednesday as DC welcomes the Crew to town while the Rapids look for a victory against the visiting Galaxy.

DC United vs. Columbus Crew
7:30pm ET
TV: Direct Kick (DK), MLStv, Ohio News Network
Radio: DC - WMET 1160am, WACA 1540am (Spanish); Columbus 105.7fm

Tonight is Columbus Crew goalkeeper night in DC as the 52nd fan will get to guard the net for the visitors. Okay, I'm making that up, but who knows as the Crew has four keepers out due to injury. They might have discovered some offense of late, but without a solid man between the posts, you are not going to beat a team like DC. With a victory tonight, United will pull even with FC Dallas in the race for the Supporter's Shield.

Me: DC 3-1 Crew
Wife: DC 2-1 Crew


Colorado Rapids vs. Los Angeles Galaxy
9:30pm ET
TV: Direct Kick (DK), MLStv, FSN Prime Ticket
Radio: Denver - KKFN 950am, KBNO 1280am (Spanish); LA - KMPC 1540am, KTNQ 1020am (Spanish), Radio Korea 1230am (Korean)

Colorado has been inconsistent of late (beating DC one weak just to fall to the Crew the next) but LA does not has such a problem as they have been nothing but horrible for about 5 weeks. For the Rapids, they are looking like a middle of the table kind of squad (i.e. able to get ties against lesser teams on the road while beating them, and the occasional big fish, at home). LA just looks like week old squid meat. They have now gone 6 and a half hours without a goal and their defense always finds a way to allow a goal or two in. The one thing going for them, they have had the last 11 days off to regroup. Will it be enough? No. LA is bound to get better at some point in the season, but not yet.

Me: Colorado 2-1 LA
Wife: Colorado 2-3 LA (obviously she sees LA in a different light)
