Rapids vs. Revs Game Notes Guide

Your Colorado Rapids play their final regular season home game of 2009 at Dick's Sporting Goods Park tomorrow vs. the New England Revolution.

Kickoff is set for 7:00pm tomorrow night!

The Rapids have a great home record vs. New England, going 11-3-2 all time in matches played in Colorado. In fact, Colorado are still riding a seven-game undefeated streak in home games vs. the Revs. The Revolution's last victory in Denver came in a 2-1 victory at Invesco Field at Mile High on June 15, 2002.

Colorado (10-8-9, 39 pts) gained a valuable point in the Western Conference standings with their road draw at Kansas City last Saturday night and now hold the third spot in the West, and one of the four wildcard positions in the playoff race. Three points against New England tomorrow would do wonders for Colorado’s postseason plans with only two regular season games remaining after this game, both on the road.

New England (10-9-7, 37 pts) are desperate for points as well, sitting in 3rd place in the East, currently in the last playoff wildcard spot. The Revs enter the match having lost on the road this Wednesday at Dallas.

The Rapids look forward to seeing all fans for the final regular season home game of the year; don't forget to arrive early for what promises to be a whopper of a pregame Supporters Tailgate starting at 5:00pm!
