Team News

Colorado
New England
  • Tim Howard will miss the Colorado Rapids' season opener, with Zac MacMath playing in his place.
  • Other than that, though, Pablo Mastroeni has a clean bill of health for this match.
  • The New England Revolution will play in a diamond formation, which means Juan Agudelo will transition into a forward when his side move into attack.
  • Jay Heaps has a full squad to choose from the season opener.

Prediction

  • The Colorado Rapids didn't make many changes over the winter, with the loss of Jermaine Jones their only notable exit. Their success last season was built on defence, and so Pablo Mastreoni is looking to stick with that ethos.
  • On their day the New England Revolution can be one of the most dangerous sides in the league, with Kei Kamara, Lee Nguyen and Juan Agudelo leading the line. But those days were too few and far between last season. That must change.
  • The Rapids will have a tough task in keeping the Revs at bay, but if any team can do it they can.
