The Colorado Rapids and Portland Timbers are still searching for their first victories of the 2013 MLS season and both face tough tests at home as they each try to escape the realm of the witness.
The Rapids play host to Real Salt Lake in a Rocky Mountain clash that will show us whether the injury-hit Rapids can rebound from last week’s disappointing come-from-ahead draw vs. Portland.
Speaking of the Timbers, Caleb Porter’s squad will look to stop their trend of falling behind early and rallying for ties by registering their first win of the season when they take on the Houston Dynamo at Jeld-Wen Field.
