ABOUT COLORADO (8-14-10, 34 points): The Rapids have scored only 30 goals this season, fewest in MLS, and they’re on pace for the worst goals-per-game mark in club history. On the other hand, they have allowed the fewest road goals (16) in the league this season.
ABOUT SPORTING KC (13-10-9, 48 points): The club can clinch a playoff berth with a win. It is only one point ahead of seventh-place San Jose for the final spot, but it has two games remaining in the regular season and San Jose has just one. ... Matt Besler (ankle), Seth Sinovic (hamstring), Kevin Ellis (ankle) and Soni Mustivar (hip) are listed as questionable. Ellis and Mustivar took part in training this week and are likely to play.
BOTTOM LINE: Sporting KC is unbeaten at home against Colorado since 2002, a span over 15 matches, including the postseason. It has lost only once to the Rapids in the past 12 meetings, though that loss came on Aug. 29 this season.
PREDICTION: Sporting KC 2, Colorado 0
