Unsurprisingly Remi Garde gives a vote of confidence to the line-up which started in the 4-0 win over Philadelphia Union last Saturday evening.

Zachary Brault-Guillard retains his place on the right side of defence, with Bacary Sagna not in the 18.

Urruti and Piatti again form the double spearhead, with Okwonkwo and Lappalainen on the flanks. Shome and Taider will anchor the midfield and the back four and goal-keeper is ‘as you were’.

On the bench, it’s, Diop, Camacho, Krolicki, Azira, Choiniere, Bayiha, and Jackson-Hamel.

Rapids coach Conor Casey makes three changes from the side that lost at the Earthquakes last weekend.

40-year-old Tim Howard regains his spot in goal over Clint Irwin, while the five-man midfield is revamped.

Out go Jonathan Lewis and the former Glasgow Rangers defender, Danny Wilson. In come Brazilian Andre Shinyashiki and former Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder, Jack Price, giving the Rapids engine room a slightly more attacking inflection.

Top scorer, Kei Kamara ploughs the lone furrow, up front.

On the bench for the Rapids are - Irwin, Opare, Wilson, Lewis, Serna, Mezquida and Bassett.
