When: 6 p.m.

Where: Dick's Sporting Goods Park, Commerce City, Colo.

On the air: TV: FSW, KWHY.

Records: Chivas 3-4, Colorado 3-4.

Record vs. Colorado: 0-1-1 (2011)

Update: Both teams are mired near the bottom of the Western Conference standings, but they took different routes to get there. Chivas USA has gone 3-0 on the road and have conceded just five goals in seven games, while the Rapids have allowed 10 scores, second-most in the conference. Both teams are coming off equally tough losses, though: Colorado fell to the Galaxy when it failed to convert a penalty kick in stoppage time, and Chivas USA lost to Philadelphia, 1-0, in a game it dominated. In that match Chivas' slumbering offense got a big boost from Juan Pablo Angel, who played for the first time since the season's opening weekend and got off a team-high five shots in 27 minutes.
