It is almost time for the latest Chivas USA game! The Goats are in Colorado and are set to take on the Colorado Rapids (6 pm PDT, KDOC/KWHY). Both teams are coming off losses and desperately looking to get three points tonight. Who will emerge victorious? Or will this one end in a draw? We'll find out shortly!

If you missed it, check out the match preview from earlier today, as well as my dose of optimism heading into the match. Can Chivas continue their streak of winning after losing badly? For the sake of Chivatown, let's hope so.
