Given their offensive issues in recent trips to Colorado, Friday night's match against the Rapids might not help them turn things around. Including the playoffs, they are also scoreless in five straight losses at Colorado, failing to score in 501 minutes since a 1-0 victory on Aug. 1, 2009. Though midfielder Wil Trapp returned from a three-game absence due to a knee injury, the Crew failed to score for the fifth time in nine league matches against FC Dallas.

Dallas (6-7-5) is 2-0-4 in six all-time meetings with the Union and has outscored them 6-2 in three home meetings, winning twice. His absence puts added pressure on Blas Perez and Michel, who also have five goals apiece.
