    A chance almost opening up for Navarro and the Rapids. Sailor just about manages to get ahead of the striker and passes the ball to Callender in goal.

  • April 07, 2024 05:34
    19’ MIA 0 - 0 COL

  • April 07, 2024 05:32

    CHANCE!! Aviles’ shot goes just above the bar. Dressel played a little one two off the corner before putting the ball in. Miami recovers the ball on the right wing and tees up Aviles who goes close!

  • April 07, 2024 05:28
    14’ MIA 0 - 0 COL

  • April 07, 2024 05:23
    9’ MIA 0 - 0 COL

    Space for Cabral to run at goal one and one. Ruiz brings him down but the referee waves play on. Contentious decision that. VAR has a look and sides with the onfield referee.

  • April 07, 2024 05:22

    All Colorado so far. Navarro with a smart run into the box from the right. Passes it to Mihailovic who goes down at the edge of the box. Nothing from the referee. Replays showing the defender clearly took the ball.
