Confidence is going to be key in this game on the road against a team that is reeling and trying to get their own confidence back.  

If the Colorado Rapids let off the gas for a second and show weakness to a good L.A. Galaxy team the Galaxy are sure to be right back in the match.  The Rapids have two wins in a row and know they can score some goals when needed.  They need to remember that this game.

There is also a fine line between confident and over-confident.  The Rapids are riding high right now and rightfully so coming off two great wins, but this  is not a game the Colorado Rapids can expect to be handed to them out right.  They are going to have to earn it.  Underestimating their opponents based on the performance they put forth in the last meeting would be the Rapids undoing.

A confident Rapids team will give them a shot at prevailing on a foreign pitch but will also continue to build on the momentum the Rapids have just started to gain.  There are only 12 more games in this season counting this one and one of those matches is a friendly.  Now is the time to win one more.
