The Rapids have scored 30 goals at home compared to 26 away. Leading the way offensively have been forward Robbie Keane and midfielder Landon Donovan, contributing fifteen and nine goals respectively. The Earthquakes return to Buck Shaw after a 4-1 win in Commerce City against the Colorado Rapids on Oct. 6.
