Team News: Real Salt Lake
Axel Kei (Unknown Injury) and Zack Farnsworth (Unknown Injury) will be missing for Real Salt Lake boss Pablo Mastroeni.
It’s our opinion that Claret and Cobalt look set to make use of the 4-4-2 system this time, beginning the first half with Zac MacMath, Andrew Brody, Marcelo Silva, Justen Glad, Aaron Herrera, Justin Meram, Pablo Ruiz, Everton Luiz, Maikel Chang, Rubio Rubin and Bobby Wood.
Team News: Austin FC
Owing to an otherwise available squad, there is only the lone fitness worry for the Austin FC manager Josh Wolff to be concerned about. Jhohan Romaña (Muscle Injury) won’t be playing here. Cecilio Domínguez cannot play in this game through suspension.
There’s a good chance that Austin FC will likely make use of a 4-2-3-1 lineup by sending out Andrew Tarbell, Jon Gallagher, Ruben Gabrielsen, Julio Cascante, Nick Lima, Alexander Ring, Daniel Pereira, Ethan Finlay, Sebastián Driussi, Diego Fagundez and Maximiliano Urruti.
Looking at these two teams, we feel that Austin FC must be fancied to put one past this Real Salt Lake outfit, although that possibly won’t quite be as many as they will have scored against them.
We think that it’s going to be a 2-1 winning margin for Real Salt Lake at the end of this one. There looks to be little in this one.
