📊 Form Guide

Real Salt Lake LWDDLW

Real Salt Lake, following on from their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after the 1-0 MLS victory vs Los Angeles FC.

In that match, Real Salt Lake managed 44% possession and 19 attempts on goal with 8 of them on target. For Real Salt Lake, the goals were scored by Kreilach (9'), Meram (47') and Rusnák (79'). At the other end, Los Angeles FC had 18 shots on goal with 8 of them on target.

It’s been a rare occasion in recent times where Real Salt Lake have shown defensive steel. The reality is that Claret and Cobalt have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 matches, leaking 16 goals in the process.

Colorado Rapids DDLDDD

Last time out, Colorado Rapids drew 1-1 in the MLS tie with San Jose Earthquakes.

In that match, Colorado Rapids managed 65% possession and 24 attempts at goal with 5 on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Colorado Rapids was Abubakar (90'). At the other end, Houston Dynamo had 10 attempts on goal with 3 of them on target. Ramírez (46') scored for Houston Dynamo.

Colorado Rapids have been dangerous up front in the lead-up to this encounter, scoring 8 goals in their last 6 matches. While their manager Robin Fraser will no doubt take that as a positive sign, Rapids have been somewhat leaky at the back, having also been scored against in 6 of those same outings. It will be interesting to find out whether or not that trend will be sustained in this game.

📰 Team News: Real Salt Lake

Real Salt Lake boss Freddy Juarez does not have any fitness concerns whatsoever before this clash thanks to a fully injury-free squad ready to go.

We think that Claret and Cobalt could use the 4-2-3-1 system this time and select Andrew Putna, Donny Toia, Nedum Onuoha, Justen Glad, Aaron Herrera, Pablo Ruiz, Damir Kreilach, Justin Meram, Albert Rusnák, Maikel Chang and Corey Baird.

📋 Team News: Colorado Rapids

With a fully healthy group available to choose from, Colorado Rapids manager Robin Fraser has no fitness concerns to speak of before this game.

We reckon that Rapids could decide to utilise a 4-2-3-1 system, starting the game with William Yarbrough, Keegan Rosenberry, Lalas Abubakar, Danny Wilson, Sam Vines, Jack Price, Kellyn Acosta, Younes Namli, Cole Bassett, Jonathan Lewis and Kei Kamara.

💡 Prediction

Our assessment here is that Colorado Rapids will need to push hard to register a score against this Real Salt Lake outfit who we think will likely win and very possibly keep a clean sheet.

We’re therefore seeing a narrow 1-0 winning margin for Real Salt Lake when the full-time whistle blows.

Should be a close one.
