Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 8 July 2018
Kick-Off at 03:00 UK
Venue: Rio Tinto Stadium (Sandy, Utah)
Real Salt Lake have finally ended a four-game winless streak across competitions with a 4-2 win over Sporting KC in front of the home crowd and they host FC Dallas in the hope they can build on the success, catching up with the Western Conference top 2 with all-important home points.
Claret and Cobalt have been much more successful at Rio Tinto Stadium and they’ll obviously base any success on such performances at this ground, which gives even more important to this clash. Milke Petke‘s men have bagged seven wins in nine home outings this term, with only a loss to Sporting KC in US Open Cup and a draw against SJ Earthquakes seen along the way – showing off as a confident and convincing outfit.
Dallas have used the opportunity and topped the Conference table with wins over Minnesota United and Atlanta United in their last two outings, netting four goals in the process. However, they have seen woes on the road beforehand and this could be more worrying, as Toros regularly conceded goals and dropped points.
