Real Salt Lake vs Houston Dynamo Match Preview

Real Salt Lake stunned last term’s MLS Cup finalists Seattle Sounders 0-1 on the road on Saturday evening to boost up the confidence ahead of the mid-week home clash with the Conference rivals Houston Dynamo. Can Mike Petke finally begin a positive thread and conform the exit from the crisis with another success here?

He will definitely have a challenging task in doing so given the rivals have been enjoying a fine spell of form recently. Los Naranjas won three of last four league ties and they’ll head into this off the back of consecutive victories over Chicago Fire and New York City.

The head coach Wilmer Cabrera can be particularly be thrilled with his men’s attacking showings as Houston notched as many as 11 goals in last four games in MLS. Alberto Elis and Mauro Manotas are the most lethal of Dynamo’s forwards as they shared the tally of 12 goals between them after 11 rounds.

Real Salt Lake vs Houston Dynamo: Head-to-head

  • Houston Dynamo lead the head to head tie by four wins coming into 27th match against Claret and Cobalt.
  • Los Naranjas won three in a row against Real Salt Lake before teams shared spoils in a goalless draw in August last year.
  • Nevertheless, Houston won just 2 of 13 away outings against Claret and Cobalt.

Real Salt Lake vs Houston Dynamo: Prediction

Petke’s men may have struggled with the form at the start of the season, but they’ve been rather consistent in their own backyard winning four on the bounce there. If we add the shocking 0-1 win away at Seattle Sounders on Saturday, we can hardly go for the away win set at 2.70 in spite of Houston’s lethal attacking form of late.

Backing goals should thus just be the way to go here. You can take the Over 2.5 goals FT & BTTS bet at 1.72 or you can choose any of two sides to net two or more goals at odds higher than 1.80 each.

Real Salt Lake vs Houston Dynamo: Bet Tips

  • Over 2.5 Goals FT & BTTS @ 1.72
