Real Salt Lake vs Los Angeles FC
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Thursday, 27 August 2020
Kick-off at 02:30 UK/ 03:30 CET
Venue: Rio Tinto Stadium.
The Black and Gold have been one of the best teams in the competition for the last few years, and they even had won the Supporters’ Shield the season before – and that too in terrific style.
In fact, they had a lead of 16 points at the top in the West, and had outscored any team in the whole MLS by at least 22 goals. Also keep note that they had the best defense as well, and had lost a total of just four fixtures all through the regular season.
Meanwhile, the Claret and Cobalt had a modest finish out of the top-two in the West in 2019, and thus missed out on a ticket to the CONCACAF Champions League.
And most importantly, Bob Bradley’s men have phenomenally dominated this opponent over the years in h2h clashes. By the looks of things, expect Los Angeles FC to emerge victorious this Thursday.

Real Salt Lake vs Los Angeles FC: Prediction
Bradley’s men were the best team in the regular season in the whole of MLS in 2019, and they expectedly took home the Supporters’ Shield. They had absolutely dominated all the other teams in the roster in terms of stats, and especially in the goal-scoring department.
On top of that, they also have a near-perfect h2h record against this opponent. And interestingly, they have been even more authoritative in such fixtures at this stadium, and have a 100% winning record in such match-ups here.
For the reasons, expect a Los Angeles FC win this Thursday, and that too in style.
