Real Salt Lake vs Minnesota United Prediction & Match Preview

Real Salt Lake vs Minnesota United
Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 21 July 2019
Kick-off at 03:00 UK/ 04:00 CET
Venue: Rio Tinto Stadium (Sandy).

Minnesota has entered a period of domination, with them currently on a four-game winning run in the league. But concerns have been raised about their performances on the road, after four of their last five attempts with away handicap, ended in losses.

Compounding their problems, they are visiting Real Salt Lake, who won their last five league matches at the Rio Tinto Stadium in a row.

Both teams will be desperate for a win for other reasons too. The first being, LA Galaxy is taking on the topper of the conference LAFC, and in all probability, will be dropping points, which is a major opportunity for these two in their pursuit of a podium finish. Count in a defeat for one of these two, and the other will be ecstatic beyond belief.

  • The last the hosts lost here was seven years back.

Real Salt Lake vs Minnesota United Prediction

Real was unbeaten in four of their last five matches and won three of their last four. They have conceded just one goal from these four fixtures while slotting four goals in the last game alone. At home, they are on a winning run of three ties, and in five of their last six too. They had also registered two or more goals in six of their last nine such encounters and kept clean sheets in their last three on the road.

Importantly, they won the last five league games at home and is the only one to do so in the whole league, while Minnesota lost four of their last five away ties in the competition. As such, expect the hosts to have a shot at the three points.

However, United is on a seven-game winning run and scored three or more goals in six of these. It’s highly unlikely that their frontline will be kept at bay for the whole of the game.
