Real Salt Lake vs Minnesota United
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Saturday, 18 July 2020
Kick-off at 03:30 UK/ 04:30 CET
Venue: ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.
The Loons will be high in confidence after the win they pulled over Sporting Kansas City the last match-day. Trailing 0-1 even going into the injury time, they managed to slot in two goals in the 90+2nd and 90+7th minutes.
They surely will be locked and loaded to go after one more victory this Saturday – as it will most probably ensure that they finish in the top of the table.
However, the Claret and Cobalt surely will not be making it easy. They too have won their opener, and will be aiming for the top spot.
As such, expect goals from both teams this weekend. However, considering the momentum of Adrian Heath’s men and their overall h2h superiority over the years – expect them to deliver the better performance.
Real Salt Lake vs Minnesota United: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Since 2005, disregarding a single encounter, 100% of match-ups have had goals from both teams.
- Freddy Juarez’s men have never failed to find the back of the net against this rival.
- The Loons have lost just once against this opponent in their h2h history.
- The previous eight fixtures had a total of 34 goals in total.
Real Salt Lake vs Minnesota United: Prediction
Heath’s men have the advantage here, due to their incredible comeback in their last match. They surely will bring this fighting spirit to this game. Moreover, they have been the better team in h2h clashes over the years as well.
In fact, they have lost just once against this opponent over the years, and they have scored three or more goals in five of the former eight h2h encounters.
As such, expect Minnesota to avoid a loss at the very least this Saturday.
However, understand that Juarez’s men will be ready for the challenge. They had finished on top of this rival in the 2019 edition of the MLS, and importantly, they had won their first game rather comfortably – as opposed to their counterparts who ran hard all 90 minutes.
Moreover, not once have the Loons kept a clean sheet against this rival in their h2h history. As such, expect goals to come from both teams this weekend.
