Real Salt Lake vs New York RB: Preview and Predictions

Real Salt Lake vs New York RB
United States – MLS
Date: Sunday, 18 March 2018
Kick-Off at 01:00 UK
Venue: Rio Tinto Stadium (Sandy).

New York RB will have a nice opportunity to back up the perfect kick off to the new MLS campaign with another impressive attacking showing on Saturday afternoon when they travel to Utah to take on Real Salt Lake in the last game of the day. The hosts have been poor at the beginning of the season claiming just a single point in two games and it seems they are once again in for a dismal campaign far away from the playoffs contest.

Ro make things worse for the Claret and Cobalt, they’ve suffered a real disaster shipping as many as five goals in last weekend’s home defeat to Los Angeles FC. Mike Petke has thus run into huge troubles right at the start of the season and he has plenty to think about ahead of this visit of the Bulls.

New York have opened the campaign with a demolishing 4-0 victory over Portland Timbers two weeks ago. Their star man Bradley Wright-Philips was obviously on target, while the Colombian midfielder Carlos Rivas stole the show by netting a brace (he came before the start of the season from Orlando City). Jesse Marsch’s men have been super inspired in the CONCACAF Champions league as well netting five goals in two legs with Mexican Tijuana to advance into the quarterfinal of the competition without any troubles.
