Real Salt Lake vs New York Red Bulls Prediction
Streak of five consecutive matches without victory in all competitions is worrying all Real Salt Lake fans. They have opened the new season in Florida with a duel against Orlando City, which ended without goals.
Even though we are in the early stages of the season, there is no doubt home coach Frederico Juarez is already feeling pressure. Real Salt Lake ended the previous season in high 3rd place on the West, with strong stats at this stadium – 12 wins in 17 matches. They were also great when it comes to defending, conceding only 15 goals.
New York RB barely managed to defeat Cincinnati at home in the opening match. It is been a while since this team kept a clean sheet. Considering how good Salt Lake can be in the back, we see good value in picking home win here.
