Real Salt Lake vs Philadelphia Union
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 14 July 2019
Kick-off at 03:00 UK/ 04:00 CET
Venue: Rio Tinto Stadium (Sandy).
Philadelphia is trying their best to stay at the top of the table in the East while being chased by DC spiritedly. Still, the former possesses a five-point lead and has lost just a single game in their last five attempts in the league.
It needs to be mentioned that, in the East, Philly easily takes the cake as the best offense in the business. They have recorded the most number of goals, and most number of wins by a distance. And importantly, despite lagging in away ties, they are still the best road squad in the conference.
The team might have their task cut out for them though this Sunday. Salt Lake is a worthy enough contender at home and is on a live streak of four wins on the trot in that setting.
Also, with them struggling to make an impact in away fixtures, this tie becomes crucial for them.

Real Salt Lake vs Philadelphia Union Prediction
Salt Lake is on a winning streak of four games at home, and recorded two or more goals in three of them. Also, they avoided a loss in 15 of their last 20 home ties.
Going on, the team has failed to perform well on the road these days, and as such will be particular to make this tie count.
Helping their cause is the fact that Philly was winless in seven of their last ten games, and in four of their last five. They also conceded two or more goals in five of their last ten encounters.
In addition, at this venue, Real holds a 100% unbeaten record in h2h ties, and have never failed to score. As such, expect the hosts to have the upper hand this weekend. But do understand that the guests are no pushover.
They are the toppers of the conference, and despite their dip in form, is the best road squad too. Moreover, they have netted goals in 14 of their last 15 match-ups, and in eight of their last ten on the road.
By all means, expect goals at either end of the pitch for this game.
