Real Salt Lake vs Colorado Rapids
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Monday, 13 July 2020
Kick-off at 03:30 UK/ 04:30 CET
Venue: ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.

The Claret and Cobalt had finished third in their conference in 2019, just three points behind eventual champions, Seattle Sounders. They have also been one of the best teams in the MLS for the past several years, and are usual contenders to make deep runs into the playoffs.

On the other hand, Robin Fraser’s men are one of the worst in the league, and they expectedly finished in the bottom tier of the Western Conference last season. They obviously missed the playoffs, and conceded the second-most number of goals in the West.

Moreover, they have always struggled in h2h clashes against this opponent as well,

As such, anticipate a Real Salt Lake win this Monday.

Real Salt Lake vs Colorado Rapids: Prediction

The Claret and Cobalt are one of the best teams in the MLS, and they certainly are the strongest team in Group D. They are also on a three-game winning run against this rival, and they have scored a total of 25 goals from the past nine h2h fixtures.

Moreover, it’s been three years since they have lost against this rival, and Fraser’s men last won on the road against this rival back in 2007.

Finally, Fraser’s men are also one of the worst teams in the West, and in the whole MLS as well. Taking into account these observations, expect a great performance from Real Salt Lake this Monday.
