Real Salt Lake vs Sporting Kansas City
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 30 June 2019
Kick-off at 03:00 UK/ 04:00 CET
Venue: Rio Tinto Stadium (Sandy).
Kansas City is trying their best to climb upwards from the bottom tier, with some consistent performances in recent games. They were unbeaten in four of their last five league matches and is currently on a streak of three ties without losses. The last day they managed to record a win despite being on the road against Columbus Crew, with a single goal.
Salt Lake, on the other hand, has entered a period of complacency, with them staying away from a victory in their last three tries. They took on Chicago Fire from the Eastern Conference on the road, just the previous day.
Though the visitors invited some early pressure by conceding a goal in the 5th minute, they held their nerves to register the equalizer in the 33rd minute, and then defended against the hosts for the rest of the time, to post one point on the board.
Real Salt Lake vs Sporting Kansas City Head-to-head (h2h)

- Eight of the last ten clashes at this venue had goals at either end of the pitch.
- Nine of the last twelve wins at this venue went to the hosts.
Real Salt Lake vs Sporting Kansas City Prediction
Salt Lake will be aiming to make full use of this home game, to put an end to their recent struggles. Despite their off-form on the road, at home, they had won three of their last five attempts and found the back of the net in 18 of their last 19 such appearances.
On the other hand, in spite of their win the last day, Sporting was winless in 13 of their last 15 battles and was so in ten of their last eleven on the road.
Importantly, at home, Salt Lake recorded nine of the last twelve h2h wins.
As things stand, we can count on the home team to put on a great display. Coming to goals though, Sporting netted goals in 12 of their last 14 away fixtures, and in 16 of their last 20 overall matches. Moreover, 11 of the last 14 h2h encounters had goals from both teams, and so did eight of the last ten at this venue. Considering these stats, it’s logical to expect both sides to find goals.
