USA – 2018 Major League Soccer
Date: Saturday 26th May 2018
Kick off at 22:00 UK/ 23:00 CET
Venue: Century Link Field (Seattle)

The season has not got off to a good start for Seattle Sounders who have lost 5 of their 9 games so far. This form has left the club in 11th place but the good news is that they do have a few games in hand on some of the other clubs around them. They are currently 7 points from a play-off position but being so early in the season this can be made up.

Seattle got off to a terrible start at home as they lost 2 in a row but they have slowly recovered to earn a win over Minnesota and a draw against Columbus Crew.

Real Salt Lake are five points clear of Seattle and have hardly had the best of starts to their league campaign either. Current form is poor where they have lost 3 of their last 4 matches.

Away from home they have the worst record in the league where from 6 games they have lost 5 and drawn 1. So there will be some pressure on Seattle to get all three points against a team that simply do not perform away from home, plus they have only scored 4 goals all season.

Real Salt Lake have such a poor record away from home that we are going to go for Seattle. They started the season poor but have got better week by week and have a great record over Real Salt Lake so we will go for this home win for maximum stakes.
