The Whitecaps made a decent start to the campaign by winning back-to-back games. Things went into the wrong direction since the 4-1 defeat at Atalanta on matchday three and then lost 3 more defeats in the space of four games.

They are currently on a three match losing streak with the most recent a humiliating 6-0 loss at Kansas City. And one of the teams that defeated them during the period is Real Salt Lake on 8th April by a 2-1 margin.

It is not a surprise that RSL have a good record against the Whitecaps at the Rio Tinto Stadium. Also, they were solid in most of the home games this season as well. Since losing to the new boys Los Angeles 5-1 on matchday 1, Salt Lake won their next three home games, including a thumping 3-0 win against the Rapids last week.

However, keep struggling on the road and are win-less after three games. They lost to NYCFC and Toronto by a massive 4-0 and 3-1 margins respectively after earning a point at Dallas. This could continue at the BC Stadium on Friday as well having lost in last five visits here.

Vancouver Whitecaps vs Real Salt Lake: Head-to-head

There are only 2 occasions where the away team had won in their last 19 head-to-head meeting in the MLS. And none in the last 7 – Whitecaps won 4 and Salt Lake won 3 during that period.

Whitecaps won their last five home matches against Real Salt Lake and lost 1 of the last 9 (7W-1D-1L).

Vancouver Whitecaps vs Real Salt Lake: Predictions

The Whitecaps have an excellent home record against Salt Lake and the visitors are a traditionally poor away side. Despite losing three on the bounce including a 2-0 drubbing from the hands of Los Angeles in the most recent home game, the team managed by Carl Robinson must clinch three points here.
