Minnesota United vs Real Salt Lake Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

Minnesota United suffered yet another crushing defeat, as they lost 5-2 to New England Revolution. The opposition took full advantage of Minnesota pushing too many men forward, as Juan Agudelo scored two goals while Kei Kamara, Lee Nguyen, and Chris Tierney scored one each. Goals from Collen Warner and Brent Kallman provided some joy for Minnesota. Real Salt Lake remain winless in the 2017 MLS season, but they would consider themselves lucky to have come away from the game against New York Red Bulls with a goalless draw. Both teams had splendid chances, but Matt Van Oekel was outstanding in goal for Real Salt Lake. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The arrival of Mike Petke provided an instant response in the game against New York Red Bulls, but it was not enough to secure a win for Real Salt Lake. However, they are up against a Minnesota outfit that has conceded 18 goals in four games. I would back Real Salt Lake for a win. Real Salt Lake may have scored just one goal in the four games, but they did create decent opportunities against New York Red Bulls. Minnesota’s poor defence will provide them with multiple opportunities to score. I would back Real Salt Lake to score over 1.5 goals.

Real Salt Lake win – 27/20

Real Salt Lake to score over 1.5 goals – 10/11

Minnesota United Preview

Minnesota have been shocking at the back, and few would have expected such poor performances, even for a new entrant to the MLS. The club has conceded a whopping 18 goals in the four games. Lessons do not seem to have been learnt from the defeats so far, and the future of manager Adrian Heath will come under a lot of question if the poor form persists. Heath has tried to address the issue with several changes to the formation but with limited success. The consolation for the team is their forwards finding some rhythm. Minnesota have scored two goals in each of the last two games.

Real Salt Lake Preview

Real Salt Lake find themselves closer to the bottom of the Western Conference table largely as a result of very poor form going forward. The club has scored just one goal in the opening four games, as they seem to be going through a continuation of last season’s poor form. Real Salt Lake’s last win in the MLS was back in August against Colorado Rapids. The club has scored just four goals in their last 11 games in the MLS. The arrival of Mike Petke as the new manager immediately resulted in a positive performance against New York Red Bulls, although the game once again lacked a positive show from the offence.
