Real Salt Lake vs Portland Timbers Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

RSL were able to keep their heads above a resurgent LA Galaxy outfit despite the draw with Sporting Kansas City, but Mike Petke’s men have every reason to be concerned about the threat from Galaxy. It is quite incredible that even Portland in the fourth place of the Western Conference cannot be sure of their play-off position due to the highly congested nature of the table. Portland’s away form makes for a grim reading as Giovanni Savarese’s men have lost four out of the last five away games. RSL appeared much more confident and well equipped in the draw with the Wizards that I would go with a home win.

Portland were quite ineffective in the final third of the pitch against FC Dallas and it has been reflective of their recent scoring form with the team managing over 2.5 goals only once in 11 games. RSL may have taken clubs like Colorado and Galaxy for a ride, but they are likely to be cautious in this match since there is a lot at stake.
