Real Salt Lake vs Seattle Sounders FC Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Real Salt Lake moved into the top six of the MLS Western Conference following a 2-1 win over Portland Timbers. Albert Rusnak’s brilliant long-range effort provided Real Salt Lake with the lead after just 14 minutes on the clock. Diego Valeri, though, equalised with a goal in his eighth consecutive MLS match. Jefferson Savarino came up with a ‘goal of the week’ contender to give RSL all three points. Seattle Sounders were involved in a fourth consecutive draw, as the team could only get a goalless draw against Dallas. It was a dull game with both teams not having many clear-cut opportunities. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The head-to-head meetings between RSL and Seattle Sounders have witnessed a tremendous amount of dominance from the latter with five wins in six. Yet, Real Salt Lake have had the upper hand when it comes to games at the Rio Tinto stadium after winning five games before the run ended with a draw in the US Open Cup a year ago. This time around, Real Salt Lake carry plenty of momentum and will be able to end Seattle’s 13 game unbeaten run.

The recent five league matches for RSL have been with more than 2.5 goals, and it has been a common occurrence in the head-to-head meetings between RSL and Seattle. Four out of the recent six meetings have been high-scoring matches. I would back this game to end up with more than 2.5 goals.

Real Salt Lake Preview

Real Salt Lake have been able to make an entrance into the top six of the MLS Western Conference table at a crucial time in the season. The club do not have an advantage over Houston Dynamo and FC Dallas – two clubs capable of retaking the position from RSL – in terms of points, but RSL manager Mike Petke will be extremely pleased with his team’s momentum coming into the business end of the campaign. Real Salt Lake have been on a brilliant scoring run in recent weeks, and it has contributed immensely to their momentum. Yura Movsisyan, Albert Rusnak, and Joao Plata have all scored seven goals each to stand top of the RSL scoring charts this season.

Real Salt Lake Team News

Ricardo Velazco (ankle), Omar Holness (cruciate ligament), Jordan Allen (knee), Luis Silva (groin), and Demar Phillips (hamstring) are the players unavailable for Real Salt Lake.

Seattle Sounders FC Preview

Seattle Sounders appear to have lost their momentum, as the club have been involved in four consecutive draws. Only a couple of weeks ago, Seattle Sounders seemed in a great position to finish top of the standings and defend their MLS Cup 2016 title in the play-offs. Yet, Seattle have now dropped to as low as fourth following the latest round of games. The club has managed a single win in the last five games after having won four in the previous five matches. Clint Dempsey is the top scorer at Seattle with 11 for the season.

Seattle Sounders FC Team News

Jordan Morris (hamstring), Chad Marshall (hamstring), Brad Evans (back), and Harrison Shipp (ankle) are the players unavailable for Seattle Sounders.
