Real Salt Lake review – Can Salt Lake recreate their previous stellar performance?

Last time out RSL was able to put 4 goals past Colorado in a 4-1 victory. A result that was more than needed after 2 consecutive games without scoring.

Our betting prediction:

(odds taken 1500 GMT, Wednesday 26th August 2020)


Where the side is being let down is creating and scoring chances. 7 goals in 6 games is not the return of a side that will go far in the regular season let alone the postseason. The likes of Albert Rusnak (1 goal) will have to start producing more in order to help out the clubs top scorer Damir Kreilach with 3 goals in 6 matches.

The advantage going into this game is the fact that RSL boasts the joint 2nd best defense in the league. Conceding only 4 goals in 6 matches is only matched by Seattle in 2nd and FC Dallas who have only played 5 games thus far.

In those 6 games the side have managed to keep 3 clean sheets, shutting out the opposition completely. Something they will have to do effectively if they stand a chance of getting a positive result against Los Angeles on Thursday evening.


Los Angeles FC Review – Can high scoring LA work on their defensive problems?

Any side that has scored 15 goals in 6 matches should be near and around the top of the table. However in LA’s case they find themselves in 5th position. Not a bad position to be in but for the high flying attack they have, this was not where they expected to be at this point in the season.

LA has the advantage of having the league’s hottest property in their squad. Diego Rossi has 6 goals in 6 starts along with 2 assists. But the worry for clubs, especially for Salt Lake in the next fixture is that LA possesses the likes of Bradley Wright-Phillips and Carlos Vela in their squad who have 5 goals between them.

What has stifled their early success so far this season is the 12 goals conceded in the process. Two 3-3- draws and a 2-2 draw have not only impacted their league position but the confidence in the back line as a whole. Teams know that no matter how many goals LA score they are always susceptible to concede also.
