Real Salt Lake take on Portland Timbers at Rio Tinto Stadium in Utah in MLS action on Thursday. The home side have had a poor campaign thus far, with just LA Galaxy below them in the Western Conference. As for the visitors, they are level on points with Seattle Sounders at the top of the Western table. Will the Timbers secure a tenth league victory of the season in midweek?

Real Salt Lake Preview – Claret and Cobalt’s winless run to continue?

Real Salt Lake have picked up just four MLS wins this season. Since beating LA Galaxy 2-0 at Rio Tinto Stadium last month, Claret and Cobalt have taken a mere point from the last 12 on offer.

Real Salt Lake head into Thursday’s fixture having lost three in a row. After defeats to Los Angeles and Seattle, Freddy Juarez’s boys were beaten 2-1 by Vancouver Whitecaps last Sunday.

Our betting prediction:
Portland to be winning at half time & full time

(odds taken 2010 GMT, Tuesday 13 October)

Overall, Salt Lake have won four, drawn six and lost seven of their 17 MLS matches. They are second from bottom in the Western Conference and 22nd out of 26 in the combined table. Having won only one of their past seven – losing five of those – Claret and Cobalt could really do with maximum points in midweek.

Portland Timbers Preview – Savarese’s side to make it six wins on the spin?

In contrast to Real Salt Lake’s poor form, Portland Timbers head to Sandy in terrific shape. They have won each of their last five MLS encounters, seeing off San Jose Earthquakes (twice), Seattle, Vancouver and LA Galaxy in successive games.

Last Monday, the Timbers were far too strong for San Jose at Providence Park in Oregon. Poland man Jaroslav Niezgoda helped himself to a brace, while Chilean Felipe Mora completed the scoring with four minutes to go.
