Real Salt Lake vs Minnesota United FC Match Preview, Free Picks & Prediction
A couple of fine results on the run have seen Real Salt Lake move back into the top four in the Western Conference and now they have third placed LAFC in their sights. On Sunday it’s the turn of Minnesota United to make the trip to Salt Lake City, but the visitors arrive having failed to win any of their last five matches and are now twelve points off the play-off places.
Having scored six goals without reply against Colorado Rapids the week before, Real salt Lake would have been full of confidence ahead of their home game against out of form LA Galaxy on the 2nd September, but nobody would have expected another six goals from the play-off hopefuls.
Quintero top scores for the visitors with ten MLS goals this season, but teammate Ramírez isn’t too far behind on seven and Ibarra has chipped in with six goals so far.
Minnesota United have failed to score in their last two games and in each of their last four matches have conceded two goals, which is the worst preparation heading into a game against free scoring Real Salt Lake.
Real Salt Lake News:The hosts still boast one of the worst injury lists in the MLS, with Tony Beltran, Jordan Allen, Alex Horwath, Luke Mulholland, David Horst, Ricky Lopez-Espin, Connor Sparrow, and Marcelo Silva all expected to miss this weekends game.
Minnesota United FC News: Midfielders Sam Cronin, Kevin Molino, and Ethan Finlay have been ruled out of Sunday's game, and they could be joined on the sidelines by Francisco Calvo.
