DC United vs Real Salt Lake Match Preview
As we predicted, DC United maintained their unbeaten record for the new MLS season last weekend – but they may have to settle for a point again this time around.
We got odds of 23/20 for Wayne Rooney and Co to avoid defeat away to New York City and they did just that in a 0-0 draw, which means goalkeeper Bill Hamid and his defence have yet to concede a goal in this campaign.
But Real Salt Lake have also started promisingly, by following their opening 1-1 draw away to Houston Dynamo with a 1-0 victory against Vancouver Whitecaps at home courtesy of an Albert Rusnak penalty.
The team from Utah reached the play-offs last term and beat Los Angeles FC before falling to Sporting Kansas City and besides Slovakia international playmaker Rusnak, they also have another ex-Manchester City player in their side in former QPR defender Nedum Onuoha.
At this early stage of the season, teams are still finding their feet and rather than taking a short price about DC United here we believe the odds for the draw have much more appeal.
