Real Salt Lake vs Atlanta United Match Preview
Real Salt Lake host Atlanta United on the back of a two-match winning streak, hoping to build on the performances and their top 7 spot on the Western Conference table despite another trough challenge at Rio Tinto Stadium looming.
Claret and Cobalt have beaten Colorado Rapids (2-3) and Toronto (3-0) in their last two outings but we’ve seen them struggling to retain consistency at the back and this has proven costly on many occasions – keeping them from connecting any two same results at this ground in 2019.
Atlanta United will now want to capitalize on such troubles and snatch important points in Utah, but they have recuperating to do. They’ve seen a narrow loss at New York Red Bulls end their five-match winning streak and Frank de Boer has to search for a pick-me-up ahead of the trip.
Five Stripes sit just four points behind Eastern Conference pace-setters with a game in hand and we feel this will be enough of a confidence booster by itself, promising the visitors in a great mood and putting on a very tough challenge.
Atlanta have been scoring away goals on the regular and doing so here will be a crucial task, as the visitors look to snatch important points. We do feel they can do so and we’ll now go for an Away win here at 29/20 with bet365, which seems well worth the shot.
Real Salt Lake will have plans of their own and after seeing them bag six goals in their last two outings, we now hope to see them put on a solid challenge and find the net as we go for Over 2.5 Goals FT at 4/6 with Paddy Power. We have seen both sides enjoy such clashes lately and this still looks like value.
