Real Salt Lake vs Columbus Crew Match Preview
Real Salt Lake ended a four-match winless streak as they beat Sporting KC (2-0) with an early brace from Sam Johnson, which proved enough for their third win in four outings at Rio Tinto Stadium and gives them ground to build on as they host Columbus Crew midway through the week.
Claret and Cobalt have only seen Los Angeles (0-3) snatch points along the way and Mike Petke will want more of the same, as his men look to break into the top 7 – currently sitting just a point behind Minnesota and Houston Dynamo, who do have a game in hand.
Columbus Crew have, on the other hand, struggled to earn such pick-me-ups as Atlanta United snatched a thriller 2-3 US Open Cup win and they failed to bounce from it, seeing both Sporting KC (0-1) and Orland (0-2) snatch the MLS points at MAPFRE Stadium since.
Crew have even more worrying records on the road as they opened the campaign with a win at New England (0-2) but saw six consecutive losses since then, failing to even find the net on four of those occasions. They will now want more but ending such a streak will be no easy task we feel.
We’ll thus rather stick with Real Salt Lake to build on their performances in front of the home fans and back them to secure all three points at 4/6 with Unibet, which has caught the eye of many big hitters already.
We do feel Crew’s struggles to convert their chances on the road will be obvious once again, as we now also stick with Real Salt Lake to keep a clean sheet at 31/20 with Ladbrokes – which would be their third in five home outings since mid-May.
