It’s Home Sweet Salt Lake Home

Real Salt Lake made it 10 straight home matches without defeat this season, 3-0 over Sporting Kansas City this past Sunday. RSL are one of two teams without a home loss this season. It’s the fourth time in team history they’ve been unbeaten in their first 10 home games of a campaign.

Sergio Cordova, Pablo Ruiz and Jefferson Savarino were the scorers in that shutout victory. With that goal, and an assist, Savarino contributed to five goals in his first four home starts since rejoining the team. He’s considerably more effective when playing at home, 20 of his 25 regular-season goals have been scored at Rio Tinto Stadium.

Defensively, the Claret and Cobalt have had some inconsistencies, which is why they declined to extend the loan option for SK Beveren left-back Chris Kablan. That also means more opportunities for academy players.

Besides their unbeaten record, only one of RSL’s 10 home games finished a goalless draw. In other words, you can expect a highly-charged affair. They are deserving to come in as the betting online favorites.

FC Dallas Needs a Victory

Last Saturday, FC Dallas drew, 1-1, to Austin FC. Considering the Green Machine are the top scoring team in the league and fighting for the lead in the conference, that wasn’t a bad result. However, it was also their seventh consecutive game without winning.

Dallas have actually led in all four of its draws in that span, conceding equalizers in the final 11 minutes of each.

Even so, the Burn are only four points behind RSL, meaning a victory could boost them to fourth in the West.. That can’t help but motivate the club, with two of the leading MLS scorers. Jesus Ferreira has scored 11 goals, while Paul Arriola has nine. Dallas are the only team with two players among the top 10 in scoring.

The visitors are priced at +250.
