Real Salt Lake
Real Salt Lake is one of teams in the MLS that had a poor start of the season but then gradually improved. They had one six-game unbeaten streak, while lately they play variably. Wins and losses have interchanged in four previous rounds and they didn’t draw for a quite some time. They play far better at home where they won ten times, while outside their stadium they won only three times. They lost to Portland 1-0 away in the previous round after luckily winning Colorado in front of their fans. We expect that forward Johnson returns to the starting line-up.
Probable lineups Real Salt Lake: Rimando – Herrera, Onuoha, Glad, Toia – Rowe, Everton Luiz – Savarino, Rusnak, Johnson – Kreilach
San Jose Earthquakes
San Jose bears a lot of similarity with their hosts. They too had a bad start of the season when they lost first four matches, after which they managed to pull themselves together. Also, San Jose plays much better at home and just like Salt Lake they won 10 such matches and only three away. The Earthquakes also didn’t draw for a while, and the difference is that they won two previous matches. They won Vancouver 3-1 and Orlando 3-0. Forward Wondolowski is in great shape and regularly scores goals. We don’t expect changes in the starting line-up compared to the previous round.
Probable lineups San Jose Earthquakes: Vega – Thompson, Jungwirth, Kashia, Lopez – Yueill, Judson – Espinoza, Erikson, Qazaishvili – Wondolowski
Betting Pick: Real Salt Lake vs San Jose Earthquakes
There are many similarities between the two teams and they are of equal quality but both play much better in front of their fans. That is why the home-field advantage could be the key factor here and we forecast that the Salt Lake wont’ lose.
