Real Salt Lake Team News
Another good season for Real Salt Lake during which they are on the hunt for a place in the playoffs in the Western Conference. Right now, they are 5th on the table with 37 points after 25 games but they are in a not too good run of results.
Even with 5th place right now, Real Salt Lake has only two wins from the last nine games. Because of that, they have one of the worst forms in the MLS.
Real Salt Lake, at the moment, is playing some very interesting football with a lot of goals in their games. In the last eight games, we saw 28 goals which are 3.5 per game. They are eight games without a clean sheet but at the same time, they failed to score in only two games from the last 14. Real Salt Lake is very good at home with only two defeats this season but those two defeats came in the last two games against Los Angeles and Dallas.
Vancouver Whitecaps Team News
Vancouver is also in the hunt for the playoffs in the Western Conference. They are 7th on the table with 33 points after 26 games. But as their rival, Whitecaps are in a bad run too. They won only two games from the last eight, and three from the last 10.
Vancouver has huge problems with their defence because they conceded 17 goals in the last eight games. They have one of the worst defensive records in the MLS and only three teams are worse than them. Vancouver struggles to keep a clean sheet, especially when they play away from home. They have only two clean sheets in 13 games with 29 goals conceded and only two wins.
In Vancouver’s last eight games we saw amazing 29 goals which are 3.62 per game! An unbelievable stat.
The last six games between these two teams are finished with over 2.5 goals and five of them with BTTS.
