Real Salt Lake vs New England Revolution – MLS : With very few rounds to go until the end of the MLS’ regular season
Real Salt Lake is one of the teams that is fighting with all their strength for a spot in the play-offs.
Right now, they are on the top 6, but any slip-up ahead on these final rounds will mean Real Salt Lake will be out of the race. It’s worth pointing out that the team is going through a terrible period: they are winless for 4 matches.
More than not getting victories, they have increased their concerns with their poor last display. Playing at home, they were slaughtered by the Portland Timbers by 4-1.
It was the 2nd loss of the team on these 4 winless matches. They have been a bit lacklustre on both ends.
As hosts, they can be a bit more competitive, but nothing that imposes respect. Real Salt Lake will have to surpass themselves to stay within the top 6.
The manager Mike Petke will have the same core of the last couple of matches at his disposal.
New England Revolution:
New England Revolution took some time to react to their poor moment of form. The team won again on the last round, but it was already too late for them to be able to stay afloat on the fight for a spot in the post-season.
Mathematically, it is still possible, but I highlight that their chances are purely mathematical. Playing another good match here, giving the opposition work and trying to shut down the possibilities of their opponents to advance is what still motivates the New England
Besides the victory obtained on the last round, that same victory happened thanks to their impenetrable defensive system, something that hadn’t happened for a couple of rounds.
Knowing that the pressure is all on the shoulders of their opponents now and that they are far from being in their best moment of form, the New England Revolution are expecting to stay organized defensively in order to affect the composure of their opponents, allowing the team more possibilities to surprise.
As visitors, the New England Revolution have been struggling to stay competitive.
The manager Brad Friedel won’t be able to count with Andrew Farrell, injured. Antonio Delamea and Zachary Herivaux, returning from international duties, are still in doubt for this encounter.
Real Salt Lake vs New England Revolution – Betting Tip and Prediction:
This should be a very tense match. The visiting side, having recovered a bit of their confidence, will play for their honour. But, will they be willing to play without having nothing to fight for?
Real Salt Lake’s problem is their complicated moment of form. The team looks lost on their last performances.
But, still having something to fight for, desperately needing to win, Real Salt Lake still deserves a slight favouritism here.
