- Real Salt Lake failed to score in seven of their 17 matches away from their Utah home last season.
- Five of Real Salt Lake’s last six matches in MLS have featured under 2.5 goals.
- Both teams scored in only 17 of Minnesota’s 34 matches last season.
Minnesota United continue winning run
Minnesota United left it late in their MLS is Back Tournament opener, netting in the 93rd and 98th minutes to see off Sporting Kansas City and they should be full of confidence going into their clash with Real Salt Lake
United already made a superb start to the regular MLS season earlier this year, beating Portland and San Jose by an aggregate scored of 10-4 and they should have the attacking firepower to get past Salt Lake.
Real Salt Lake managed to beat Colorado 2-0 last time out but scored only once across their two matches with Orlando and New York Red Bulls earlier this year, emphasising that they are a side reliant on a solid defence.
Both teams scored in only 16 of their 34 league matches last season so the likelihood is this will be low-scoring. Minnesota United to win is the best match prediction and given they kept 11 clean sheets in the 2019 MLS, 1-0 is our correct score prediction.
