​USA Major League Soccer -- Real Salt Lake vs FC Kansas City Game Preview

Analysis:

When Real Salt Lake hosts Sporting Kansas City on Sunday, they will put their unbeaten record at Rio Tinto Stadium to the test.

Real Salt Lake

Salt Lake were defeated 2-1 by Atlanta United midweek as a result of two defensive errors, and they subsequently fell to fourth position in the Western Conference standings. This squad has had a strong season thus far. After 20 games, they have 30 points, which is their best regular-season start since 2017.

FC Kansas City

The new season for Kansas City has been disappointing. With 20 points, this typically reliable team is in last place in the Western Conference. Even while their recent play hasn't exactly been exemplary, they pick up four points in back-to-back road games, including their first comeback victory of the year last Saturday, 2-1 over CF Montreal.

Prediction

RSL as a whole is more reliable in all areas of the game, and even though their backline will probably focus on Johnny Russell, they should be able to get through what has, for the most part, been a porous KC defense.


Pick: 1/BTTS
