Vancouver Whitecaps vs Real Salt Lake Predictions
Two teams with similar dynamics face off with Vancouver not having won any of their last seven games and Salt Lake having won only one of their last eight games. In addition, despite Salt Lake’s overall record this season, both are defensively very weak at the moment and have conceded at least one goal in recent matches.That is why we think this match could end in a draw.
Despite both teams’ poor form in defense, we don’t expect this to be a high-scoring match as neither team is known for their offensive skills either. Indeed, we think the match could end with less than 2.5 total goals.
