03:00, Jul 08 2021
Vancouver Whitecaps vs Real Salt Lake predictions for this MLS clash on Thursday at BC Place. Vancouver want to move up from the bottom of the Western Conference, and to do so they must beat a Real Salt Lake team with aspirations of reaching the playoffs. Read on for our free predictions and betting tips.

Vancouver Whitecaps

Vancouver is currently the worst-performing team in the Western Conference and the fourth lowest ranked team in all of MLS. In 11 games played, they have won only two games; they have scored 12 goals and conceded 18.

Six of Vancouver’s nine total points came at home.

In the last meeting between the two teams, less than a month ago, Vancouver lost 1-3.

Real Salt Lake

Salt Lake come into this match in ninth place after three wins, four draws and three defeats. Salt Lake, along with Colorado, have played the fewest games so far, with only ten matches compared to other teams which have played one, two or even three more matches.

Salt Lake have also conceded the joint-second fewest goals so far – 12 in ten games.

Key Stats

  • Seven consecutive matches without winning for Vancouver, comprising five losses and two draws
  • Vancouver have conceded at least one goal in all of their last seven matches
  • Only one win for Salt Lake in their last eight matches
  • Salt Lake have conceded at least one goal in all of their last five games

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.
