Our prediction for this MLS match:
Columbus Crew take on Real Salt Lake in their first home game of the season. The Crew kicked off the new MLS campaign with a 1-1 draw with Seattle Sounders, with Brian Schmetzer’s troops scoring a late equalizer from the penalty spot. Milton Valenzuela, who suffered an injury against Seattle, is out of contention, but the hosts are surely capable of grabbing something from the Real Salt Lake game.
The Royals shared the spoils with Orlando City and New York Red Bulls in the first two games of the season, and yet another close encounter is on the cards. Considering that Real Salt Lake defeated Columbus Crew 1-0 in their last meeting in the Major League Soccer, we are tempted to put our money on under 2.5 goals. Croatia international Damir Kreilach is likely to lead the line for the visitors.
