Our prediction for this MLS match:
After suffering a heartbreaking loss to Los Angeles Galaxy in the local derby, Los Angeles FC will be aiming to give fans some cheer when they take on Real Salt Lake at Rio Tinto Stadium. Top scorer Carlos Vela was sorely missed in the Los Angeles derby, and seeing that both Danilo Silva and Eduard Atuesta are injured as well, we are not tempted to put our money on the Black and Gold. The Royals, on the other hand, aim to make amends for a heavy 4-0 loss to Minnesota United.
Real Salt Lake are tough to beat at home, and we predict that they are going to hold Los Angeles FC to a draw. Christopher Garcia is out of contention with injury, but he is the only absentee in the home team ahead of the midweek game.
