Our prediction for this MLS match:
Real Salt Lake and Portland Timbers go head to head at Rio Tinto Stadium on Thursday morning. Real Salt Lake aim to make amends for a 2-1 loss to Vancouver Whitecaps where the two sides were level on both goal attempts (8) and shots on goal (3). The Royals were more than unfortunate not to grab something from their last league match, but they are surely capable of making life difficult for Portland Timbers at home ground.
It has to be noted that the likes of Garcia, Luiz, Onuoha, and Rossi have all been tested positive for coronavirus, while Rusnak in on the international duty with Slovakia. As for Portland, the visitors are eyeing their sixth consecutive win in the MLS, but beating the Royals on the road is easier said than done. The likes of Asprilla (knee injury), Blanco (knee injury), and Bodily (thigh injury) and Polo (national selection) are sidelined for the visitors.
