Leon odds: +195 – 32.0%

Draw odds: +235 – 26.0%

Real Salt Lake odds: +130 – 42.0%

Real Salt Lake are the expected winners with a 42.0% win probability at +130 and the home-field advantage is probably playing a vital role here, as there’s no denying Leon is the better of the two teams at the moment. Coach Larcamon’s boys contain a 32.0% win probability ahead of Friday’s game, so Mastroeni and his troops shouldn’t underestimate their Mexican rivals under any circumstances.

Leon vs Real Salt Lake Lineups & Team News

Leon

As we mentioned earlier in our Leon vs Real Salt Lake City predictions, the Mexicans’ experience when facing US teams will play a vital role on Friday. Not only did coach Nicolas Larcamon’s boys defeat the 2022 Major League Soccer champions in the CONCACAF Champions League final, but they conceded barely a goal in 180 minutes of soccer.

Predicted lineup – Cota (GK), Barreiro, Frias, Tesillo, Romero, Rodriguez, Moreno, Hernandez, Mena, Davila & Fernandez

Real Salt Lake

The only good thing we can say about Real Salt Lake’s recent performances is that the team is performing very well when it comes to games at America First Stadium. The last game that was lost was the MLS match versus Los Angeles Galaxy on the 1st of June.

Predicted lineup – MacMath (GK), Eneli, Vera, Glad, Oviedo, Ojeda, Ruiz, Savarino, Luna, Musovski & Arango

Player to Watch: Danny Musovski

The game at America First Stadium would be very interesting to watch, as we’ll see the Rodolfo Cota vs Danny Musovski battle. Will the veteran goalkeeper’s catlike reflexes prove decisive for Leon once more or will Musovski’s natural goalscoring instincts get the better of his Mexican rival?

We’ll find out soon enough, but one thing is certain – Danny Musovski is a key threat to our Leon vs Real Salt Lake City predictions. After all, he scored five goals for his club in Major League Soccer this season.
