Austin vs Real Salt Lake Predictions & Tips

Out-of-shape Austin is hosting the clash versus Pablo Mastroeni’s Real Salt Lake on the 4th of June at Q2 Arena. It will be a performance and a half and we can’t wait for the kick-off!

Draw

The good news for coach Josh Wolff is that this will be a second consecutive game at Q2 Arena for his team. Austin certainly feel good playing at home this season.

The bad news is that coach Wolff won’t be able to count on some of his key performers. Playmaker-in-chief Sebastian Driussi is out with a groin injury while chief defender Leo Vaisanen has a torn collateral ligament which will take him out for a while.

Austin’s last match versus Real Salt Lake City at Q2 Arena ended with a draw so it wouldn’t be that shocking if our bold Austin vs Real Salt Lake prediction succeeds.

Over 2.5 Goals

The Austin vs Real Salt Lake City brawl is a rivalry with a growing history. However, the two teams faced each other six times in the past and it’s fair to say this is turning out to be one of the more thrilling MLS matches.

With five matches on the spin ending with over 2.5 goals, we anticipate our Austin vs Real Salt Lake predictions to be a slam dunk. Especially, when you consider the Leo Vaisanen-shaped hole at the back for Austin.

Sure, Austin are the expected winners with a 50.0% win probability at +100 but coach Mastroeni’s boys shouldn’t be underestimated.

Austin vs Real Salt Lake Lineups & Team News

Austin

We hope that injured Driussi can make an appearance on the 4th of June as there aren’t many positive signs leading to an Austin win. Coach Josh Wolff’s boys have been performing below all expectations this season. With four victories, four draws, and six losses in 14 league games, Austin’s display borders on bitter disappointment. With that in mind, we’d like to remind you that our top Austin vs Real Salt Lake predictions say this game will end with the two managers sharing the spoils and that’s exactly what we saw from Austin in three of their last five home games.

Predicted lineup – Stuver (GK), Cascante, Lima, Radovanovic, Lundqvist, Pereira, Djeffal, Gallagher, Rigoni, Finlay & Zardes

Real Salt Lake

Austin and Real Salt Lake City are neck and neck in the Western Conference. Pablo Mastroeni’s side ranks 11th as the team conceded 23 goals – three more than Austin. However, the goalless tie against Portland Timbers on the 18th of May, the 1-1 tie against Minnesota United on the 28th of May, and the two victories over in-form Colorado Rapids are what drove us to these Austin vs Real Salt Lake predictions. If everything goes according to coach Mastroeni’s plans, defeat should be avoided at Q2 Stadium.

Predicted lineup – Beavers (GK), Brody, Vera, Silva, Hidalgo, Savarino, Ojeda, Loffelsend, Gomez, Musovski & Rubin

Player to Watch: Sebastian Druissi

We fancy Sebastian Driussi’s chances to make an impact on the 4th of June and help make our Austin vs Real Salt Lake City predictions a massive success. With 25 goals in 37 games in the 2022 Major League Soccer campaign, Driussi poached the top goalscorer trophy from Philadelphia Union’s Daniel Gazdag. The former averaged 0.68 goals per match last year, and while he isn’t exactly enjoying the best campaign these days, he remains a force to be reckoned with.

Having only three returns in 14 MLS games is definitely not an accomplishment to be proud of so if he wants to keep his starter’s position, he’ll have to work extra hard to make coach Wolff want to use him more often.

We anticipate seeing him in the starting XI on the 4th of June as coach Josh Wolff can’t opt to make any experiments right now. He needs points versus Real Salt Lake City, and relying on top-dog Driussi is probably going to be his best shot.
