Colorado Rapids vs Real Salt Lake Lineups & Team News

Colorado Rapids

Our Colorado Rapids vs Real Salt Lake City predictions receive further backup by the fact that the Rapids got thrashed 5-1 last week. Houston Dynamo showed no mercy, as coach Ben Olsen’s boys obliterated their rivals at home. Colorado Rapids were even lucky to score a consolation goal, as they only had one shot on target.

Predicted lineup – Ilic (GK), Gutman, Maxso, Abubakar, Rosenberry, Ronan, Bassett, Harris, Rubio, Nicholson & Navarro

Real Salt Lake

We have to say, the LA Galaxy vs Real Salt Lake City clash at Dignity Health Sports Park was truly something else. The result on the scoreboard after 90 minutes of play was 2-2, but seeing as we had a total of 36 shots at target produced by the two teams, we could’ve easily seen more goals this week. This only goes to show you that we are on to something with these Colorado Rapids vs Real Salt Lake City predictions.

Predicted lineup – MacMath (GK), Oviedo, Vera, Silva, Brody, Eneli, Palacio, Luna, Chang, Kreilach & Julio

Player to Watch: Cole Bassett

When your partners operating in the attack can’t get the job done, you buckle up and score goals for your team. That’s what Cole Bassett did for the Rapids last week. Sure, shot-stopper MacMath conceded five, but Cole Bassett’s goal was truly something else. He scored a lovely 53rd-minute goal for 4-1 only for Jose Artur de Lima Junior to bag the final 5th for Houston Dynamo in the 84th. Box-to-box midfielder Cole Bassett deserves a shoutout in our Colorado Rapids vs Real Salt Lake prediction, as he’s in top shape for the Rapids recently.
