DC United vs Real Salt Lake Lineups & Team News

DC United

The 2022 Major League Soccer campaign was hard to stomach for DC United’s fans. The team ended up at the bottom of the table in the Eastern Conference. However, coach Rooney didn’t need much time to adjust and now, we see DC United sitting comfortably in 8th position with 23 points to their name.

Predicted lineup – Miller (GK), Birnbaum, Palsson, Pines, Santos, Canouse, O’Brien, Durkin, Klich, Fountas & Benteke

Real Salt Lake

If our DC United vs Real Salt Lake City predictions succeed, it will probably be due to the visitors’ inconsistency. Coach Pablo Mastroeni’s boys rank 11th in the Western Conference. The only three teams with a worse momentum are San Jose Earthquakes, Austin, and LA Galaxy.

Predicted lineup – MacMath (GK), Brody, Silva, Glad, Hidalgo, Luna, Loffelsend, Ruiz, Gomez, Kreilach & Musovski

Player to Watch: Jefferson Savarino

26-year-old Savarino is a key threat for DC United on Sunday. That’s what Football Whispers’ soccer experts say. The winger is coach Pablo Mastroeni’s key weapon in attack in the 2023 Major League Soccer campaign.

With four goals to his name already, he’s putting teammates Rubio Rubin and Danny Musovski to shame. We are sure that he’ll be a major threat to our DC United vs Real Salt Lake predictions but we’ll have to wait and see if he can perform well away from home as we already saw him struggle in the previous few visits in MLS.
