Real Salt Lake vs Sporting KC Lineups & Team News

Real Salt Lake

Currently in 2nd place in Major League Soccer’s Western Conference, coach Pablo Mastroeni’s players proved time and time again why we consider them favorites in our Real Salt Lake City vs Sporting KC prediction. Real Salt Lake City recorded a whopping 13 wins this season – the only team with more victories is St. Louis City.

Predicted lineup – MacMath (GK), Vera, Glad, Brody, Oviedo, Palacio, Ojeda, Gomez, Luna, Savarino & Arango

Sporting KC

Sporting Kansas City are definitely not enjoying their best days, as the team is about to miss out on the final series playoffs. The last visit was at CITYPARK and it didn’t end well, as newly established St. Louis City emerged victorious after a brutal 4-1 beating.

Predicted lineup – Melia (GK), Ndenbe, Fontas, Rosero, Davis, Thommy, Gutierrez, Radoja, Salloi, Pulido & Shelton

Player to Watch: Cristian Arango

Real Salt Lake City’s fan-favorite is the player to watch in our Real Salt Lake vs Sporting KC prediction, as he had a very solid game against Los Angeles a couple of days ago. The 2022 Major League Soccer winners got pipped 0-1 at BMO Stadium and it was Cristian Arango’s goal that made all the difference in the World for coach Pablo Mastroeni. If the home team’s top goalscorer this season maintains his form, we are sure that Sporting KC will go home empty-handed.
