Real Salt Lake are welcoming Vancouver Whitecaps for another important game after their 0-5 result against 10th-placed Colorado Rapids.
There has not been much time to rest for the guests, as they played a Major League Soccer game only three days ago.
This pitch has grass, which is not Vancouver Whitecaps's usual surface at their own ground. When playing on grass Vancouver Whitecaps have performed like this: Played 34 matches resulting in 8 wins, 9 draws and 17 defeats with the goal stats 40-70 (scored/conceded).
These teams have little in common geographically as Vancouver Whitecaps have to travel 1500 kilometers to reach their opponents. The trip home will be especially long if the match ends in defeat.
Real Salt Lake form and stats
Real Salt Lake have collected 9 points from their Major League Soccer home games so far after 2-3-2.
The Real Salt Lake fans got no joy from their last match, a Major League Soccer game also here at Rio Tinto Stadium: A 0-5 defeat against Colorado Rapids (placed 10th). Before that, Real Salt Lake had a home game versus Los Angeles FC which ended with a victory 3-0.
As you see from the result above, Salt suffered greatly in their last game. Thankfully the team has a new chance to prove themselves in this one.
There's a new fixture coming up fairly quickly for Salt, as the Major League Soccer home game vs LA Galaxy is only four days away.
The Salt fans would probably like to see some more goals scored at their own stadium in the league, the tally being 8 in 7 matches. On the other hand, Real Salt Lake have conceded 10 goals.
Vancouver Whitecaps form and stats
There's been little loot from Vancouver Whitecaps's travels as they have only collected 6 points from 6 away games in the Major League Soccer. Vancouver Whitecaps, who have the fewest scored goals (15) in Major League Soccer, only have 2 wins to counter their 4 defeats and 0 draws. The pressure to perform on the road is increasing on M. Dos Santos, the Vancouver manager, as the last three away games were defeats.
Impressive finishing from C. Dájome and F. Montero (2) secured the home win 3-1 against Montreal Impact in their previous game. Preceding that, the 2-4 home loss versus Montreal Impact.
Vancouver has another fixture away, a Major League Soccer game, against Los Angeles FC in just four days. A tough schedule for the visitors!
Goals are few and far between in Vancouver's away league games. Only 3 goals from 6 travels. Vancouver have conceded 9 goals in these games.
Head 2 HeadHead-2-head stats last ten meetings: five - zero - five (Real Salt Lake wins - draws - Vancouver Whitecaps wins). As for goals, five matches ended with three or more goals (over 2,5), five had two or less.
