Real Salt Lake vs LA Galaxy.
In Rio Tinto Stadium we have the re-match of last year's final, where Salt Lake beat the Galaxy in the penalties and earned the title. The hosts remained unbeaten for the 6th match in a row, but this time against Washington they did not play well at all and showed some of their weaknesses that are more obvious in some of their away games. They did not deserve the point, Washington were more aggressive since the beginning of the match and thanks to keeper Rimando they got the draw point. Beckerman , Findley and Gonzales are out while Wingert is doubtful.
Los Angeles realized their 5th win in the last 6 matches, beating Houston 4-1 after a great performance. They remain undefeated for 12 consecutive rounds, having the best defence with only 3 goals received up until now. Buddle and Donovan are out.
Selection: This is a great game for the standards of the MLS, with the Galaxy not having issues about home or away games, or even absent players and the hosts putting the pressure on by playing very well in front of their fans. There is a tendency towards the 2 for the Galaxy, but i cannot ignore the 4-1-0 for Salt Lake in their home encounters against Galaxy. I will go with many goals scored, offered with great odds over 2.00. Another possible scenario is for both teams to score. OVER 2.5 goals/Goal:Goal.
