Seattle Sounders v Real Salt Lake - Sunday 21:00, Sky Sports 4
After four straight wins, Seattle have picked up just one point from their last two to drop down to 5th in the Western Conference and aren’t guaranteed a playoff spot as Portland are just a point off them in 7th. Salt Lake are a point ahead of Seattle in 4th in what is a tightly packed middle of the table with just one game of the regular season remaining.
Seattle have won five of seven unbeaten home games and have kept a clean sheet in their last three at CenturyLink Field. Indeed, high-flyers Galaxy, New York City and Colorado are the only sides to beat them in their last 14 at home and since they beat Salt Lake themselves 2-1 not long ago, we expect them to repeat the trick and are backing them to win.
Indeed, RSL are winless in their last five, scoring just once in that time and since Seattle are in excellent defensive form at home, we’re backing them to win to nil and climb above Salt Lake to finish in 4th in the Western Conference.
