Real Salt Lake vs Los Angeles Galaxy - Prediction, Odds and Betting Tips - 26.09.2019

Real Salt Lake (RSL) currently possess a 78.57% win rate as a home favourite (W11, D1, L2), but LA Galaxy have not lost on the road this MLS season immediately after consecutive home wins. For that reason, amongst others, this is anyone’s game!
Despite winning just one of their last three MLS home games against LA Galaxy, RSL are in fine defensive shape of late, going into the midweek round with the second-fewest home goals conceded (12). In addition, they have taken six clean sheets from their last nine league fixtures at home.
They’ll need to be at their sharpest in the opening 15 minutes of each half, where LA Galaxy have recorded nearly half (47.06%) of their 51 goals this league season. But with both teams scoring in each of LA Galaxy’s last six league matches, the opportunities for goals at both ends could be plentiful.
The first goal could be important, as both RSL and LA Galaxy enjoy some of the best conversion rates in the league when opening the scoring, averaging 2.47 and 2.64 points per game respectively. That said, the last four MLS H2H meetings have produced over 2.5 total goals, with both teams scoring in three.
Players to watch: After missing the trip to New England, veteran midfielder Kyle Beckerman (RSL) will have to tread carefully on his return, having been booked in three of his last four home appearances.
No MLS goalkeeper has made more saves than Galaxy’s David Bingham (134), who retains a very impressive 73.22% save rate after 31 starts.
Stat attack: RSL’s 32 MLS 2019 yellow cards at home ranks amongst the highest in the league.
The team leading at half-time has gone on to win just four of the last seven H2H meetings (drawn half-time results excluded).
LA Galaxy have conceded two or more goals in their last seven MLS away fixtures.
