MLS action on Sunday as RSL and Caps meet at Rio Tinto Stadium – 5:00am GMT.

Ninth placed Caps, are away to fifth placed RSL on Sunday.

Real Salt Lake have so far accrued 37 points in this season of the MLS

Pablo Mastroeni will not wish to see his side lose three matches in a row, so they will doubtless go into this match, determined to change their recent, disappointing run of form.

Also, suffering four losses in eight matches is a terrible run of form for any club, Pablo Mastroeni’s RSL will know this and will be hopeful of turning it around. With a fifth position in the league and 0 wins, 0 losses and 0 draws, they currently have 37 points in the League.

If odds are anything to go by, Caps cannot expect to get a good result of their trip to RSL. This is particularly true, given both team’s form. RSL have won seven games, drawn three meetings, and lost two fixtures at home this season.

Winning this fixture will see Real Salt Lake on 40 points.

Vancouver Whitecaps arrive at this meeting, having secured 33 points so far this season

Following two straight wins for Caps in their most recent games, they will be keen to continue that form going into this fixture.

Also, Caps’s League position speaks for itself, as The Village continue their rich vein of winning form. Their last win, was the 1st in a row. Now they have 0 matches won, 0 games lost and 0 duels drawn; that’s why they currently sit in ninth place, with a total of 33 points.

With a poor record on the road, which amounts to two wins, three draws, and eight defeats, it is hard to predict a positive outcome for Caps as they travel once more.

A win in this fixture would take Vancouver Whitecaps’s points to 36 in the League.
