An interesting Western Conference showdown awaits this Saturday, as Real Salt Lake take on FC Dallas at the Toyota Stadium in Frisco Texas.
Real Salt Lake
Real Salt Lake is coming off of a rough outing last time out, as they only managed a 0-0 draw against Nashville with the worst part of that game being the fact that they were unable to register a single shot on target.
That result really does not bode well for them here, as FC Dallas are pretty strong when it comes to defense, so the coaching staff will likely look to mix things up a bit in order to get this offense clicking.
Albert Rusnak is a guy to watch here for RSL, as the young Slovakian has proved to be an excellent play maker in the midfield, and I expect him to flourish and be the main catalyst for this offense when it does start firing on all cylinders.
Look for Rubio Rubin out in front of a likely 4-2-3-1 formation, as he has already scored 3 times this season, and he has the ability to give this FC Dallas back line plenty of difficulties especially if RSL can have success on the wings.
FC Dallas were frankly destroyed in their last game despite only losing 1-0 on a 94th minute goal by Minnesota striker Robin Lod, as they allowed Minnesota to fire off 27 shots at their goal, so that game could have ended with a much different scoreline.
It is often times hard to know how a team will react off of a heartbreaking loss like that, but I expect them to come out strong here, as they are still in a decent position in the West, and have enough talent to make a deep run this year.
Based on the way Dallas lines up we can get a good glimpse of what they are trying to do, as their 3-4-2-1 formation usually allows their to be 7 players at the back, so a defense first mentality is what they are striving for here in 2021.
I do not think they are going to go back to that formation here however, as I think they will look to go back to the 4-2-3-1 that they played against Houston, as it seems like head coach Luchi Gonzalez knows when he needs to go for all three points and I believe his tactics will reflect that here on Saturday.
Free Real Salt Lake vs FC Dallas MLS Prediction:
I think we are getting a pretty solid price on the under here, as even if Gonzlaez goes with a more offensive minded approach I think RSL are going to prove a very tough team to break down. I also see RSL struggling to score here, as they will probably look to defend first in this spot and if they do not concede early we could see a stalemate for the majority of this game which would see this under hit.
