Real Salt Lake Preview
Led by a last minute replacement midfielder Yordany Álvarez looked possessed out there. Álvarez’s full contributions may not show up on the stat sheet, where he had two shots, two fouls committed and a foul suffered. But they are there for the most important stat: the 2-0 score line.
“I feel more confident, more confident with the ball, and I thought I played good,” Álvarez said. “I think I played my best game [with RSL].” With Beckerman eligible to play this Friday against the Vancouver Whitecaps, Álvarez will almost certainly return to the bench. But it is comforting for the team to know the Cuban is ready and able to fill in when called upon.
“I thought he was very solid, won some tackles for us,” said midfielder Will Johnson. “It’s great when he can step in for Kyle to do a great job like that. … He stepped in and made a difference.” RSL was sound as usual on the defensive side as well. Stopping the Colorado offense, Alvarez was also significantly better at linking the defense with the offense.
The 3rd place Whitecaps come into this match looking to make some noise and a push into Rio Tinto Stadium. Whitecaps (9-6-7) snapped a four-match winless streak, as it defeated San Jose for the second time in three meetings this season. The Whitecaps defeated the Earthquakes, 2-1, at BC Place on May 5. San Jose won at home on April 7, 3-1. Newly acquisition Dane Richards scored his first goal for Vancouver in the 20th minute and Alan Gordon equalized before halftime for San Jose, but Robson made no mistake from the spot for his second goal in as many games.
Real Salt Lake Vs Vancouver White Caps Predictions: RSL 2-1 Over Vancouver
This will be a great match to watch as the number 2 and 3 teams clash. But, RSL at home will be tough to beat. Look for RSL’s Alavarez to put on another show as he goes head up with Whitecaps Dane Richards . In the end I see RSL controlling this match .It will be low scoring but great tempo.
