Real Salt Lake vs Nashville: Free Fixture Tips

Our soccer tips are free from bias and premised on extensive research and stats analysis. As usual, the following are our top three picks for this fixture:

Note: Odds for Real Salt Lake vs Nashville are correct at the time of writing. But because odds change frequently, please confirm with the bookmaker before placing your bet.

Goals on Both Ends

Backing both teams to score comes with a price of 8/11, which is a value bet in our opinion. While these teams haven’t played against each other hence making it hard to predict the scores, a review of recent games gives us a plausible argument. Nashville has scored in three of their last four games. They found the net twice in all three games. Moreover, Real Salt Lake has scored in all the three MLS games played so far, averaging two goals per match.

Victory for Real Salt Lake

We are also predicting Victory for Real Salt Lake. The hosts have a 67% of winning chance this game. They are a much-experienced side in MLS and playing Nashville at home wouldn’t come with a lot of hurdles. While Real Salt Lake doesn’t concede a lot of goals, Nashville’s defence is quite unpredictable coming into this fixture. Moreover, the visitors are travelling for the first time this season, and outmaneuvering Real Salt Lake that plays their third home fixture on Sunday would be tricky. Bouncing back from last week’s home loss is top of the agenda for tactician Freddy Juarez and we fancy him to get the three points.

Rubio Rubin to Find the Net

Because we are backing Real Salt Lake to win the game, we’re also backing their top scorer, Rubio Rubin to lead the attacking line and score. Rubio Rubin has three goals in the two games. We fancy him to net again on Sunday.

Match Preview: Real Salt Lake Hopes for the Second Home Victory in the New Season

This is a fixture between two teams that haven’t played against each other. Moreover, the hosts haven’t played away since the start of the season. Find out more in our game preview below.

Real Salt Lake

Real Salt Lake has played two games at home, winning one and losing the other. They welcome Nashville after a 2-1 home loss to San Jose Earthquakes a few days ago. So far, the hosts have netted four times at home and keeping that record going is probably one of Freddy Juarez plans in the Sunday fixture. If Real Salt Lake scores on Sunday, and possibly find the net first, Nashville will have a hard time breaking through the backline.

Nashville

Nashville faces Real Salt Lake for the first time. Something even more interesting is that this will be the first away match for Nashville since the start of the season. The visitors have one victory in their last four home fixtures, drawing the other three. They travel to Rio Tinto Stadium on the back of a 2-0 home victory against the 6th placed New England Revolution. For Gary Smith, a tricky part of this fixture is getting his squad to bag victory on their first away game this season, against a team they are facing for the first time.
