Sunday at Rio Tinto Stadium, as RSL host COLO in the Major League Soccer.

It’s a trip to Rio Tinto Stadium for fifth placed RSL on Sunday, as they take on third placed COLO.

Real Salt Lake’s campaign so far has seen them accrue 39 points this season

RSL must take a positive approach to this game, if they are to get anything out of, following their recent defeat to Austin at Q2 Stadium.

They currently sit in fifth place, with a total of 39 points having won 11 meetings, drawn six games, and lost 11 matches.

RSL have won eight fixtures, drawn four matches, and lost two fixtures of their 14 League matches at home this season.

A victory for Real Salt Lake would put them on 42 points.

It’s 51 points so far for Colorado Rapids this season, going into this fixture

Having lost to Seattle Sounders in their last game, Conor Casey’s men must reset and try to gain a positive result in this match.

Football is a simple game, first don’t lose, and COLO achieved this now in 17 of their last 19 matches. With 51 points, they currently sit third in the League having won 13 meetings, drawn nine fixtures, and lost five games.

COLO’s away record is remarkable and poses a significant threat to RSL. In the 14 games they’ve played on the road this season, they have so far won seven meetings, drawn three matches, and lost four meetings.

Winning this fixture will see Colorado Rapids on 54 points.

The last time both teams met in this competition was August 2021, when Real Salt Lake walked away as 2-1 winners. In the last game between this pair, both sides got on the scoresheet and it’s rated at 64.1% that they both score once more on Sunday.

RSL have a favourable 47.62 percent probability of winning.
