There is no time like the present for Real Salt Lake to turn around its season, but to do so, it will have to find a way to beat Orlando City SC when the two sides battle on Friday at Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy, Utah. The Lions (7-6-5, 26 points) face off against RSL (5-11-2, 17 points) in a 9:30 p.m. Eastern time match that will be nationally broadcast on ESPN.
If anyone knows how to succeed in Utah, it’s Orlando City coach Jason Kreis. He played there for two years and coached there for seven. He led Real Salt Lake to MLS Cup glory in 2009, and Friday he will return to Rio Tinto Stadium hoping to defeat his former club. “The altitude causes some consideration,” Kreis said. “Just like every other team in this league, on their day can be very, very good.
“We need to treat this opponent with the utmost respect. I don’t think that should be hard to do walking into this game off of a 4-0 drubbing. Our team should be very focused and should be intent on providing a better performance.”
Orlando City suffered one of its worst defeats of the season last week, falling 4-0 in Chicago, and is winless in its past six MLS road games. During those matches, the Lions have been outscored 13-3.
Real Salt Lake’s year has been pretty tough, including an early season coaching change, and the club is coming of a 2-1 loss to the San Jose Earthquakes, which is led by an interim coach. RSL has one win in its past four games, struggles with a leaky defense and is second to last in the Western Conference. The club has found success at home, however, where RSL is unbeaten in its past three games.
The teams last played in March 2016 and the game ended in a 2 – 2 draw. Before that they played in July 2015 and that game ended in a 1 – 1 draw.
Real Salt Lake are tenth in the Western Conference with 17 points having won 5 games, drawn 2 and lost 11. They are one point below Minnesota United.
Orlando City are fourth in the Eastern Conference with 26 points having won 7 games, drawn 5 and lost 6. They are four points below NYC FC.
A 1 – 1 draw is the most likely outcome with William Hill and Bet365 offering odds of 13/2 and 11/2 respectively.
William Hill Odds: 21/20 Real Salt Lake to Win, 12/5 for a Draw and 9/4 Orlando City to Win
