Two teams in mid-table in the MLS Western Conference clash in Minnesota on Sunday night, as Minnesota United welcome Real Salt Lake to the Allianz Field.

Both sides come into the game on the back of contrasting results, as Minnesota lost 2-1 to Columbus Crew in their last game.

As far as Real Salt Lake are concerned, they beat Los Angeles Galaxy 2-0 in their last game, to end a run of wretched form. They will now hope to carry that momentum forward into a spell of sustained good form.


Minnesota United vs Real Salt Lake Head-to-Head

Minnesota United and Real Salt Lake have met each other in eight games in the past. Real Salt Lake have won just once against Minnesota, who have beaten RSL five times. The two teams have played out two draws in the past.

The last time these two teams met was earlier this month, when Minnesota cruised to a 4-0 win over Real Salt Lake.

Minnesota United vs Real Salt Lake Prediction

Minnesota United only recently managed to get the better of Real Salt Lake, but have managed to win only one of their four games since that.

Real Salt Lake will be high on confidence, after a sensational 2-0 win over the Galaxy in their last game in the MLS.

In terms of the momentum, Real Salt Lake have built up a head of steam, but their overall form still isn't convincing enough for them to get past Minnesota in this one.

Prediction: Minnesota United 1-1 Real Salt Lake
