MLS Western Conference table-toppers Seattle Sounders FC host Real Salt Lake at the CenturyLink Field in Seattle on Wednesday night.

Seattle Sounders currently find themselves enjoying a terrific run of form, that has seen them open a three-point gap atop the Western Conference, ahead of Portland Timbers.

However, Seattle Sounders are still in desperate need for full points in every game they play, as they chase Eastern Conference leaders Columbus Crew in a bid to win the MLS Supporters' Shield.

Right now, Real Salt Lank are lingering around the playoff places in the Western Conference, and a win against high-flying Seattle Sounders will do no harm to their confidence as a team.

Seattle Sounders FC vs Real Salt Lake Prediction

Real Salt Lake have been very inconsistent this season, and have shown that they are prone to the occasional defensive collapse, like in their 5-0 loss to the Colorado Rapids.

Seattle Sounders are in great form, they are scoring lots of goals, and at home, you should fancy the Western Conference leaders to secure another win.

Final Prediction: Seattle Sounders FC 3-0 Real Salt Lake
