Both teams to score at Real Salt Lake vs LA Galaxy 2/3 for Thursday’s MLS battle

Posted July 21st, 2021 | By: Tom Dunstan

Competition: MLS

Market: Both teams to score

Odds: 2/3 @ 888sport

In a matchup that could see a string of chances at both ends of the pitch, Real Salt Lake will host LA Galaxy in the early hours of Thursday morning.

Starting with the hosts, slumping back to losing ways over the weekend, Real Salt Lake have continued on what has been a sluggish run of form. In their 12 MLS matchups so far this season, they have recorded four wins, four draws and four defeats, scoring 19 and conceding 14 in return. Managing to muster themselves a points tally of 16, they open the midweek fixtures sat eighth in the Western Conference and with just their goal difference keeping them outside the Final Series places. However, as for their recent run of results, last seen getting hit with a 2-1 defeat away at Los Angeles, Salt Lake have managed to collect just four points from their last five MLS matchups. It should be noted, Thursday’s hosts have seen seven of their last eight contests finish with both teams finding the net.

As for the visitors, also making an immediate return to losing ways over the weekend, LA Galaxy do have the feel of a side seeking some stability. In their 13 MLS matchups since opening the 2021 campaign, The Whites have recorded eight wins against five defeats, scoring 21 and conceding 20 in return. Mustering a points tally of 24 and opening the midweek fixtures sat third in the Western Conference, it should also be noted that they hold the third-best attacking tally in the division. However, as for their recent run of results, last seen getting hit with a 2-1 defeat against Vancouver Whitecaps on the road, LA have lost two of their last three MLS matchups. It should be highlighted, Thursday’s guests have seen five of their last six contests finish with both teams finding the net and we’re backing a similar outcome here.
