Real Salt Lake take on Minnesota United FC at Rio Tinto Stadium on Sunday
Real Salt Lake will aim to end their three-game winless run in the MLS when they take on Minnesota United FC at Rio Tinto Stadium on Sunday.
The visitors, meanwhile, will be looking to grab their third straight win following last week’s 1-0 victory over FC Dallas.
Real Salt Lake failed to find their feet last time out as they held on for a 2-2 draw with FC Dallas.
With the first half ending in a 1-1 draw, Ryan Hollingshead gave FC Dallas a 2-1 lead in the 83rd minute, but Damir Kreilach restored parity six minutes later.
Freddy Juarez’s men have now failed to win in each of their last three outings, picking up two draws and one defeat.
This dip in form has seen Real Salt Lake fall to 14th place in the league table, two points ahead of Sunday’s visitors.
Meanwhile, Minnesota United FC’s recent resurgence continued as they beat FC Dallas 1-0 last time out.
In a cagey affair, Robin Lod scored a dramatic winner in the 94th minute to hand Minnesota their second straight win over FC Dallas.
Prior to that, Adrian Heath’s side claimed a 1-0 win over the Vancouver Whitecaps to end their four-game losing streak.
Despite this upturn in form, Sunday’s visitors are still languishing at the bottom end of the table. They currently occupy 22nd position in the table, two points above rock-bottom FC Cincinnati.
