Real Salt Lake and Austin FC come into this match after suffering defeats in their last match. It's matchday 3 of the new MLS season and both teams will want another win to their single win so far. Seattle Sounders lost at home to Real Salt Lake at home in round 2, while Austin FC lost 3-0 against Violette AC in the CONCACAF Champions League knockout stage. 2 wins in the opening 3 matches of the new season will be a good record for both sides, but who will earn that record?Grab Your Signup Bonus!
Real Salt Lake (LWWDW)
Real Salt Lake couldn’t maintain their perfect start to the season despite grabbing a win in the opening match of the season.

Austin FC (LWLDW)
Austin FC also did not have a perfect start to the new season, as they lost 1 and won 1. On the opening day, they lost 3-2 to Saint Louis City at home, but they gave the perfect response by beating CF Montreal 1-0 in the next match. Unfortunately, they couldn’t keep the spirit for much longer, as they lost 3-0 against Violette AC in the CONCACAF Champions League Knockout stage. In that match, they had 59% possession, 1 shot on target and 2 corner kicks. Not a very plausible performance from the Austin team.
In their last 5 matches, Austin FC have 2 wins, 2 losses and 1 draw. Austin are 6th in the Western Conference, with 3 points from 2 matches.
Team Streaks: - More than 2.5 Goals (9/10), First to score (6/8), Less than 4.5 cards (10/10), More than 10.5 corners (4/5).
