Rio Tinto Stadium
Real Salt Lake have been living in a nightmare for some time this season after a series of losses. They grabbed their only win on the opening day of the season, and since then it’s been from bad to worse for this team. Charlotte are not having a great season either, but they are not as terrible as the hosts in this match. After losing the first 3 matches of the season, they were able to get back on track with some positive results in the last 3. In this match up, Real Salt Lake will be searching for a second win of the season as they welcome Charlotte FC to the Rio Tinto Stadium for the 7th match of the season. It is a first encounter for both teams and hopefully one of the teams can start with a positive result.Grab Your Signup Bonus

Expert Betting Tips
Real Salt Lake have done little to improve their current situation and they are likely going to keep losing for some time. Charlotte are not excellent, but they are starting to get their groove and picking up 3 points in this match will really boost their confidence. Even considering form, I don’t expect this to be an easy match for the visitors, but we can count on a few goals scored.
