- Real Salt Lake is without a win in the last four games
- Atlas hasn’t won a single game in their last ten matches
- Both teams haven’t met in any competitive match
With the international break here, clubs are trying to find their rhythm by competing in different friendlies to improve their chances of competing in their respective leagues.
MLS and Liga MX in the Final Stage
The MLS and the Liga MX Apertura are close to the final stage. So, it is close to impossible for teams to turn things around.
However, some clubs have hope that if they can win the remaining games, they will make it into the playoffs. For instance, Real Salt Lake is on the same point as LA Galaxy, with two games.
If they did win their remaining matches, there is a chance that the team would make it, but they need Galaxy to slip up.
So, this club friendly would give them the chance to strategize and develop a better plan that might save their season.
On the other hand, Atlas is a struggling team in the Liga MX Apertura as they are out of the playoffs race. After dominating last season, they would be missing out on the playoffs this year.
With both teams ready to take on each other, we expect some exciting play, even though this is a non-competitive tie.
It should give us some talking points as Real Salt Lake would want to fix loopholes in their games and get a victory to boost the team’s morale for the remaining games of the season.
In that case, join us as we check out this game, do a team breakdown, and give our expert Real Salt Lake vs Atlas prediction.

Real Salt Lake Analysis
Real Salt Lake is one of the teams with a fair chance to make it into the playoffs of the 2022 MLS season. The team is close to LA Galaxy in seventh place as they have the same points.
The only thing separating both sides is the goal difference. LA Galaxy has a better goalscoring ratio compared to Salt Lake City.
As a result, the team needs luck and better results. If they want to make it into the playoffs. They need LA Galaxy to drop points in two of their last three games while they win the remaining.
It is a massive task, but there is hope nonetheless. The team has enough chance to make it, but they’ve got to do better than the last four matches.
Real Salt Lake Goal Streak
They lost three of the four games they played previously. The team scored only one goal in the four games and conceded seven.
It doesn’t look good, as they would be playing LA Galaxy in their next MLS game. A win in that game would take away LA Galaxy’s edge. So, they need this friendly to prepare accordingly.
They would have to do better than their last game. The team needs to take this game seriously as it would help the coach realize what’s missing in the team and how he can fix the loopholes.
So, this much-needed break would help boost Real Salt Lake’s chances of making it into the top zones.
The Liga MX Apertura regular season seems done, and Atlas would be missing out on the playoffs. They would be out even though they won both the previous Clausura and Apertura seasons.
It wasn’t a solid season for the team, and they would have to bounce back once the Liga MX Clausura season starts.
Their soccer stats have been abysmal as they haven’t recorded a win in their last ten games. The team continues to struggle, and they simply have to wait until the season ends.
We expect them to return with a bang in the Clausura season. They have this match and the last game of the Apertura season to sort out whatever has been the problem.
In that case, we expect a special game from the team. It won’t be a walkover for Real Salt Lake. Therefore, soccer betting for this game is pretty tricky.
We expect something out of the ordinary to happen. It should be exciting with different talking points and might help the team record their first win after many weeks of games.
Atlas is an exciting team, but they’ve been on a bad run of form. The team has been struggling. So, we would expect them to do better. It should be a better game for the Liga MX team.
However, playing against a team like Real Salt Lake would put a lot of pressure on the team and make them push for a better result.
Real Salt Lake vs. Atlas Pick and Prediction
Although this is not a competitive game, we expect both teams to put in some seriousness as it would help prepare them for what is to come.
For Atlas, it is a good way to prepare for the Liga MX Clausura season. Meanwhile, Real Salt Lake will use it as a chance to build a formidable team as they prepare to play LA Galaxy.
Who to Bet On?
Real Salt Lake vs Atlas prediction is tricky because we can’t say how the game would go since there is nothing at stake. It is all down to how the teams want it and who would want the win the most.
Both teams would want to win, but we think Real Salt Lake needs the win more. In that case, our soccer picks for this tie is Real Salt Lake to win and over 2.5 goals.
