SJ vs RSLC Dream11 Prediction | Major League Soccer | Real Salt Lake vs San Jose, Fantasy Team News

SJ vs RSLC Dream11 Match Preview, Team News, Lineups

Real Salt Lake host San Jose Earthquakes in a crunch match in the Major League Soccer at Rio Tinto Stadium.

With just four points separating 2nd placed Seattle Sounders from LA Galaxy, who have a game-in-hand, every team knows that things couldn't have been tighter in the Western Conference.

Only Los Angeles FC are immune to other results, having accumulated an incredible 63 points in 29 games. While every team from 2nd to 8th could either break into the top-seven or miss out on the post-season.

That said, San Jose Earthquakes were in a far more favorable situation but a four-game winless run last month has brought them right into the hot zone.

Real Salt Lake meanwhile are blowing hot and cold of late, but the four wins in the last six games have propelled them to within 3 points of 2nd place heading into this game.

Match Details:

The Major League Soccer match will be played between Real Salt Lake and San Jose at Rio Tinto Stadium, in Sandy, Utah. The ground has a capacity of 20,213.
The game will start at 07:00 AM (IST), on Thursday, September 12.
