GK: David Ochoa
DEF: Justen Glad, Donny Toia, Marcelo Silva, Cristian Gutierrez, Ranko Veselinovic
MID: Albert Rusnak, Damir Kreilach, Caio Alexandre
FW: Rubio Rubin, Lucas Cavallini
Rubio Rubin: Rubio Rubin will lead the Real Salt Lake strikers line-up. He has netted 4 goals in 6 matches and is an obvious captaincy pick.
Lucas Cavallini: Cavallini has scored once and created two goals so far in a miserly Vancouver attacking line-up and will be key against the gritty Real Salt Lake defence
Damir Kreilach: Damir Kreliach is the midfield general of Real Salt Lake and will pose a tough challenge to Vancouver in the midfield. He has scored 3 goals and made 3 assists so far in the MLS.
Clean-sheet: Vancouver Whitecaps have struggled to get the goals throughout their current MLS campaign and Real Salt Lake goalkeeper David Ochoa is highly likely to keep a clean sheet.
First-scorer: Rubio Rubin is expected to find the back of the net for Real Salt Lake against a lowly Vancouver side.
Vancouver Whitecaps have found it difficult to score goals. They have only managed to find the back of the net 6 times in 7 games while Real Salt Lake have scored 9 goals in 6 games so far, and are slated to come on top in the game solely based on Vancouver’s lacklustre scoring prowess.
