Real Salt Lake vs Vancouver Whitecaps: predictions
The Caps are on a real high at the moment, and it looks like they have finally found a difference-maker in attack with the addition of Ryan Gauld.
Salt Lake always seem to have victory within reach, but without their catalyst in midfield Damir Kreilach, scoring chances could be hard to come by without his vision and creativity.
