We have an intriguing tie in MLS's Wester Conference as Austin FC face Real Salt Lake.
Austin FC currently sit 8th in MLS's Western Conference with five wins, four draws and six losses from fifteen games this season.
They're coming into this game in pretty solid form having won three and lost two of their last five matches, the most recent of which was a 2-1 win over Minnesota United.
The win over Minnesota brought an end to a two-match losing streak and was an important three points, so they'll now be hoping to use that as a springboard to further victories.
Their form at home has been decent lately too, with Austin winning two of their last three games on home soil.
Austin have been mediocre both defensively and offensively of late having conceded five goals in their last five games while scoring six in their last five.
Neither record is terrible, but they'll want to improve on both fronts going forward.
They're currently out of the play-off spots on goal difference only so they're well positioned heading into the second half of the campaign, but they need to become more consistent to ensure they secure a spot in the top seven.
Real Salt Lake currently sit 12th in MLS's Western Conference with four wins, four draws and seven losses from fifteen games this season.
RSL have been up and down this season but they have improved following a poor start as they look to kick on and force their way into the play-off spots.
They're coming into this game amidst a solid run of form having won two, drawn two and lost one of their last five matches, the most recent of which was a 2-3 defeat to LA Galaxy.
Their form away from home, though, is very encouraging heading into this encounter with RSL having won three and drawn one of their last four games on the road while going unbeaten in their last six away games.
Austin have won each of the last three head-to-head encounters between these sides so they'll want to get some revenge here and they should see this as a good opportunity.
Austin are there for the taking and RSL might just be primed to take advantage of that.
For our Austin vs. Real Salt Lake prediction, we're going for a 2-1 win for the away side.
