Our prediction for this MLS match:
After suffering back-to-back away defeats at LA Galaxy and Portland, Real Salt Lake will be looking to get back on course in MLS when they face Austin on Sunday morning. The Royals will not have a better chance than this to return to winning ways, and we are positive that they will fight tooth and nail against the newcomers. Despite failing to find the net in the defeat to Portland, Rubin should continue to lead the line for the hosts.
It has to be noted that all Brody, Farnsworth, and Ochoa have been struggling through injuries of late. Austin, on the other hand, have been struggling on the travels this season. Josh Wolff’s troops failed to impress in a 2-0 loss at Dallas, and, taking everything into account, we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Real Salt Lake’s party at Rio Tinto Stadium. All Hoesen, Schoenfeld, Segura, and Sweat are likely to miss the game with injuries.
Highlighted Player (Nedum Onuoha):
Nedum Onuoha was born in Warri, Nigeria on 12 November, 1986, but he was brought up in Manchester. He attended Xaverian College Manchester and he was a very good student. He was an outstanding junior sprinter as well and it has to be noted that he won the silver medal at the English School’s Athletics Association Junior 100 metres contest.
Speaking of his football career, he began playing at Manchester City at age 18, scoring three goals in 95 league appearances for the Citizens. He spent the 2010/2011 season on loan at Sunderland and in 2012 he signed a four-and-a-half-year deal with Queens Park Rangers.
Despite the fact that he was born in Nigeria, Onuoha was eligible to play for England and you should know that he has 20 caps for England U21 team. However, he was never given a senior England debut despite being really close on several occasions. Onuoha won the Championship play-offs with Queens Park Rangers in the 2013/2014 season.
