Team News

Columbus
Salt Lake
  • Hector Jimenez and Josh Williams were injury doubts for the game against Toronto FC, but should be fit to face Real Salt Lake on Wednesday.
  • Robbie Findley returns to full fitness for Real Salt Lake after recovering from a knee injury, with Luis Gil and Chris Schuler also recovering from minor knocks.
  • Alvaro Saborio has suffered a fracture in his foot and could even miss the World Cup, with Joao Plata also a doubt for the game against Columbus.

Prediction

  • The Columbus Crew were made to rue a late collapse against Toronto FC at the weekend, conceding two late goals to lose 3-2 at BMO Field. Justin Meram had played one of his best games for the Crew up until that point and has re-energised this Columbus side.
  • After 13 games, Real Salt Lake suffered their first defeat of the MLS season, blowing out 4-0 to the Seattle Sounders. Without Kyle Beckerman, Jess Cassar's side lack its midfield spine and this is a chance for the Crew to exploit that.
  • The Crew stand a real chance of causing an upset, although RSL will be hurting after the Sounders defeat.
