CC vs RSLC Dream 11 Team: Real Salt Lake look to get their second win on the bounce against a languishing Columbus Crew side
Real Salt Lake Vs Columbus Crew MLS Best Dream 11 Team
With the race to a spot in the top 7 of the Western Conference heating up as we head towards the culminating stage of the league stage matches, Real Salt Lake know the time is now to grab the initiative. Only the one point behind Houston Dynamo in eight place, a win for Real Lake today would take them into the top half of the table and see them occupy fifth place.
Having registered crucial win in their previous match, RSLC go into their clash today against Columbus Crew today as the firm favourites. They are up against an opponent who has offered nothing to the Eastern Conference this season of the Major League Soccer. Sitting right in the bottom of the league standings in 11th place with just the 5 wins in 18 matches, they are all but out of a spot in the top 7.
This inter-zone encounter holds massive ramifications for Real Salt Lake and expect them to massively up their performances in today’s clash. While both the sides have been an apathy at the back, its RSLC’s ability to find the opponent’s goal which has seen them hanging on by a whisker and staying alive in the tournament. They’ll hurt Columbus Crew massively today who have a serious dearth of well versed performances all around their formation.
With both the sides relatively similar when it comes to the form table this season, scoring and conceding the same number of goals as well, expect this to be a finely poised match. There’s little to separate the two teams at the moment and this cracker of match will be determined by the smallest of margins in the end.
The one thing which slightly edges the match in Real Salt Lake’s favour is their better form at the moment and the fact that a win brings with it a place in the much coveted top 7 spot for them. They’ll up the ante and put in an outright incisive performance to come out with the three points from this one.
Goal-Keeper for CC vs RSLC Dream 11
We are going to go ahead with Columbus Crew’s goal-keeper for this particular fixture only on the sole reason of us expecting their goal to be peppered with shots galore. With us not seeing either side keeping a cleansheet in this one, the save points will be crucial and Crew’s Jon Kempin should amass himself a good bagful of points.
Defenders for CC vs RSLC Dream 11
Having conceded a colossal 55 goals in between them, the identity of these two teams is hardly one which exudes confidence when it comes to the defensive facet. Both the teams have been an apathy when it comes to holding fort in the backline, leaking goals at will which has been the main cause for them failing to ascertain themselves in the league.
And given the shaky nature of the two defences, we have opted for the bare minimum from both the sides. If any side at all have a chance of coming out of this with a cleansheet, it’s going to be RSLC given CC have a horrid 16 goals in their scored column. We are opting for a trio of defenders from the side in the form of centre backs Nedum Onuoha and Justen Glad while attacking right back Aaron Herrera earns a call up as well.
Midfielders for CC vs RSLC Dream 11
The entire frontline of Real Salt Lake makes an advent for us. With an extremely crucial match looming for them, the attacking trio needs to elevate its performance and bear the brunt of putting down a lacklustre Crew side.
Both the wingers Albert Rusnak and Sebastian Saucedo have been opted for by us while we have also roped in CAM Damir Kreilach given his ability to both provide pinch perfect assists and find himself on the end of goals as well. From Crew its Robinho at leftwing who makes a place in our side along with CDM Artur who will be quissential in protecting his backline.
Strikers for CC vs RSLC Dream 11
Both the lone strikers from either side are finding a place in our side. Both the teams should open scoring in this encounter and with a dearth of attacking options upfront, CC’s Jerome Williams and RSLC’s Sam Johnson have not only nailed down a place in the playing 11 but are bound to find themselves get a slew of goal scoring opportunities.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Sam Johnson has been opted for as the captain for this match while Rusnak is the vice-captain.
