MLS Preview: Real Salt Lake - Vancouver Whitecaps

Can anyone beat Real Salt Lake?

On Saturday, the Vancouver Whitecaps will have their shot as the Canadians travel to Rio Tinto Stadium to face Major League Soccer's lone undefeated side. The 'Caps have been impressive in their own right, although they are currently mired in a three-game winless streak that has taken some shine off an otherwise good start to the season.

For RSL, the contest with Vancouver brings about another opportunity to extend its unbeaten run. Despite not having lost in 2014, the Utah side is still only in third place in an ultra-competitive Western Conference. Part of the reason for that is the four draws that RSL has collected in its opening seven matches, although three of those were earned on the road.

At home RSL is a different beast altogether, and traditionally road poor Vancouver will be in for a tough time trying to change that.
