Match preview

Will Real Salt Lake's impressive start to the campaign continue?

Last weekend, the Claret and Cobalt couldn't quite find the breakthrough, held to a scoreless draw at Rio Tinto Stadium by Columbus Crew.

Nevertheless, Pablo Mastroeni's men have now taken 16 points from their last eight games, so are up in third in the Western Conference.

For context, RSL have only finished third once in the last seven season, last ending a campaign higher back in 2013.

Thus, it's been a very positive first half of the season for the team from Utah.

The same cannot be said of Minnesota United who come into the weekend down in tenth, two points below the play-off line.

However, the Loons will come into this one flying following a mightily impressive 3-2 victory over LA Galaxy on Wednesday night.

Emanuel Reynoso scoring twice with Franco Fragapane also on target as Minnesota raced into a 3-0 first half lead in Carson.

The Galaxy did fight back at after the interval but, on a night that saw three red cards, the visitors held on at Dignity Health Sports Park.

Before this, Adrian Heath's men had lost three successive matches, making this a vitally important victory.

Now, will they build on that and claim three more precious points at Allianz Stadium?
