Match preview

CONCACAF Champions League heartbreak for New York City.

On Wednesday night, NYCFC could only draw 1-1 with Seattle Sounders in the second leg of their Champions League semi-final.

Santiago Rodríguez's equaliser on the night at Red Bull Arena not enough as the Pigeons exited the competition 4-2 on aggregate.

So now, the reigning MLS Cup champions can turn their focus back to domestic matters, looking to climb the Eastern Conference table.

Ronny Deila's side have actually lost their last two league games, 2-0 to Philadelphia and then 2-1 in Toronto, so have just four points and are 12th in the east.

Real Salt Lake meanwhile are flying high in the Western Conference, sat third, below only the two Los Angeles clubs.

The Claret and Cobalt won three on the bounce in March and, more recently, have played out back-to-back draws, most recently 2-2 with Toronto.
