Real Salt Lake News Release

HERRIMAN, Utah – Real Salt Lake (6-2-3 / 21 points / 1st West) returns to MLS action this weekend at LA Galaxy, the team looking to rebound from Wednesday night’s 2-4 loss at New Mexico in the 2024 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup Round of 32. Kickoff Saturday night at Dignity Health Sports Park against the Galaxy (5-2-4 / 19 points / 3rd West) is at 8:30p MT, available on Apple TV+ / MLS Season Pass, with Mark Rogondino and Heath Pearce (ENG) and Raul Guzman and Carlos Ruiz (SPN) on the call.

First-place RSL arrives in Carson, Calif., riding a seven-game unbeaten run (five wins, two draws) dating back to March 9 at home, a stretch that has seen Major League Soccer’s staunchest defense notch four clean sheets. During the current MLS run, RSL has outscored opponents 13-4, scored first in four of the seven matches and scored four game-winning goals in the final 15 minutes of matches.

RSL travels to Los Angeles this weekend boasting a 3-1-2 record / 11 points away from home in MLS action this year, winning on the road in Vancouver on March 23 and at Chicago / at Philadelphia in late April, while settling for draws at St. Louis on Feb. 24 and at Minnesota on April 6, following a season-opening loss at Miami on Feb. 21. A year ago, Head Coach Pablo Mastroeni’s team amassed 12 road wins and five away draws across all competitions, against just eight losses, by far the most successful road campaign in Club history.

This week, Head Coach Pablo Mastroeni’s team also looks to extend the Club’s active unbeaten streak to eight MLS games, the Claret-and-Cobalt last losing on March 9 at home against Colorado. Last weekend’s 1-0 win over rival Kansas City was just one of four America First Field matches for RSL from mid-April to mid-June, the Claret-and-Cobalt eight of 12 away from home during that span, includes this week’s U.S. Open Cup trip to Albuquerque.

Real Salt Lake’s current three-game MLS win streak is the Claret-and-Cobalt’s first in nearly two years – last accomplished in both May and March of 2022; RSL also had three such streaks in the 2019 season. However, RSL has not had a three-game win streak involving two road victories – as the current run does – since August,…
