Real Salt Lake News Release

SANDY, Utah – Real Salt Lake (11-3-7 / 40 points / 2nd West) remains at home for the second of two games this week, now hosting Atlanta United Saturday night following Wednesday’s 3-2 win over Houston. These back-to-back home games kick off a five-game July as RSL seeks to remain in both MLS Supporters Shield and Western Conference top-seed contention. Head Coach Pablo Mastroeni’s team will look to improve upon its 7-2-1 / 22-point home mark thus far in 2024. Kickoff Saturday in Sandy is at 7:30p MT, available on Apple TV+ / MLS Season Pass, with Max Bretos and Brian Dunseth (ENG) and Diego Pessolano and Daniel Chapela (SPN) on the call from America First Field.

RSL – now three points shy of LAFC, but three points ahead of the LA Galaxy in the race for Western Conference supremacy – follows up this week’s home games with a three-game road week starting on July 13 to Portland, a week that also sees trips to LAFC (July 17) and Colorado (July 20) prior to the 2024 MLS All-Star Game in Columbus (July 24), featuring both Captain Chicho Arango and Homegrown Justen Glad.

Wednesday, RSL saw dynamic young Colombian Andrés Gómez lead the charge, scoring a first-half equalizer and assisting on goals by both Diego Luna and Braian Ojeda. Gómez is now top-10 in MLS with both 11 goals and nine assists, while Luna has added four goals and nine assists on the year. Ojeda’s game-winner marked his first goal in 63 games with RSL since arriving in late summer 2022.

Back on June 22, RSL lost an MLS match for the first time since March 9, falling at home 0-1 to the LA Galaxy in a match marred by Chicho Arango’s head injury just 16 minutes into the game. RSL’s 15-game MLS unbeaten run established a new record for the Club’s longest single-season streak in team history – while also matching the Portland Timbers (2013, 2018) and Colorado Rapids (2016) for the second-longest in MLS regular-season history (FC Dallas’ 19 games unbeaten in 2010). In RSL’s 20-season history, RSL also enjoyed a 16-game run from 2013 into 2014 (including a 12-game single-season run in 2014), and a Club-record 18-game unbeaten streak from July 2010 to April 2011 (2010 includes a 14-game single-season run, RSL’s previous best) …
