Major League Soccer action on Saturday as Austin and RSL meet at Q2 Stadium – 10:30pm GMT.

RSL (seventh), travel to Q2 Stadium with high expectations, as they take on thirteenth placed Austin.

This season’s Major League Soccer campaign, has so far seen Austin achieve 22 points

LA Galaxy were beaten 2-0 at Q2 Stadium, the last time that Austin played.

League success is all about winning football matches, any way you can, so 10 losses in 13 fixtures would not make this a successful season for Austin. With 22 points, they currently sit thirteenth in the League having won six fixtures, drawn four meetings, and lost 16 matches.

When Austin host RSL, they will do so on the back of four victories and two draws on their own ground.

Winning this fixture will see Austin on 25 points.

Real Salt Lake arrive at this meeting, having secured 36 points so far this season

Returning to match-winning form, following a defeat is always a tough challenge, but that is what RSL need now, after their loss to Portland Timbers at Providence Park.

Their position is seventh in the League, and they have 36 points having won 10 meetings, drawn six matches, and lost 10 fixtures.

RSL’s away record is remarkable and poses a significant threat to Austin. In the 13 games they’ve played on the road this season, they have so far won three matches, drawn two meetings, and lost eight fixtures.

A win in this fixture would take Real Salt Lake’s points to 39 in the League.
