Saturday Major League Soccer action from Rio Tinto Stadium, as RSL take on Caps.

This clash sees eighth placed RSL, welcome tenth placed Caps to Rio Tinto Stadium.

This season’s Major League Soccer campaign, has so far seen Real Salt Lake eight points

RSL have suffered at the hands of FC Dallas and Nashville SC in their previous two matches, with two successive draws. They go into this game with the hope of taking all three points.

A draw statistic of two in two games is not all bad, but unfortunately will not bring the success Freddy Juarez’s men wishes for ultimately. With eight points, they are established in eighth in the League having won two matches, drawn two games, and lost one game.

When RSL host Caps, they will do so on the back of one victory and one darts on their own ground.

A victory for Real Salt Lake would put them on 11 points.

With the Major League Soccer season well into its stride, Vancouver Whitecaps have managed to gain seven points so far, going into this game

Marc Dos Santos will have impressed upon his team the importance of getting a positive result out of this game, following two successive defeats. First it was Sporting Kansas City and then Houston Dynamo, however this is something that their opponents will be aware of going into this fixture.

Caps will be hopeful of shaking off the poor form that has seen them lose three meetings this Major League Soccer season. They currently stand tenth in the League, with seven points having won two fixtures, drawn one game, and lost four games.

Playing away from home, Caps have drawn one game and lost three meetings.

Vancouver Whitecaps will have 10 points if they manage to secure a victory.
