Thursday Major League Soccer action from Rio Tinto Stadium, as RSL take on Galaxy.

Currently sitting in fifth place, Galaxy will travel to RSL, who are two·places lower in the League and sit in seventh place.

Real Salt Lake’s campaign so far has seen them accrue 36 points this season

RSL will have doubtless licked their wounds, following their recent defeat to Portland Timbers at Providence Park. Freddy Juarez’s men will hope that is enough to deliver a positive result in this match.

They currently stand seventh in the League, with 36 points having won 10 meetings, drawn six matches, and lost 10 fixtures.

Playing at home, RSL have won seven games, drawn four matches, and lost two meetings.

Winning this fixture will see Real Salt Lake on 39 points.

This season’s Major League Soccer campaign, has so far seen LA Galaxy achieve 38 points

Greg Vanney will not wish to see his side lose three matches in a row, so they will doubtless go into this match, determined to change their recent, disappointing run of form.

Galaxy need to find a way to win football matches, as Galaxy are gaining a reputation for draws and losses. They currently sit in fifth place, with a total of 38 points having won 11 matches, drawn five meetings, and lost nine matches.

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

Victory for LA Galaxy would take their points tally to 41 so far this season.
