Date: Sunday, 25 August 2019
Kick-off at 03:00 UK/ 04:00 CET
Venue: Rio Tinto Stadium (Sandy).
Away games have been the thorn that cannot be pulled out for the Rapids for quite some time. Despite their recent heroics in front of the home crowd, the team has not been able at all to display a decent effort once devoid of that comfort.
They have so far won just once in a road game and is in fact on a winless streak of five such games in the MLS.
Salt Lake, who’s been on fine form, disregarding their loss against toppers Los Angeles, will consider this fixture as an opportunity to continue their assault for the podium positions. At present, they are lagging behind the runner-up spot by mere two points.
