Real Salt Lake vs Los Angeles FC
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 18 August 2019
Kick-off at 03:00 UK/ 04:00 CET
Venue: Rio Tinto Stadium (Sandy, Utah).
Sacking of Mike Petke didn’t change much for Real Salt Lake as they’ve managed to win third straight game and continue their push for the post season football. Petke’s assistant, Freddy Juarez took over and enjoyed a great debut on the bench in a 3-0 win over Seattle Sounders. RSL are currently 4th in the Western Conference with solid 40pts.
With ten games left in the regular season, LAFC have 14pts lead over 2nd placed Minnesota United in the West. That is mad. They will win MLS Supporters’ Shield and are on a hunt to smash several records, including the one they probably want the most – to take down Galaxy’s ’98 team that netted 85 goals. Considering their goals per game ratio, it’s absolutely do-able.
