Major League Soccer
Date: Friday, 19th October 2018
Kick-off at 02.00 UK/ 03.00 CET
Venue: Rio Tinto Stadium, Sandy.

Play-off qualified Real Salt Lake hosts Eastern Conference team New England Revolution at the Rio Tinto Stadium for this second to last round of the Major League Soccer.

The visitors have nothing to play for but pride. They have already been eliminated from the play-offs and this match just seems to be extra travel and unnecessary burden on their already tired legs. Real Salt Lake will use this opportunity to get sharp for the play-offs.

The advantage lies with the home team and the result will probably be skewed in their favor. They will have to mend the problems in their defence that has troubled them during the mid-season. Expect some experiments from the home team in their defensive set up.
