Real Salt Lake is in LA tonight to take on the LA Galaxy in the Western Conference semifinals at 7:00 PM. The #2 seed Real Salt Lake is coming off a win over Chivas USA taking over a week off before taking on the #3 seed LA Galaxy. This match will be the featured Sunday night event on ESPN. The #1 seed Portalnd Timbers took a step toward the Western Conference finals by defeating the #4 seed Seattle Sounders on the road in the opening leg of the aggregate home and home series in a hard found 2 – 1 contest.
Real Salt Lake is 10-11-6 against LA Galaxy in MLS regular season and playoff action, posting a 5-8-1 all-time road record at LA.
Real Salt Lake has won 5 of the the 6 matches on the road against the LA Galaxy at StubHub Center with the last loss being the last meeting on Aug. 17, 2013. RSL has had a lot of good luck at the StubHub center going 2-1-0 against the Galaxy and 3-0-0 against Chivas US.
RSL has a balanced scoring attack with the team leader being #15 Alvaro Saborio. Look for Sabo to take several shots fed by Javier Morales and Robbie Findley as the expected starters.
