Real Salt Lake (4-6-4, 16 pts., 11th West) now focuses on recapturing its legendary home form, as three of its next four matches will be played on Utah soil – where RSL historically has earned nearly 2.00 points per game with a .700 winning percentage – after Head Coach Pablo Mastroeni’s side earned seven road points in three away games last week.
