  DID YOU KNOW?
  • Chivas USA, bottom of the Western Conference, could be eliminated with a loss here and a Vancouver Whitecaps win this weekend.
  • Real Salt Lake, tied for second in the West, is one of three teams already qualified for the postseason.
  • RSL has reached the playoffs in five consecutive seasons, the longest active streak in the league (though the Columbus Crew could match it).
  • A 1-0 loss to D.C. United extended Chivas' winless run to nine matches, a club worst since 2005, its expansion season. The Goats haven't scored in 352 minutes, the second longest streak in MLS this year.
  • Free kicks from Javier Morales and Fabian Espindola, first goals since June for both Argentine attackers, led RSL to a 2-1 win over the Portland Timbers last week.
