  DID YOU KNOW?

  • Real Salt Lake is 11-1-0 in league play when scoring the first goal, a winning percentage that trails only Seattle Sounders FC and the Chicago Fire, respectively.

  • Real striker Álvaro Sabório continued his hot streak, scoring his seventh goal over the last seven games, in the club’s 2-1 loss to FC Dallas. Sabório is tied for second in the MLS Golden Boot standings with 14 goals.
  • Philadelphia has cooled off since a hot start under interim head coach John Hackworth. The Union is winless in its last three matches.
