DID YOU KNOW?
  • Real Salt Lake held on for a 1-0 win at Chivas USA last weekend. Costa Rican Alvaro Saborio scored the game's only goal in the 11th minute.

  • The Union hasn't played since Aug. 20 - a 2-1 loss at Eastern Conference leading Columbus.

  • The Union has dropped to fourth place in the Eastern Conference, but it has games in hand over second place Sporting KC and third place Houston.
  • RSL is now two points behind the Rapids for fourth place in the Western Conference, but RSL has four games in hand on Colorado.
  • Philadelphia will be missing key center back Carlos Valdes for this match, who will sit due to  yellow card accumulation.
