MLS Preview: Real Salt Lake - Toronto FC

Pointless Toronto FC travels to Utah looking to avoid tying the worst start to an MLS season by getting a result against Real Salt Lake.

Real Salt Lake (4-4-2): Rimando; Beltran, Borchers, Olave, Wingert; Steele, Beckerman, Morales, Gil; Espindola, Paulo Jr.


OUT: MF Nico Muniz (R knee MCL strain)

DOUBTFUL: FW Cody Arnoux (L adductor strain)

QUESTIONABLE: MF Ned Grabavoy (rib dislocation)

PROBABLE: MF Enzo Martinez (back spasms); MF Javier Morales (R hamstring strain)
Toronto FC (4-3-3): Kocic; Eckersley, Cann, Frings; Stinson, Dunfield, Avila, Morgan; Lambe, Johnson, Plata.


OUT: FW Nicholas Lindsay (L knee surgery recovery); DF Dicoy Williams (R knee surgery recovery); DF Jeremy Hall (sports hernia surgery recovery); GK Stefan Frei (L lower leg); MF Nick Soolsma (L hamstring strain)

DOUBTFUL: FW Danny Koevermans (R adductor strain)

PROBABLE: MF Torsten Frings (R hamstring strain)
  • If Toronto FC loses this match it will tie the MLS record for the worst start to a season. The Kansas City Wizards started the 1999 season by losing seven straight. Toronto is pointless through six games.
  • Since 2007 the away team hasn't won in this series. Each side won at home last season.
  • Real Salt Lake tied FC Dallas on the road midweek, with rookie Emiliano Bonfigli scoring the equalizer for RSL.
  • Toronto's last outing was a 3-2 defeat to the Chicago Fire. Reggie Lambe scored the first two goals of his MLS career in the losing effort.
  • Nick Rimando, 28, and Milos Kocic, 25, are first and third, respectively, on the MLS saves list this season. Also, Kyle Beckerman is tied with Oswaldo Minda with a league-leading four yellow cards.
