In the 2023 Leagues Cup first-round match, Real Salt Lake will host Seattle Sounders at America First Field on Saturday.
The home team is currently on a winning streak in Major League Soccer and will be hoping to extend that momentum into the cup match this weekend. In their most recent match, they defeated the New York Red Bulls 3-1. Diego Luna scored twice, and Jefferson Savarino sealed the victory late in the contest.
The Seattle Sounders, however, have recently had trouble getting success in their local assignments and are hoping for better fortune on Saturday's continental stage. They may have deserved more from the game after FC Dallas held them to a 1-1 draw the last time they played, but they made poor finishing decisions.
The visitors, who reached the Leagues Cup final in the previous season before falling to Leon of Mexico 3-2, will be hoping to advance further this year.
