Stats and Notes

The home team hasn't lost in a Rocky Mountain Cup since 2007, leaving Real Salt Lake in good company. They may need to win, though, to set the right pace for sealing the Rocky Mountain Cup for a seventh consecutive year.

Real Salt Lake won last year's home opener — against New York Red Bulls — by a 2-0 scoreline. Luis Gil and Fabian Espindola scored that night.
