How to watch Real Salt Lake v. NYCFC

Jean-Yves Ahern-USA TODAY Sports

Real Salt Lake takes on NYCFC for the first time tonight, and we're sure you want to watch — so here you are. Here's everything we know about how you can.

On TV: KMYU (Over-the-air in Utah — 2.2, satellite — 12, Comcast — 22); Canada: TSN

RSL lineup prediction

The club's match preview features a 4-1-3-2 again, with John Stertzer replacing Jordan Allen in the lineup. While we admit that's possible, there might be a possibility of Javier Morales getting a start, too — there's a bit of radio silence right now, which could make the whole thing interesting.

So our prediction:

Rimando; Beltran, Olave, Vasquez, Mansally; Beckerman; Gil, Morales, Mulholland; Saborio, Sandoval

Key players

The injured trio — Javier Morales, Joao Plata, and Sebastian Jaime — get our pick as the key players for this one, because they enable the team to play in different ways. We could use that sort of thing.

But you should also keep an eye on Devon Sandoval, who has been in very good form and is brimming with confidence at current — will he continue to impress?

Absences and injuries

Out: Jordan Allen (U20 World Cup); Chris Schuler (injury)

Uncertain: Javier Morales (concussion), Joao Plata (foot), Sebastian Jaime (leg)
