Champions League Update

RSL doesn't play tonight, but our group stage opponents meet in a make or break match tonight which could solidify our position in the CCL.

Jean-Yves Ahern-USA TODAY Sports

There are several CONCACAF Champion's League games being played this mid-week, and while RSL is off their Group G opponents will meet for the 2nd time tonight at 8 PM. (Mountain Time).  The result could put RSL in perfect position to move on.

Match Recaps

RSL played C.S.D. Municipal in Guatemala back on Aug. 4th and pulled out a 0-1 away win from an 2nd minute Joao Plata goal.

C.S.D. Municipal next met the other Group G competitor, Santa Tecla F.C. in El Salvador on Aug. 20.  Municipal went ahead in the 19th minute, but couldn't hang on to the lead, and the match ended 1-1.

Group G Standings








Team Pld W D L GF GA GD Pts
Real Salt Lake 1 1 0 0 1 0 1 3
Santa Tecla 1 0 1 0 1 1 0 1
Municipal 2 0 1 1 1 2 -1 1

With both Santa Tecla and Municipal playing again tonight (in Guatamala) it's become a must win game for what is arguably RSL's main competitor.  After tonight they will have played 3 of their 4 games; their last coming vs RSL at Rio Tinto Stadium on October 20th.

A loss will mean they must win vs RSL to have a chance, but even that chance would be removed if RSL wins or ties either match vs Santa Tecla.  A tie will see them as temporarily group leaders until the RSL v Santa Tecla match on Sept. 15th.
