Joao Plata scores, puts RSL up 1-0 at halftime

Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

Joao Plata handed Real Salt Lake fans a glimmer of hope against Tigres, scoring a goal to put the team up 1-0 at halftime.

RSL is still down 2-1 on aggregate; another goal without conceding would force extra time. However, an away goal would make things much more difficult, with away goals as a tiebreaker.
