Real Salt Lake takes on a four-game unbeaten LA Galaxy side in Carson, Calif., tonight, and you'd be right if you thought it was likely to be tense. RSL, unbeaten in six, hasn't faced a test quite like this one in 2016, with the Galaxy just getting going in MLS.
Here's how to watch this one.

Injuries and absences
- Sunny has been experiencing a slow recovery to his lower leg issue, but he was expected to return to full training this week. Don't expect him to start, but if he's available, he could be a good bench option.
- Javier Morales had been ill, but he has said he was 90-minutes fit and ready to go — that means you can expect to see him start, because he rarely bluffs on those things. Jeff Cassar, for his part, has said that those sorts of things are up to Morales and that he trusts he knows how his body feels. Here's hoping, right?
- Joao Plata, on the other hand, is definitely out after suffering some sort of quad strain in training. It shouldn't keep him out too long, and an optimistic projection would see him return against Houston Dynamo at Rio Tinto in a week.
