Real Salt Lake faces a simmering Toronto FC tonight — a side that beat their last two opponents by three goals — and you’d be forgiven if you were a bit worried.
“Sebastian Giovinco,” you’re probably saying over and over in your head. I don’t blame you. But after goals last match from Joao Plata and Javier Morales that were straight off the top shelf, we think maybe this one could turn into a battle of goals.

- Yura Movsisyan is likely out with a hip flexor injury but has traveled with the team as he rehabs.
- Jamison Olave played in the last match, as did Luke Mulholland. Both were listed as probable before Wednesday’s match, and smart money has them not starting.
- Sunny remains out after suffering a facial fracture — he underwent successful surgery and will be out an estimated six to eight weeks.
- Emery Welshman remains out because of a hip flexor injury. He recently underwent surgery and will undergo another surgery in about six weeks.

I'm tied with it. I want to have it all to myself. It'll come, but it feels good. It's a big accomplishment I think. But it's just not MY night. I hold it with a lot of players and defenders that I have played with over the years.
