New, 6 comments

It’s still only a friendly, but you know what? We’re excited to watch anyway.

MLS: Real Salt Lake at Vancouver Whitecaps FC Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Sports

Real Salt Lake’s second match of this three game preseason tournament is against the Vancouver Whitecaps. We’re hoping to see a more defensively disciplined RSL while we build on the attacking success seen in the last match.

This is still only a friendly; so even if there are fans and full kits, expect to see some experimentation. This is one of only a few more chances we have to try new ideas and new players before the home opener on March 4th.

Match details

  • Time: 3:30 p.m. Mountain, 2:30 p.m. Pacific (local time)
  • Location: Providence Park; Portland, Oregon
  • Live stream: YouTube, RSL.com, embedded below

Lineup news and thoughts

  • There has been no update on Kyle Beckerman, so it’s assumed he is still out with injury.
  • Chris Schuler and Chris Wingert were rested in the last game, so they’re likely to get time in this match.
  • In each preseason game we’ve seen a 4-2-3-1 formation; we’re likely to see this again.
  • Justen Glad, Sebastian Saucedo, Brooks Lennon, and Danilo Acosta are away with the U.S. U-20 team.
  • In the last two friendlies we’ve seen a Rusnak, Plata, Yura, Allen attack. Watch to see if this remains the starting attack; it seems clear that this is our regular season front four.
