Nick Rimando error takes RSL, MNUFC match from bad to worse

This isn’t the sort of thing we like to see.

MLS: Real Salt Lake at Minnesota United FC Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

It hasn’t bee a particularly great match for Real Salt Lake, aside from a fourth minute goal by Luke Mulholland. It got really bad, though, when Nick Rimando made an entirely uncharacteristic mistake as RSL gave up a third goal to Minnesota United.

Seriously. Just look at that. This is not the Nick Rimando we know and love. Given how uncharacteristic this sort of moment is, maybe we can rest easy tonight with the match being more or less a bust overall — an injury to Aaron Maund, no center back on the bench, this error, terrible giveaways.

Real Salt Lake is a shell of itself right now, and Mike Petke certainly has his work cut out for him.

Before publication, the scoreline hit 4-1. This is a fun one, right? Right? Oh. The only bright spot so far has likely been Sebastian Saucedo, who has been particularly good in the attack tonight.
