Expansion side Atlanta United rolls into Rio Tinto Stadium for the first time in their existence, while RSL will look to win their third straight.
RSL is hoping a winning tradition continues against another expansion side, but Atlanta will be no walk in the park.
Reinventing Real Salt Lake is the momentous task at hand for Mike Petke, and he has already made strides.
Two years after leaving the club, one of the most prized prospects in the history of the Real Salt Lake academy is back home – and he’s already paying major dividends.
It’s hard to oversell exactly how exciting Brooks Lennon has become for Real Salt Lake.
A nice feature on RSL's most exciting player of early 2017.
"Scoring a goal's great," he said, "but it's in the past, and I have to keep pushing and keep working and every time I get on the field, do what I do best and fight for everything I get."
He’ll be available this weekend against RSL.

We answered questions from the other side, too.
