Player Ratings: Minnesota 3-2 RSL

A no-call led to a real momentum switch.

MLS: Real Salt Lake at Minnesota United FC Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

Nick Rimando - 5 Rimando picked up a knock and did not seem to have the speedy reactions that he normally does afterwards.

Danilo Acosta - 5.5 Acosta had a pretty average game. He was able to get in the attack for stretches but got lost a couple times.

Marcelo Silva - 5 Silva had some good individual plays but lost his head when he was called for a questionable foul then proceeded to kick the ball to the sideline costing him the next game.

Justen Glad - 5.5 Glad took a hit on Minnesota’s first goal that went uncalled and gave too much space to Darwin Quintero on the second. Then he nearly had a header to tie the game at the end. He had an interesting game.

Brooks Lennon - 6 Lennon provided the perfect service to Plata on RSL’s second goal, but lost his runner on another play that cost RSL a goal.

Damir Kreilach - 6 Damir was much better up front in this game than he was in Columbus. If he’d have finished his chances, he very well could have had two goals.

Kyle Beckerman - 7 Beckerman’s first half was incredible. He knew when and where to be to put an end to anything Minnesota had in mind. Things got out of control in the second half, not to any fault of his.

Albert Rusnak - 6 Rusnak took a while to find his rhythm in this one but was credited with an assist on Plata’s free kick goal and opened things up around him.

Jefferson Savarino - 6 Savarino got around defenders as usual and put in work defensively, but did not find his way on the stat sheet.

Corey Baird - 5.5 This was not Baird’s most effective game. He seems to do better centrally than on the wing for some reason.

Sunny - 5 This was not Sunny’s best game. It looked like he simply gave up on tracking the runner on Minnesota’s third goal. He had some good moments in possession though.

Substitutions

Joao Plata - 7.5 Plata ended up with two goals in just under 25 minutes on the field. He brought life to a team that was falling off the rails.

Luis Silva - 5 Silva opened up things in the attack by drawing attention, but had a pretty quiet game.

Pablo Ruiz - N/A
