Player Ratings: RSL 0 - LAFC 3

New, 6 comments

RSL was outmatched by LAFC in Open Cup play.

MLS: U.S. Open Cup-LAFC at Real Salt Lake Jeff Swinger-USA TODAY Sports

Nick Rimando - 6 Rimando had three difficult, critical saves to keep RSL alive in a game where the offense never really did much besides sputter.

Adrian Brody - 5.5 Brody got some first team minutes for the first time this year and showed pretty well for himself against the likes of Carlos Vela and Diego Rossi.

Marcelo Silva - 4.5 Silva let the attackers get in behind him a time or two and headed the ball a bit high on one of RSL’s few scoring chances.

Erik Holt - 3 Holt was outmatched in this one. He was involved in a couple of the LAFC goals. Vela was simply too much for Holt to handle.

Donny Toia - 4 Toia, like much of the rest of the team, could not keep pace with LAFC’s wingers and it became an ongoing problem.

Everton Luiz - 5.5 Luiz looked like he was returning to form after a couple of shaky performances in MLS play.

Kyle Beckerman - 5 Beckerman’s passing was a touch off, but he set a tone for RSL early not to let LAFC run circles around them.

Damir Kreilach - 4.5 Damir was unable to unlock LAFC’s stingy defending. He did well in tight spots a couple of times, but we needed more out of him to give RSL a chance.

Corey Baird - 5 Baird was better on defense on the night than he was on offense. His effort was definitely there, but LAFC’s defense was difficult to break down.

Tate Schmitt - 5.5 Schmitt got another look with the first team and did not look out of place for most of the night. In fact, were it not for an incredible save by Sisniega, he would have scored. Instead, he ended up with RSL’s only shot on goal.

Sam Johnson - 4.5 Sam held up the ball pretty well, but was unable to get the defenders turned around in order to do much in the way of creating scoring chances.
