Player Ratings: Vancouver 2-1 RSL

RSL’s errors once again gave away points.

MLS: Real Salt Lake at Vancouver Whitecaps FC Troy Wayrynen-USA TODAY Sports

Andrew Putna- 4.5 Putna wasn’t horrible by any means, but his positioning was not ideal.

Donny Toia - 5 Toia was not outmatched, but lost too many battles to be effective.

Justen Glad - 5.5 Glad played smart in how he defended and when he fouled.

Marcelo Silva - 3.5 Silva’s marking was sub par. On Vancouver’s second goal, he was running around chaotically while Vancouver sliced him up.

Aaron Herrera - 6 The consistent, high-level performance was once again on display from Herrera. If only the rest of the team would show up game in and game out like he does.

Justin Portillo - 5.5 Portillo had a pretty decent night and made smart passes. He was also pretty decent on the defensive tasks he was assigned.

Pablo Ruiz- 5 We didn’t see Ruiz get as involved in this game as he has been in the last few, but he is still on an overall upward trajectory.

Damir Kreilach - 6.5 Damir scored RSL’s only goal and put the team in a great position to win. His secondary runs were timely and dangerous.

Justin Meram - 6 Meram provided a wonderful assist to Damir on the RSL goal. We could have used a bit more out of him in the creativity department though.

Maikel Chang - 6.5 Chang got the so-called hockey assist on the Kreilach goal, and he was clearly RSL’s most dangerous player on offense.

Douglas Martinez Jr. - 3 Martinez scored the strange header own goal for Vancouver. He now has more goals for other teams than he does for RSL in MLS play. Against the Whitecaps, he was able to get the ball up on the wing a decent amount, and then repeatedly did nothing approaching effective with the ball once he got to that point.

Substitutes

Corey Baird - 5.5 As a sub, Baird was looking to score and get a point out of the game. Unfortunately, he was unable to place the ball in the right spot to get past the keeper.

Jeizon Ramirez - N/A
