Monarchs have only two wins on the season, one of which came on Wednesday against PDL side Long Island Rough Riders in the US Open Cup, which gave them a chance to advance.
Real Monarchs' lineup takes on a slightly strange look — there are quite a few RSL players involved, and one might suspect that some, like Max Rauhofer, have been rested with the US Open Cup match this week in mind.
