Real Salt Lake takes on Chivas USA in the final preseason match of 2014, with just one week remaining until that fateful first match against LA Galaxy.
With that in mind, let's go over some things to watch out for.
Luke Mulholland, after impressing against FC Tucson, will be one to watch — his set-piece delivery boosted his considerations among RSL fans, but can he maintain that sort of level against a (slightly) higher-level opponent?
One might rightly expect a first-choice lineup against Chivas, particularly with the opener just around the corner. Maintaining fitness and getting the attack really ready to go will be high priorities.
We'll be dealing with a disconnected Chivas USA team, and that isn't necessarily the best preparation for the opener, but it's what we've got to work with.
It's all coming to a head now, but the truly testing moments won't start until next week. Let's cherish this while we can.
