Real Salt Lake Hosts Lamar Hunt US Open Cup Bout against LAFC Tuesday at Rio Tinto Stadium
SANDY, Utah - Real Salt Lake returns to the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup fold on Tuesday, June 11 when it hosts Major League Soccer leaders LAFC in Sandy. Kickoff from Rio Tinto Stadium is set for 8:00 p.m. MT while the match can be seen live on ESPN+.
RSL returns to the Open Cup tournament after a fourth-round exit in last year's tournament where it dropped a 2-0 home result to Sporting Kansas City. When it hosts LAFC, it will be the first time that RSL has faced LAFC in the tournament and the second time outside of MLS regular season play after RSL earned a 3-2 win in the Knockout Round of the 2018 MLS Cup Playoffs last November.
The last time RSL and LAFC faced one another was March 24, 2019, a match that saw MF Damir Kreilach score a penalty kick in the second half before an attacking surge and a stoppage-time winner from LAFC ultimately downed RSL 2-1. LAFC currently sits atop the MLS standings by an emphatic nine-point margin having claimed 37 points from 16 matches played. Tuesday's visitors are led by Mexican international Carlos Vela who has scored a resounding 16 goals in 16 matches played in 2019.
