Third times the charm…
Real Salt Lake (RSL) played the Los Angeles FC (LAFC) twice in the regular season and lost badly in both games. They opened up the season at home and lost 5-1, and lost the second game 2-0. Analysts were doubtful from the beginning that RSL would even make it to the playoffs this season, but with a little help from the Houston Dynamo, RSL squeaked in.
The main thing RSL had going for them leading up to the match was rest. They didn’t play the week prior and had actually been training for LAFC before they even knew they would be playing them. Coach Mike Petke made some line-up changes and it worked as RSL walked away with a 3-2 victory over LAFC.
