The Loons are back in St. Paul after a string of successful regular-season road games this Saturday to take on Real Salt Lake at Allianz Field. Initially, Salt Lake struggled to gain traction this season, with only one win in their first five games. However, Utah's team has continued to push, now undefeated in their last two regular-season matches and fresh off of a Wednesday U.S. Open Cup win over Colorado. Historically, MNUFC has had a slight edge over the team from the Beehive State, with a record of five wins, five draws, and three losses for the Loons. Scoring has never been in short supply between these two teams, with eight goals scored between them in their last two meetings alone. Only three points separate the 6th-place Loons from the 11th-place RSL, leaving plenty to play for in what will likely be a tightly contested match this weekend. Make your way to the Midway, stream the game on Apple TV with the MLS Season Pass or tune in to 1500 ESPN to see which team takes the points up for grabs.
