Just over a week ago Real Salt Lake was struggling, looking as if they would be an MLS also ran. After beating both Seattle and Houstin in a short stretch RSL shot up the standings. They look to complete their charge during their busy week with another game against the Seattle Sounders, this time at home.
Seattle is a little bit healthier, but still struggling and only have two wins in all competitions at Rio Tinto Stadium. The June 2 match (6:30 p.m., JOEtv) will continue to test the depth of the team as they look to score just their second goal in their last six matches.
