MLS Preview: Columbus Crew v. Real Salt Lake ->

RSL now sit in 2nd place in the West, five points adrift of the Dynamo -- who won in their mid-week game. Depending on other results around the league, a loss could see Real slip into a tie for fourth place. The positive for Real is that they exploded for goals last week in Houston, nearly matching their season total of goals scored on the road, and they could easily build on that confidence.

“We’ve got a huge game this week,” striker Robbie Findley said. “We’ve just got to go back to looking at tape and seeing defensively where we went wrong. Our heads are still up.”
