Rio Tinto Stadium. The Claret-and-Cobalt’s annual Pioneer Day contest

Saturday’s
holiday match-up will close out the home-and-away season series between the
expansion classmates, with RSL looking for the sweep after notching a 2-1
victory over the Goats at The Home Depot Center back on May 22. In that match, Chris
Wingert’s
first MLS goal near the half was countered 10 minutes from time
by Salt Lake City native Justin Braun, but substitute striker Fabian
Espíndola
put the visitors up once again with an 89th minute
tally, giving the Utahns back the full three points. When factoring in
postseason play, Real Salt Lake is now 6-9-4 against Chivas USA, including a
4-2-2 record in games contested in the Beehive State.
