SANDY, Utah (Tuesday,
September 21, 2010)

After arriving in Panama City on Monday, Real Salt Lake (2-1-0, 6
pts. in CCL play)
will gear up for Wednesday’s critical Group A Matchweek 4
contest against Árabe Unido (1-2-0, 3 pts. in CCL play), with the 6:00
p.m. MT kickoff
from Estadio Rommel Fernández in the Panamanian
capital set to air on tape delay on Fox Soccer Channel at 9:00 p.m.
MT
. Fans will be able to follow the match live via a streaming video feed on CONCACAF.com (registration required) and RSL’s Official Twitter Feed, located at
www.Twitter.com/RealSaltLake, while radio broadcast information is pending
and will be announced by Wednesday morning by the RSL Communications
Department.

 

Real Salt Lake is currently tied for the
Group A lead with Mexico’s Cruz Azul on six points midway through the Group
Stage of the regional competition, while Toronto FC and Árabe Unido both sit
within striking distance of the leaders on three points. The other Group A
fixture during Matchweek 4 will take place on Tuesday evening, when Cruz Azul
will try and seek revenge for its opening loss at Toronto FC, the two sides set
to meet at Estadio Azul in Mexico City at 6:00 p.m. MT (Fox Soccer Channel /
TeleFutura)

 

RSL and Árabe Unido, last year’s
champions of the Panamanian first division, have had one meeting prior to
tomorrow night’s matchup, but the 2-1 win in the Utah side’s first-ever match
in CCL play had enough action and antics for an entire group stage. The script
was certainly not one penned by the Claret-and-Cobalt, their introduction to
international competition starting unkindly when Árabe Unido FW Armando
Cooper
scored just eight minutes in for the visitors, who began falling to
the turf en masse shortly thereafter. However, RSL FW Álvaro Saborío
only picked up his play, first equalizing just before the halftime break by
nodding home a pin-point cross delivered by DF Chris Wingert. The CONCACAF
veteran was rewarded for his standout night in the waning moments of the match,
as he put away a penalty kick opportunity early in the eight minutes of
stoppage time tacked on after MF Nelson González was sent to the ground
after receiving a hard challenge inside the Árabe Unido area.
