RSL History v. Revolution

After
getting off to a rough start in the series against New England, Real Salt Lake
has taken control in recent seasons, its 5-1-1 record since 2008 helping RSL to
a 6-4-3 overall mark against the Revolution. That ledger includes three
straight victories
, including RSL’s 2-0 triumph at Gillette Stadium in
Foxborough earlier this season back on April 9, a game in which Collen
Warner collected a pair of assists on goals from Chris Schuler (27’) and Paulo
Jr. (47’) Rio Tinto Stadium has served as New England’s house of horrors, as
Real Salt Lake has outscored the Revolution 11-0 in their two previous visits
to Sandy – a franchise record-setting 6-0 pasting on June 25, 2009, and a 5-0
shutout in last season’s Independence Day Celebration on July 2.
