SALT LAKE CITY – Just after halftime, Real Salt Lake forward Chicho Arango scored to give the home club a 2-0 lead over rival Colorado.

The goal was Arango’s third of the MLS season.

With the goal against the Rapids, Arango has scored in back-to-back games for RSL.

Against Portland, Arango redirected a strike from Brayan Vera to put Real Salt Lake on the board just before the end of regulation.

Real Salt Lake Hosts Rival Colorado As Season Winds Down

Coming off of four straight losses, Real Salt Lake looks to regain some momentum against heated rival Colorado Rapids.

RSL and the Rapids last faced off in May where they played two games in four days.

In the U.S. Open Cup and the MLS regular season, Real Salt Lake pulled out the victory in both games.

After RSL’s loss to Portland on Wednesday, they fell to sixth in the West with a record of 10-9-7.

Colorado currently sits in dead last in the West with a record of 3-12-10.

The Rapids have the least seeding points in the MLS with 19.

A big reason for Real Salt Lake’s struggles of late is the absence of midfielder Pablo Ruiz.

The Argentine went down with a non-contact injury in the U.S. Open Cup round of 16 game against LAFC.

Ruiz suffered a meniscus injury in his right knee.

One of RSL’s biggest issues is staying strong after conceding early goals.

The opposing club scored first in all nine of Real Salt Lake’s losses in MLS play this season.

RSL has just seven games left on the schedule following the match against Colorado.
