CHICAGO – Midfielder Andres Gomez gave RSL a 1-0 lead over the Chicago Fire FC in the first half at Soldier Field on Saturday.

The goal was his third of the season. The other two came in a brace against LAFC seven weeks ago.

Off a pass from Alexandros Katranis, Gomez got a touch and gained possession at the top of the box.

He evaded Chicago’s Fabian Herbers and sent a shot past the goalie into the bottom right corner.

After Gomez’s goal, the floodgates opened for Real Salt Lake.

Chicho Arango scored two goals in five minutes to put the road-side up 3-0.

RSL held that lead going into halftime.

The Fire boasts a record of 2-3-3 and sits just outside of the playoff picture in the East.

RSL holds the fourth spot in the West with a record of 3-2-3. Despite two draws in the last two games, Real climbed into the top ten of the MLS’ power rankings.

It’s the club’s first appearance in the top ten this year.

Both Chicago and RSL have 11 goals scored on the season. However, the Fire has given up six more goals.

Following the match in Chicago, Real Salt Lake will play the Philadelphia Union on Saturday, April 27.
