Real Salt Lake are back in action at the Rio Tinto Stadium in Utah, when they host FC Dallas in an MLS regular season clash.

Real Salt Lake will be on a high, after ending a three-match losing streak with a great win against Portland Timbers in their last match. Real Salt Lake were 2-0 victors in a match against a side much more fancied than they were in that clash.

For FC Dallas, the mood will be the exact opposite to Real Salt Lake. They have only one win in their last five games. Their last game was a humbling 3-0 defeat to Nashville SC.

With a win in this game, Real Salt Lake will draw level with FC Dallas in the Western Conference standings, albeit having played a game more than their visitors on Saturday night.
