Los Angeles FC vs Real Salt Lake: Match preview, team news, broadcast listings

October 31, 2018 By Michelle Bonsu
LiveSoccerTV's match preview provides team news, head-to-head analysis and broadcast listings for LA FC's clash with Real Salt Lake in the MLS Cup playoffs at 22:30 EST on November 1.

Current form: Los Angeles FC vs Real Salt Lake

Debutants Los Angeles FC will be hoping to continue their impressive season in MLS and march on to the semi-finals of the MLS Cup at the expense of Real Salt Lake. Bob Bradley's side, however, will be bitterly disappointed with how they ended their season, as a 2-1 loss on Decision Day against Sporting Kansas City marred an otherwise strong conclusion to the campaign which saw them pick up two wins against Colorado Rapids and Houston Dynamo and battle to a two-all stalemate versus Vancouver Whitecaps.

Key man Carlos Vela, who netted nine goals alone with his left foot, will hope to be a thorn in Real Salt Lake's side as the visitors have conceded 22 goals coming from left-footed players during the regular season.

As for visiting side Real Salt Lake, they needed others to do them a favor on Decision Day in order to guarantee them a spot in the play-offs. It all required for Houston Dynamo to beat LA Galaxy - and that's exactly what came to pass, thus ending Zlatan Ibrahimovic's hopes of continuing his season further with the Galaxy into the MLS Cup and giving Real Salt Lake a chance to progress in the tournament. 

Current position: Los Angeles FC vs Real Salt Lake
