Team: Real Salt Lake
Venue: Talen Energy Stadium
Kick off: 7:30 p.m. ET 
Record: 4-5-1, 13 points. Sixth in the Western Conference

Projected Starting XI: Nick Rimando; Brooks Lennon, Justen Glad, Nick Besler, Pablo Ruiz; Kyle Beckerman, Damir Kreilach; Jefferson Savarino, Albert Rusnák, Joao Plata; Corey Baird
Player to Watch: Albert Rusnák

Real Salt Lake midfielder Albert Rusnák is looking to build off his debut MLS season where he recorded seven goals and 14 assists. So far in 2018, the No. 10 has already registered three goals and three assists in just 900 minutes played. The 23-year-old is known around the league for creating chances around the net with exceptional passes that set up his teammates with the opportunity to score a goal. In order to keep RSL off the score sheet when they visit Talen Energy Stadium Saturday night, the Union will need to keep a close tab on Rusnák.
