You can look at the CONCACAF Champions League standings to see what is going on with Real Salt Lake, a team that always stamps “high value target” over CCL pursuits.
Or, you can simply head the words of RSL manager Jason Kreis, who sums up his side’s situation:
“If we lose or draw, odds are we’ll be done with this tournament. So, there’s only one result that is acceptable.”
That’s from this morning’s Salt Lake City Tribune. An opening loss to Costa Rica’s Herediano in the regional competition has left things thus.
With a short turn before Tuesday’s contest in Utah, two important RSL men were rested to begin last weekend’s MLS match against Dallas. Kreis’ team lost that one, 2-1 to FC Dallas. So, that only adds pressure on tonight’s contest against the Panamanian champions.
