Sandy • Gusty winds and a good chance of rain should increase the difficulty for Real Salt Lake and D.C. United at 7 p.m. Saturday at Rio Tinto Stadium, two teams in need of a victory.
Paulo Junior once again starts up front with Alvaro Saborio for RSL in place of Fabian Espindola. Center back Chris Schuler is among the Real subs.
RSL enters Saturday's game tied with Seattle for second place in the MLS Western Division. Both teams are only three points in front of the L.A. Galaxy.
United is also in a fight to make the playoffs. D.C. stands tied with Chicago for fourth in the Eastern Conference.
