RSL heads into regular season finale
(KUTV) In this edition of Talkin’ Real coach Mike Petke is upset about the way Tony Beltran was injured in Colorado and he isn’t sure of Jefferson Savarino’s availability for the season finale.
Playoff berths and seeding will be settled as Real Salt Lake closes the regular season Sunday at 2pm against Sporting Kansas City at Rio Tinto Stadium. RSL needs a win and some help to reach the playoffs. If San Jose defeats Minnesota at home or if Houston beats the LA Galaxy in Texas then RSL is eliminated from post-season contention, but if those two teams don’t win then the door is open for RSL to sneak in on the final day.
SKC is currently fourth in the west and will probably host a wild card game, but with a win and some help Sporting might climb to second in the west and get a first round playoff bye. With a loss and a Houston win SKC falls to fifth and opens the playoffs on the road.
