Saprissa are going to come in to this match over-confident, and it's going to hurt them. Sure, they will recognize RSL's undefeated streak and the degree of difficulty in playing at the RioT, but they will still think that an MLS club is not on their same level. Famous last words.

I'll be curious to see how much rain the pitch absorbs between now and tomorrow night. A slower playing surface should play right into RSL's hands. A sloppy surface hurts both squads, however.

3-1 final result for the good guys. A brace for Saborio, and a header goal from Olave. Saprissa gets one back late after the outcome has been decided (which will complicate things for the return leg, it should be noted.)

This will end 2-0 RSL, Real Salt Lake will control of his match and as it goes into the later minutes Jason Kries's tendency to play overly concervative will benifit the final outcome.
