Make that four games without a victory for Real Salt Lake and nine for the Seattle Sounders.

Both Western Conference teams' winless streaks were extended on Wednesday night, as they played to a scoreless draw in front of a soldout crowd at Rio Tinto Stadium.

There may have been no goals in the match, but there was some controversy after a second-half finish from Alvaro Saborio was whistled back for offside.

Real Salt Lake dominated possession for large stretches of the match before and after that 52nd-minute incident, but the hosts were unable to find the go-ahead goal. The Sounders seemed content to absorb the pressure, and they almost found a winner late in the match off a cross from the left that teasingly rolled by Eddie Johnson and Cordell Cato.

Here are the match highlights:
