There were several good team performances in the opening week of the MLS season, but you will be hard-pressed to match the effort turned in by Real Salt Lake, which posted a 2-0 victory against defending Supporters Shield winners San Jose at Buck Shaw Stadium.
After an off-season that saw the team shake up its nucleus, RSL didn’t look like a team in rebuilding mode. They looked sharp and Alvaro Saborio looked in mid-season form leading the attack. Real Salt Lake’s ability to post a shutout on the road against a tough team like the Earthquakes made them SBI’s pick for MLS Team of the Week.
RSL beat out the Los Angeles Galaxy and Montreal Impact for this week’s honors.
What did you think of RSL’s performance in San Jose? Which team would have been your pick?
