The MLS season resumes in Sandy, Utah, as MLS Cup holder Real Salt Lake welcomes the San Jose Earthquakes to Rio Tinto Stadium for a Western Conference encounter (9 p.m., MLS Direct Kick).
Salt Lake is still without the services of injured midfielder Kyle Beckerman and U.S. men's national team striker Robbie Findley, but with the way that Javier Morales and Alvaro Saborio have guided the team in their stead, they can afford to miss more time to fully recover/continue a magical World Cup run.
San Jose, meanwhile, received a bounce-back performance from midfielder Bobby Convey during the first 12 weeks of the season, and the Quakes will look to him and surprise goal-scoring threat Chris Wondolowski to spearhead an upset.
