For the first time since the Knockout Round of the 2018 Audi MLS Cup Playoffs, when Real Salt Lake stunned LAFC at Banc of California Stadium, the Western Conference foes square off at the Banc Saturday night.

LAFC (2-0-1) needed a Carlos Vela brace to erase a pair of deficits and secure a 2-2 draw with NYCFC at Yankee Stadium Sunday, while Real Salt Lake (1-1-1) would like to forget a 5-0 drubbing by D.C. United, a match the Claret-and-Cobalt ended with nine men.
