It's MLS midweek action from the Rust Belt as the Columbus Crew host Real Salt Lake. For the Crew, the goal will be to one or two in the net and jolt their stagnant attack. It has been atrocious for most of the season with the exception of a 3-3 draw with Chivas and has been a big reason why they are winless in their last five matches.
Salt Lake has also struggled to score of late, but their problem is much easier to pinpoint. The injury to Javier Morales has left them without creativity in the final third and finding chances has been difficult, let alone putting them away. Playing without Alvaro Saborio, who is with Costa Rica for the Gold Cup, won't help matters either.
Columbus Crew: Hesmer, Miranda, Marshall, James, Gardner, Gaven, Ekpo, Burns, Balchan, Mendoza, Cunningham
Real Salt Lake: Rimando, Beltran, Olave, Schuler, Wingert, Grabavoy, Warner, Beckerman, Gonzalez, Alexandre, Espindola
