CINCINNATI, Ohio – Soccer fans in Cincinnati will never get the chance to see Real Salt Lake’s legendary goalkeeper, Nick Rimando, play.

The 39-year old keeper, who is playing in his final season of professional soccer, was kept out of RSL’s lineup for the match against FC Cincinnati, the team’s first game ever against the first-year club.

According to RSL’s broadcast analyst Brian Dunseth, Rimando’s absence was due to a knee injury and was a precautionary decision made by head coach Mike Petke.

In place of Rimando, usual backup Andrew Putna was given the start in goal.

Putna was drafted by RSL in the third round of the 2017 MLS SuperDraft. He appeared in two games and made one start in his first year with the first team last season.

The match between RSL and FC Cincinnati can be streamed live on KSLSports.com or the KSL TV app.
