Danny Musovski Puts Real Salt Lake On The Board Against LA Galaxy

May 31, 2023, 8:58 PM | Updated: Jun 1, 2023, 10:30 am

SALT LAKE CITY – After a heartbreaking penalty to end the first half, Danny Musovski scored a goal to tie that game just minutes after halftime.

The goal was Musovski’s second of the season.

RSL found themselves unable to capitalize on multiple scoring opportunities in the first 50 minutes.

A handball called on Damir Kreilach just before half gave LA a penalty kick and a 1-0 lead.

Muslovski’s goal brought life into Real Salt Lake and the fans at America First Field.

Real Salt Lake GM Elliot Fall Speaks On Club Turning Season Around

Real Salt Lake started the season 1-4. In the 11 MLS and U.S. Open Cup games since then, RSL has gone 6-2-3.

Despite the turnaround, Real Salt Lake is still on the outside of the playoff race looking in. With 15 total points, RSL sits in the West’s 11-seed.

“There’s a way to go still,” Fall said. “We’re not perfect. There are some scoreless draws in there. Of course, we would love to put the ball in the back of the net and turn some of those into three points. We’re trending in the right direction. I think there’s a lot of positive things to feel good about.”

RSL has done a lot of lineup experimentation to figure out how to best utilize the group. Young players like Emeka Eneli have given the club a much-needed boost in games down the stretch.

“In those 11 games in the last six weeks, we’ve played something like 25 players,” Fall said. “Which is a lot of guys getting an opportunity. We’ve gotten to see what they have to offer. Some of the best performances, some of the biggest wins, have been driven by young players. We want to be a club that’s committed to development.”

One of Real Salt Lake’s biggest shortcomings is goal scoring. RSL’s 13 goals put them at 20th in the MLS. Fall said that the front office has an opportunity to strengthen the club’s play in the attacking third.

“It’s an important summer window ahead of us,” Fall said. “We have a really well-rounded group. (RSL) could use some guys who can threaten for 90 minutes and be difference-makers in the attacking third. We have some guys who can do that, but you need more of them. We have an opportunity to look for some of that.”
