Real Salt Lake is hoping that the U.S. Open Cup win at home can provide some MLS momentum.

The club’s last MLS regular season home win came on April 22 against the San Jose Earthquakes. Since then, they’ve recorded two draws and two losses in front of the home fans.

New York City sits in the East’s 13-seed with a record of 4-7-5. Real Salt Lake holds the West’s 9-seed as they fight to stay in the playoff picture.

After NYC, Real Salt Lake will take a two-game road trip until returning home for a match with Minnesota at the end of the month.
