SALT LAKE CITY – After neither team could get on the board in the first 70 minutes, Diego Luna took matters into his own hands.
The goal was Luna’s fifth of the season.
What a finish from Diego Luna! 🤩

Luna ran out on the break, saved the ball from going out of bounds, and sent a strike past the Rapids goalkeeper into the top right corner.
Luna also scored in Real Salt Lake’s last game against the LA Galaxy.

RSL could potentially move up the West standings with a win. Luna’s score made it so they just had to hold onto their lead for the remaining 20 minutes.

Colorado sits at the bottom of the conference with a record of 5-16-12.
The Rapids have two losses and two draws in their last five games.
RSL only trails the four-seed Houston Dynamo by one point. A win could put Real in the top four in the West with much better positioning in postseason play.
