Fredrikstad FK and RSL faced off at Estádio Municipal Bela Vista in Parchal, Portugal. Fredrikstad FK is a member of the Norweigan professional league Eliteserien.

Just like in the first game, Anderson Julio gave RSL a first-half lead.

Julio scored off of a penalty kick in the 36th minute and Real held that lead going into the halftime break.

In the second half, newly-acquired Alexandros Katranis got his first minutes with the club as he subbed in for Bryan Oviedo.

Chicho Arango also got on the pitch in the second half.

RSL learned from its game earlier this week and continued to play suffocating defense in the second half.

Real shut out Fredrikstad FK and walked away with a 1-0 win.

New look Real Salt Lake in 2024

Since the end of the 2023 season, RSL has undergone major changes, including a front office overhaul. Former general manager Elliot Fall and multiple assistant coaches on Pablo Mastroeni’s staff were relieved of their duties. Club legend Jason Kreis returned to the team as director of operations and special projects. The team also made six picks in the MLS SuperDraft and parted ways with former MLS All-Star Damir Kreilach.

In mid-January, RSL traded Jasper Löffelsend, signed USL prospect Fidel Barajas, and saw forward Jefferson Savarino sign with a team in Brazil.

Last season, Real Salt Lake posted a 14-8-12 record. The team was eliminated in the first round of the MLS Cup Playoffs by Houston Dynamo FC.

RSL kicks off its 2024 regular season schedule on the road against Inter Miami FC on February 21.
