Sporting KC has long had its playoff spot secured, but can in its last season competition go up to first place in the Western Conference. To take first place would require a win over Real Salt Lake, as well as a loss from the Seattle Sounders. Some other result, and Sounders is on top.

After back-to-back losses, the Real Salt Lakes’ chances of reaching the MLS Cup playoffs are slim. The team is now two points below the playoff line. To reach the playoffs, Real Salt Lake must win in Kansas City. Any other result, and their season is over.

Real Salt Lake has a clean health bill this week and with the season underway, a total effort from the entire list will be required.

Kansas City: Melia; Marins, Fontas, Sanchez, Zusi; Espinoza, Walter, Kinda; Salloi, Russell, Shelton

Salt lake: Ochoa; Holt, Herrera, Glad, Chang; Luiz, Ruiz, Brody; Rusnak, Rubin, Kreilach

In the history of this Western rivalry through the ages, Real Salt Lake has a slight advantage with a league lead of 13-12-8. The teams met in the MLS Cup final in 2013, where SKC lifted their second MLS cup in a 1-1 (7-6) home victory. In an earlier meeting this season, RSL took home a 3-1 win in Utah on May 5th.

Both sides have something to play for in this rivalry renewal in the last week of the regular season. The usual intensity of this match will only be amplified by the circumstances as the season draws to a close. For Kansas City, a win could place them at the top of the conference for the second year in a row, and for Salt Lake, anything but a win ends the season. But after back-to-back losses, it’s hard to see Salt Lake win over a motivated Kansas City team.

Prediction: Sporting Kansas City 1-0 Real Salt Lake
