A duo of MLS veterans and Real Salt Lake favorites parted ways with the club this offseason. Yura Movsisyan was waived, while long-term defender Chris Wingert called it quits on his career.
The void left by Movsisyan had to be filled. Real Salt Lake went out and added Spanish forward, Alfredo Ortuño. The other big signing of the offseason followed a trend around MLS. Go out and get a young South American playmaker. Salt Lake found that in Argentine Pablo Ruiz.
Midfielder Albert Rusnak is the only player for Real Salt Lake who has more than one goal and one assist. He only trails one teammate in goals so far through 2018. That teammate is Joao Plata, who has netted three times this season.
Real Salt Lake is one of three teams City remains undefeated against in MLS play. The Lions drew 1-1 in 2015, followed by the memorable 2-2 comeback draw on opening day in 2016, and the last installment in the series saw our boys take a 1-0 win on the road last season.
