Seattle Sounders FC ventures to Utah and the home of defending MLS Cup champion Real Salt Lake for the first road match of its 2010 MLS season on Saturday night. Kickoff is set for 6 p.m. PT at Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy, Utah.

Both the Sounders FC (1-1-0, 3 points) and Real Salt Lake (1-1-0, 3 points) are coming off losses. Seattle fell to New York at home, 1-0, last Saturday. RSL was beaten at Houston, 2-1, on April 1.
