Sporting Kansas City versus Real Salt Lake isn’t a rivalry. It’s more like a bitter feud based on a little bit of bad blood, a lot of similarities and major philosophical differences.
It’s also one of the best match-ups the league can offer: Two highly competitive small-market teams with dedicated owners, passionate fan bases and young head coaches with clear soccer identities. Also, the games are usually intense. The last five games between these two teams have averaged 4.6 yellow cards and 27.2 fouls per game, as well as two red cards.
In order to figure out which team will come out on top Saturday and claim the MLS Cup, we’ll need to break the matchup down to its core components.
