Sacramento Republic at Real Monarchs: How to Watch and Match Thread

Republic need goals in a big way, but getting them against second-place SLC won’t be easy. Here’s what you need to know.

Sacramento Republic are in Sandy, Utah today to take on surprising Western Conference contender Real Monarchs SLC. Republic last won a match on April 8th at Tulsa Roughnecks, and not coincidentally, have not scored since.

The Monarchs feature former Republic player Chase Minter, as well as a stacked cast of contributors who have lost just once in seven matches this year. They are averaging over 2.5 goals per match, to the Republic’s 1.0. Our colleague at RSL Soapbox, Dave Cheever, says that Republic needs to come out swinging in order to not get bogged down by Real’s home-field advantage at altitude.
