Coming off one of the more amazing victories in franchise history, Real Salt Lake hosts the expansion Montreal Impact on Wednesday at Rio Tinto Stadium.

RSL looked beaten on Saturday night in Portland, trailing the Timbers 2-1 heading into the final minutes of regulation time. But a goal by newcomer Jonny Steele in the 89th minute and another by team captain Kyle Beckerman in the 93rd minute stunned the home team, silenced the home crowd and kept Real Salt Lake unbeaten on the road this season (2-0).

RSL is tied atop the Western Conference standings at 3-1. Montreal, 0-4, is at the bottom of the Eastern Conference and is coming off a 5-2 loss to the New York Red Bulls on Saturday. However, RSL's only loss this season came at home to the team at the bottom of the Western Conference standings, Chivas USA — whose only win is over the team from Utah. —
