Up next for Chivas USA: Saturday vs. Real Salt Lake

The MLS season is winding down for Chivas, which isn't in playoff contention but could, with a win over Real Salt Lake, escape the Western Conference cellar.

September 29, 2012



When: 7:30.

Where: Home Depot Center.

On the air: TV: KWHY, Prime Ticket.

Records: Chivas USA 7-15-7, Real Salt Lake 15-11-4.

Record vs. Real Salt Lake: 1-1-0.

Update: The playoffs, which haven't been a realistic goal for Chivas USA for weeks, could become a mathematical impossibility Saturday if it loses and Vancouver beats Seattle. Chivas hasn't won since July 28, going 0-7-2 in its last nine matches — the longest winless streak since the franchise's inaugural season in 2005. And the team has scored just one goal in five matches this month. However, one of Chivas' Western Conference-low seven wins came against Real Salt Lake. And with a victory Saturday, Chivas could escape the cellar, vaulting over two teams into seventh place in the nine-team conference.
