Already out of regular time, Dejan Joveljic tied the match with a goal inside the box, with a powerful shot, however, the play had to be reviewed with the VAR, so the referee went to the screen.

Thus, Real Salt Lake takes the 3 points this weekend and remains in position 4 in the Western Conference, while the LA Galaxy is in position 3.
