EDINBURG, Texas (September 8, 2018) — Rio Grande Valley FC (4-12-11, 24 points) returns home to host the Real Monarchs SLC on Saturday September 8. Kickoff starts at 8:30 p.m. for the Toros. Prior to the game, Tigres UANL and Atlas De Guadalajara will face each other at H-E-B Park. The Toros match will be broadcast live on ESPN+.
The RGVFC will hit their home turf following a short road trip to Arizona where they fell 0-1 to Phoenix Rising FC. The Toros managed a scoreless first half, however, in the 61st minute the Rising took the lead after a defensive miscue. A tall task lies ahead for RGVFC as they host the division leading Real Monarchs SLC squad. An expected large crowd and home field advantage look to aid RGVFC in tallying the win, adding three more points to their record.
Real Monarchs SLC enters the match atop the standings, however, have struggled in the last couple of matches. Following back to back losses they look to regroup and challenge the Toros in their own back yard. On the road the Monarchs have struggled to win throughout the season, a statistic which could benefit the RGVFC Toros Saturday evening.
The previous meeting between these two teams resulted in a 0-2 loss for RGVFC at Real Monarchs SLC.
