Even last year's Western Conference Champions were no match for this year's Real Salt Lake

For the second straight week, RSL is topping this week's SBI MLS Power Rankings after vanquishing the Portland Timbers last Saturday, 1-0, at Rio Tinto Stadium. Ned Grabavoy scored his side's goal late but the clean sheet was preserved by an outstanding performance from goalkeeper Nick Rimando, keeping the Timbers off the board.

Just one week after scoring a game-winner against the Vancouver Whitecaps, it looked like Robbie Keane could repeat the feat once again but alas, his Los Angeles Galaxy had to settle for a 2-2 draw Saturday in Vancouver.

With the score tied at one, Keane gave the Galaxy the lead in the 77th minute, giving Whitecaps supporters feelings of deja vu from last week's matchup.

Real Salt Lake and the LA Galaxy have already faced each other this season, but the Western Conference powers have been lined up as opponents again this weekend in the marquee match-up of MLS Week Three.

Nick Rimando single-handedly saved RSL in the season-opening meeting, but Real Salt Lake should be a tougher team to deal with at Rio Tinto Stadium as they face a Galaxy side that is coming off a disappointing CONCACAF Champions League exit last Tuesday against Club Tijuana.

Tijuana Coach Cesar Faria On the second leg I think we can overturn the result in Tijuana.

Jaime Penedo had a pretty amazing game for the Galaxy versus the Xolos on Wednesday.

I decided to combine the quotes about his goalkeeping here, since they didn't really fit the feature piece I wrote for ESPNFC.

We had the sort of game today that I think deserved better luck for our side.
