Rimando says Real Salt Lake will not sit back in CL final

Real Salt Lake goalkeeper Nick Rimando has made it clear that the team will not sit back and wait in the CONCACAF Champions League final on Wednesday night.

The MLS club take a scoreline of 2-2 into the second leg after a strong performance away from home against Mexico's Monterrey last week but will not depend on having those away goals when they take to Rio Tinto Stadium in the decider.

"In the back of our minds, we know 0-0 is good enough, but we want to get some goals," Rimando said.

"We can't just sit back and play defense the whole game. That's not our game, that's not our strategy and it never will be, because we don't play good that way."
