In the last meeting between the two sides, El Paso Locomotive suffered its first and only defeat so far in the 2021 USL Championship season. Since that night at H-E-B Park. Locomotive picked up right where it left off, beginning a new undefeated streak that currently stands at nine games and a record of 7-0-2 (23 points). Most recently was a draw that saw Locomotive claim the point at Isotopes Park against New Mexico Untied on a stoppage-time goal after going down a man due to a red card in the 77th minute.
Rio Grande Valley has seen a mixture of results since hosting El Paso Locomotive having also played a total of nine games with a record of 2-3-3 (9 points). In the past week, RGV Toros have played twice, falling to a staggering 5-2 scoreline against a visiting Switchbacks FC side before recording a 1-1 draw against Copa Tejas rival Austin Bold FC at Bold Stadium. Both teams enter Saturday eager to make a difference on the Mountain Division table as Locomotive has an opportunity to further claim the Division while RGV seeks to reclaim the top spot by closing some distance.
