SANDY, Utah (AP) -- Alvaro Saborio scored two goals, including the winner in second-half injury time, to give Real Salt Lake a 2-1 victory on Wednesday over Panama's Arabe Unido in an opening game in Group A of the CONCACAF Champions League.

The Panama side finished with nine men. Nahil Carroll was sent off in the 29th. Andres Santamaria was shown a pair of yellow cards following the winning goal.
